Book Review: Love in the Time of Cholesterol — 12 Comments

  1. I love the title of this book! I like the look of your pizza. I think I just might give it a try! 🙂 Hope you’re having a great weekend!

  2. Your unusual pizza looks very delicious to me. I love sprouts, sourdough, avocado (just had some on bread for breakfast!) and good cheese. This book sounds like a good read; unfortunately I know too many people who have spouses that had heart attacks because of their unhealthy lifestyle. For them, it may be a great read!

  3. I love the look and sound of your pizza — and I happen to have an avocado in the house …. hummmmm. I also books that inform people that eating heart healthy does not mean eating boring. Most of all, I like the reminder about sprouts. I used to make sprouts all the time but somehow got away from it — it’s been years! But I still have my sprouters. I’m going to dig them out and buy some seeds today.

  4. I love avocado and my husband loves sprouts. This pizza looks like it’s made for us. I’ll have to give it a try!

  5. Joy, This memoir sounds like one I’d love to read (and need to read) and I just put it on my TBR list. I’m enjoying the book challenges and all the wonderful people and book suggestions. (I just pretend once in a while to be a book blogger — but I love to read!)

  7. EDAMAME HOUMOUS!!! Wow, I’m truly very curious how that’ll turn out. Will you post about it? And there’s an even bigger wow-factor in the fact that you get edamame in your CSA! 😮 I can’t even get them fresh here in Holland, only frozen, let alone in my CSA vegetables… That would be the day! 🙂

    The sprouty avocado pizza sounds absolutely weird but I might just try it! Yum, avocado 🙂

    You’re going great with the Foodie’s Reading Challenge btw!

  8. On June 14, 2011 I had my first ever operation, an emergency quadriple bypass. I was 55 years and 11 months old and the picture of health. I had known that something was wrong but felt to weak to go to a Doctor. Eight days later as I arrived home my sister presented me with your book, she had just found it and read it and said Basils’ explanations sounded just like mine! With my emotions being so high then low, I would actually cry as you explaned the feelings he (we) were going thru. I wasnt crazy, and now I had a new awareness of life. Your book helped me get thrugh that second week and I want to thank you from the bottom of my repaired heart! I feel a connection with Cecily and Basil, because while many loved ones were around me, They knew my feelings. My chest still hurts and it makes this clicking sound when I turn but Doctors say it is normal and I am making a fantastic recovery! That one or two minutes in recovery still scare me so you better beleave, I am learning a lot of new recepies!! Thank You Both!!! Joseph L Mullinax
