The major artery blockage I had in 2012 that nearly ended my life led to the creation of this blog. And that in turn has hopefully led to me helping otter people who find they need to completely change how they eat, either out of medical necessity or simply out of a desire to cut the massive amounts of salt, fat and sugar in most foods Americans routinely eat today.
The blog has been a labor of love for me, as well as a great motivator to find and try new recipes that fit in my new low-salt, low-fat, low-sugar lifestyle. So I’m very excited to have a chance to talk about it this week with other heart disease survivors. I invite anyone in the Chicago area with an interest in such topics to stop by.
I’ll be part of a panel discussion at the Mended Hearts group at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. Here are the specifics:
Mended Hearts Chapter 106 Meeting at Northwestern Memorial Hospital
Topic: Patient Panel: What I did to get my life and health back together after my heart surgery
Speaker: Mended Heart Members
Date and Time: May 12, 2015, 6-7 pm
Location: Prentice Women’s Hospital, 250 E. Superior St., Room J (2nd floor)
I hope to see all my friends there, and then go out for some lettuce afterward!
