Lightening Up with a New 'Sunset' Book

Article excerpt

HELPING YOU REDUCE fat in what you eat is an ongoing objective of recipes published in Sunset Magazine and Sunset Books. Our recently released Low-Fat Cook Book gives you another effective tool for keeping proper proportions of fat and cholesterol in your diet.

Recipes in this book were researched and assembled by Cynthia Scheer to yield satisfying and well-balanced dishes. None has more--and many have far less than 30 percent of calories from fat, meeting the American Heart Association's limitations on daily fat intake. Patricia Kearney, clinical dietitian at Stanford University Hospital, acted as a consultant.

Numerous color photographs illustrate the 120 recipes, which are organized by subject from appetizers through desserts. The opening chapter discusses the different kinds of fats and their effect on health, the other foods and factors that affect fat metabolism, and low-fat cooking techniques to apply to your own favorite recipes.

In addition, the extensive appendix has helpful reference information, such as a glossary of nutrition terms, information on understanding package labels, and size and weight charts.

This book, published in 1992, is available for $8.95 from bookstores, or from Sunset Publishing Corporation, Menlo Park, California (add $2.50 if ordering direct).

These quick, hearty bean cakes illustrate the appealing nature of recipes in this book.
