Following my husband’s heart attack we had to make many changes. I decided to share our stories and our lessons because we found it hard to navigate and find information – especially when it came to food. My husband had a compound issue, not just recovering from a heart attack and having to eat heart-smart, he was also on insulin for the first 6 months (although we didn’t know how long he would be on it in the beginning).

Finding cooking help for a compound issue was difficult – there are lots of heart health cookbooks but many recipes were high in sugar. There are lots of diabetes cookbooks but many recipes had too much fat. I had to create my own recipes and source out foods – which I’ll talk about in my blog.

We lost 50 pounds each and since then many people have asked what we’ve changed. In short, this blog will tell you what we did.
