Heart disease has been called the silent killer, but it’s also the sudden, often unexpected killer. You can be feeling perfectly fine one moment and have a heart attack or stroke the next without any warning, or at least without any warning you recognize. Believe me, I know, having had two stents implanted in my clogged arteries in the past five years.
So any cookbook that starts with a tale of heart disease is sure to get my attention and The Organic Heart is just such a book. The author’s husband was a seemingly healthy young man when heart failure struck. She determined to aid in his recovery by creating new gluten-free, dairy free, “clean food” recipes to cook for them both are the result is this cookbook and its website.
If you know anyone who is worried about gluten and/or dairy, this would be worth a look for you, it could be a great Christmas gift.
Looking through the recipes and the site, however, I found no mention about how much salt, fat and sugar are in each dish, so if you’re worried about the evil three of most American food, this may not be for you.
