Old Food ……

It’s important for heart transplant patients health to eat good, quality foods. Many of us have had wonderful meals over the past few days. turkey, ham, seafood ~ holiday feasts for sure!

As we are deep into the holiday season right now, it’s important to remember a couple of things that will need to be cleaned out soon.

A month or so ago I was reminded that not everyone keeps vigil on how long things remain in their refrigerators. I was given the task to clean out a close relative’s refrigerator and found something that was completely UNIDENTIFIABLE in a plastic bag. It was black, slimy, and it could have once been a mammal or a vegetable. It was an “O-M-G” moment for sure.

So, as a little reminder, please check and purge your refrigerator of old, nasty, smelly or unidentifiable foods.

Also, for many, the New Year means cleaning out. Getting rid of old stuff.

While black, slimy things may not be found in your pantry, I’d be willing to bet there are some old and out dated foods in there. How long has that can of soup or beans been in there? How about that half used box of pasta? Mmmmmm, how about them old beets?

You know the drill and the rules ……. purge it if its old and out dated!!

Your heart depends on good food!
