8 Foods, 8 Weeks to Reverse Heart Disease

prevent a second heart attack

“We are indeed much more that what we eat, but what we eat can nevertheless help us to be much more than what we are.”    – Adelle Davis, pioneer nutritionist and author

I’m often approached about reviewing cookbooks and for the most part accept without hesitation. After all, if you’re a chef or just love to cook, reading through recipes is a guilty pleasure unlike any other. But reading about heart disease? Not as much of a pleasure. And I thought about not reading this one.

Then it occurred to me that as blessed as I’ve been not to have heart disease touch my life, it’s quite likely that it’s touched many of yours. And how wonderful it would be if someone who receives this book could actually prevent themselves or a loved one from losing their lives. Or at the very least, understand how to improve their health. That’s something that everyone can benefit from.

And the surprising thing is that I really enjoyed the read. It’s written in a way that made me feel as if the author, Janet Bond Brill, Ph.D,R.D.,LDN, is a doctor friend who enjoys sharing her heart-health knowledge. And it’s a bonus to understand why the food we put into our bodies makes such a difference to our heart.

My favorite part of the book is the meal plan, checklist and recipes. There are some really delicious sounding recipes, such as Shallow-Poached Salmon with Fennel & Saffron. Or how about Shrimp with Artichoke-Garlic Sauce? And let’s finish that off with Dark Chocolate Brownies with Walnuts! Yes, please!

Speaking of walnuts, here’s an interesting article written by the author:
