Anything on the Mediteranean diet (what the Italians eat) Italians have less heart disease
than those of us in US and UK, and this is attributed to their diet. Lots of lovely lean meat and fresh fish with vegetables and salads dressed in olive oil. Add to this as much garlic as you can stand....or garlic capsules
if your partner complains. It has the side effect of keeping the vampires away!
Try cookin fresh salmon by wrapping in foil with lemon and parsley and baking in the oven for 15 minutes, medium heat. Serve with potato wedges (preferably home made and without extra salt) Add garlic for flavour instead of salt. Choose your favourite salad or veg to go wit this dish. If you don't like these foods much, don't worry, you can get used to them, and you will soon wonder why you ever ate anything else, because they are Real food and very good for your health generally, as well as your heart.
Keep your intake of salt as low as possible - lots of processed foods contain this.
Sorry, but you should avoid smoking
and large quantites of alcohol!! But a glass of wine a day with your evening meal could be beneficial - check with your doc.
Try to keep your stress
levels low. Do some very gentle exercise and some relaxation to your favourite music.
Ask for and give lots of HUGS!! Very therapeutic "food" for the soul.
