Hi!
My dh recently had a heart attack. I'm now looking for heart healthy cookbooks and menus.
His weight is fine and the Drs. want him to keep his LDL where it's at now and work on increasing his HDL.
Low salt is another factor I'm looking for.

I've been lucky in always liking fruits and veggies, fish and poultry

Hi Melissa,
I've had all sorts of trouble today with the boards and iVillage (probably the changes and will be fixed soon) so I thought I'd check as I don't see any links?

Maybe my one brain cell left is finally

Hi Deb,
Thanks for the welcome. :) What a nice looking family you have, furkids and all.
We have two grown sons both who follow their dad on eating the tasty bad stuff. The oldest who loves to cook and cook Southern has learned to eat a little differently now.

Hi again Melissa, :)
Your little ones are just precious! I did find an AHA cookbook on line. Thanks for the heads up! :)
What other ones do you recommend?
