Recently I went through a medical procedure. As I was leaving the ward, I was given a diet sheet. Top on the list of foods that were foods that were to be completely avoided which included some of my favourite oil fried Indian snacks. Mentally I was prepared to give up these.
As I went down the list and looked at the items that I could eat, I was pleased, because there were many items which I liked but had not consumed them in sufficient quantities. As I started recuperating, I was pleased with the new diet pattern that emerged.
That made me think through the question of what food is indeed good for the heart and what foods are not good. I thought it would be fun as well as a learning experience as we share from individual experiences on listing what foods are good for the heart. So here are the questions that you can answer. Hopefully we will have a good list that could be shared.
Which are the foods that are good for the heart?
Which are the foods that are bad for the heart?
How can the foods be prepared in a tasty manner without hurting the heart?
Once we start, more questions may emerge. Please do feel free to add your questions and thoughts into the ongoing discussions. Thanks.
