From the heart of our nation comes a cookbook that has been popular for a decade. Linda Hachfeld and Betsy Eykyn are committed to helping us avoid statistics - becoming one, that is. In Cooking A'La Heart they provide information that is substantiated by research.
Tables listing food contents are included at the end of each recipe. For example, if you are serving "Wild Rice Chicken Casserole" you will read that a serving contains 343 calories. The serving contains 12 grams of fat, 7 milligrams of cholesterol, 245 milligrams of sodium, 172 milligrams of calcium and 1 gram of dietary fiber. Information for diabetics is listed as an exchange formula. For the wild rice recipe the exchanges would read: 2 lean meat, 2 starch, 1 vegetable, 1 fat.
