75 deliciously healthier recipes for any day of the week!
At the age of 26, Breeana's husband was suddenly and unexpectedly diagnosed with severe heart failure. Following his diagnosis, she set out to regain his health—which she succeeded in doing by completely revamping their diets. In these pages is the story of how Breanna cured her husband, and seventy-five of the clean and delicious, gluten- and dairy-free recipes that helped her do so. Recipes include:
Sweet Potato Breakfast Sliders
BBQ Chicken Zucchini Noodle Bowl
Mango-Mint Salsa with Cucumber Chips
Honey Cornbread with Jalapenos
Roasted Red Pepper and Garlic Hummus Dip
Shrimp and Kale Fettucine in a Cauliflower Cream Sauce
Sloppy Joe Stuffed Baked Potatoes
The first step was to throw out everything in the refrigerator, go grocery shopping, and dedicate one hundred percent of her time, energy, and passion. She wanted to create healthy, nutrient-filled recipes to heal her husband’s heart, but would also taste gourmet and savory. Flash forward one year and her husband not only no longer needs a heart transplant, but also is healthier than he has been in his entire life, and his heart is within normal range—the results are tried and true! Food had truly saved his life.
Breeana is the creator of the popular Instagram account @the_organic_heart and the food blog www.the-organic-heart.com. She combined her love for food and culinary skills to create healing, healthy, and delicious recipes that aided her husband in a complete recovery after being diagnosed with heart failure. It is Breeana's mission to show others the importance of using food as medicine and how easy it is to create healthy meals so you never have to feel deprived. She and her husband Jason reside with their fur-babies Dexter and Sansa in Fullerton, California.
