This book will not help readers who really need to understand what No Salt means. It's recipes are off the wall and its textbook appearance is a turn off, especially since most of the material is basic. Recipes have too much sodium and even use some salt in many of them. For instance, her "Annette's Oatmeal Waffles" recipe has about 200mg of sodium per waffle. Too high for heart patients or those with hypertension. There are occassional assists concerning where to find certain foods and condiments, but that's as far as it goes. The author's designated authority is her M.S. and her CNS (certified nutritional scientist), but she had no R.D., which puts her out of the nutritional loop as far as authority. Her connection with the Pritikin group makes her effort suspect as a commercial venture.
