Foods cardiologists won’t eat — most of which I love

Sometimes it’s really not difficult to understand why I’ve had two stents in the past 111 years. The foods I always loved the most are the worst for heart health. I started this blog to find other things to eat, but when I see pieces like this, Cardiologists Share The 1 Food They Never (Or Rarely) Eat, I tend to feel very, very hungry.

Fried chicken is on my no-eat list again, after splurging on it during Covid.

The list includes donuts, big, fatty steaks, bacon, bologna and fried chicken! Indeed the only two things on the list that do not make my mouth water are breakfast sausages and margarine.

I grew up taking bologna sandwiches to school almost every day. In college, we would fry it, thinking that meant we were becoming chefs!

During the pandemic, I tended to leave my heart-healthy diet behind, thinking Covid would kill me before heart disease would. I ate a lot more cake and donuts, not to mention fried chicken, which a local supermarket has on special every Monday.

Eating healthy is tough. But it’s time for me to get back to it. My blood pressure rose to unacceptable levels during Covid as I gained weight. I need to drop pounds and get it under control again. Bye, bye fried chicken!!!
