Learning about nutrition and reading nutrition labels became a priority for our family after my husband had a heart attack at the age of 45. “You are having a heart attack right now!” Imagine hearing those words from an ER doctor after bringing your 45- year-old husband to the hospital in the middle of the night. Being the calm wife that I am, I immediately starting screaming.
Needless to say, I was quickly escorted out of the room, and so our wake up call began. Once my husband was out of intensive care, I started searching Google for Heart Healthy Diets, ordered several cookbooks, and dug into all the information I could get my hands on about nutrition.
