Cooking from the heart 1

The recipes in this book were selected from family favourites contributed by people all over South Africa. These have been adapted to follow the guidelines of the Heart and Stroke Foundation SA (HSFSA). Healthy eating is important for the whole family and not only for the person affected by a lifestyle disease. Healthy food doesn’t have to be expensive or bland and boring. With these affordable and tasty recipes we want to encourage you and your family to gradually make changes to the way you eat and cook.
