Seattle, WA (PRWEB) January 9, 2007
Heather's Tummy Care announces the wide release of their delicious new educational DVD, "Heather Cooks!" The first and only Irritable Bowel Syndrome cooking show originally aired on Seattle television is now available for distribution to major retailers. Heather Cooks! follows best-selling cookbook author Heather Van Vorous through the entertaining and educational preparation of favorite meals made digestion-friendly.
With a focus on fast-and easy recipes, shows range from traditional breakfasts to gourmet dinners to party snacks and more. Eight recipes are clearly explained and demonstrated in five separate episodes, with a total running time of 110 minutes. Each meal is low fat, high in soluble fiber, careful with insoluble fiber, and avoids all red meat, dairy, and other IBS triggers.
The shows provide simple step-by-step instructions, and are aimed at people who have little experience cooking, or who are unsure about how to modify their traditional cooking methods to meet the dietary needs of IBS. Helpful nutrition tips, cooking advice, and shopping specifics are generously sprinkled throughout each episode. The DVD includes beautiful watercolor hand-illustrated recipe cards.
Heather is the author of the best-selling Eating for IBS, which has sold over 100,000 copies, and was a finalist for the IACP Julia Child Cookbook Award. Her recipes have been licensed by companies as varied as Novartis Pharmaceuticals and Lee Kum Kee sauces. She hosts the Heather's Tummy Care patient support site, http://www.HelpForIBS.com (the world's largest IBS community), and publishes the twice-monthly IBS Newsletter for over 70,000 subscribers.
