"I have known Cheryl in her role as a dietitian and nutritionist in our cardiac rehabilitation program. Her extensive knowledge of nutrition science and guidelines has allowed her to incorporate the best evidence into the clinical information she passes on. Her advice is practical, understandable, and easy for most of us to incorporate into our daily dietary patterns. This book will be incredibly beneficial to anyone with coronary heart disease or cardiovascular disease, and, perhaps more importantly, it will also be a great help to those persons who are interested in preventing the occurrence of these types of life-threatening events."--James A. Stone, MD, PhD, FRCPC, FAACVPR, FACC

Cheryl has translated decades of heart-healthy nutrition research into a cookbook that is packed with ideas! She smartly addresses food labels and medical lingo with a solid understanding of the fear and overwhelmed state that many people (and their families) face after a heart health scare. It provides practical, reasonable information that is as reassuring as it is mouth-watering!"--Dr. Colleen Cannon, R.Psych, clinical psychologist, co-founder Craving Change Inc.

Cheryl is a food-loving dietitian who shows you how to get flavorful meals on the table in under 30 minutes with mouthwatering recipes that taste great and are good for you (and your heart).

"Cheryl has helped heart-attack sufferers to streamline their diet and eat better, and she can do the same for you, no heart attack required. Discover tons of thoughtful tips based on scientific evidence--and delicious recipes, too. I'm now a regular maker of "Better Butter" and I've broadened my breakfast repertoire with pancakes and frittatas. This is a great book to have on hand when vegetarian or vegan friends visit, but don't miss out on the variety of scrumptious and sensible meat dishes, too."--Raj Bhardwaj, MD
