Apples to Zucchini:
A Collection of Favorite Low Protein Recipes
by Virginia Schuett and Dorothy Corry is now available.
This new 512-page cookbook by nutritionist Virginia Schuett and parent Dorothy Corry contains 562 healthy and delicious recipes in 12 chapters: Salad Celebrations; Soup's On; Bread and Beyond; Vegetables for All Seasons; Rice from East to West; Pasta, Please!; Hot Off the Grill; Where's the Beef?; The Adventurous Cook; Company's Coming; Sweet Delights; And Everything Else.
The book's focus is on using naturally low protein fruits and vegetables, with minimal use of special brand-name low protein products. When pasta or bread are called for, the recipes allow you to use whatever kind/brand you prefer, whether low protein or store-bought, by not including those items in the analysis and letting you add them yourself. Some recipes are really low in protein, while others are a little higher for diets that are more lenient. Most of the recipes are suitable for the entire family and many give suggestions for adapting them to higher protein needs.
Other chapters in the book include Set Your Table for Taste and Health, Healthy Eating for Children (including many tips for picky eaters), Tips for Diet Management, All About Produce (helpful information for buying, preparing, and storing all of the fresh produce used in the book), Kitchen Tools and Techniques, Tips for Storing Prepared Foods, Resources, and several others.
Nutritional data includes phenylalanine (mg), tyrosine (mg), leucine (mg), protein (gm), and calories, as well as sodium (mg), potassium (mg), and phosphorous (mg) (the latter three nutrients make the book suitable for people on low protein diets to treat kidney disease).
