Virginia Schuett, MS, RD, founder and director of National PKU News, and Dorothy Corry, mother of a child with PKU, have teamed up to create a low protein cookbook that focuses on foods naturally low in protein rather than emphasizing low protein products.
Apples to Zucchini is a wonderful collection of recipes that will entice your entire family to eat healthfully. Nutrient analysis includes protein, calories, leucine, phenylalanine, tyrosine, sodium, potassium and phosphorous. Tips for buying, cooking and storing fruits and vegetables as well as menu ideas round out the book. Of particular value is the section on "Healthy Eating for Children (or How Do You Get Children to Eat Fruits and Vegetables?)," which will benefit anyone with young children.
The book can be ordered on-line through SHS North America by going to myspecialdiet.com or calling 1800-365-7354. The cost is $37 plus $10 shipping.
