I’m Josh, and I REALLY likes to cook and eat and eat and cook. I’m a southern cook at heart; I love buttery biscuits and bacon: all the really naughty food.
However, I have a history of early heart disease in my family. In 2014, at a check-up, my cholesterol was a little higher than I cared for, and I’ve been on a mission to bring it down (and keep it down). The good news: it’s working.
Since a heart healthy diet is not well defined and food labels are patronizing (a bag of lemons that say heart healthy, for example) or misleading (a processed, over-salted frozen dinner that says “heart healthy”), I hope you’ll join me as I continue hunting down and making up recipes that show what “heart healthy” means – and that it doesn’t have to be boring or bland.
I dedicate this blog to my late grandfather, Floyd, who lost the fight with heart disease.
