Down Home Wholesome.

AUTHOR: Danella Carter PUBLISHER: Dutton PRICE: $24.95 CALL: 800-253-6476

This book proves that it's possible to have a healthy love of soul food and still be healthy. The traditional high-fat, high-sodium African American diet has been linked to high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease and obesity. The author trims the extra fat, sugar and salt from some of your favorites--such as red beans and rice, catfish with cornmeal crust, shrimp and grits and peach cobbler--and replaces them with savory low-fat ingredients, fresh herbs and spices. Each recipe includes a nutritional analysis of calories, grams of fat, carbohydrates and sodium. Categories include Sunday breakfast, soups and stews, dinner classics, desserts and a chapter on healing bath tips. "As a fourth generation cook, I bring a flash of history, a brief family portrait, my most treasured recipes and, most importantly, a means of self-empowerment through proper diet and nutrition," says Carter.
