Note: The American Heart Association is now advising heart patients to follow vegan standards – for a diet low in saturated fats, high in vegetable and grain fiber (artery cleansing) and vitamins and minerals (artery strengthening).
I note that it depends upon how you cook things – as vegan foods can also be fried, and we need to select our cooking oils for optimal nutritional value. 🙂 – Chef Dana
Of course, every diet should be balanced, happy and delicious!
