Well I thought I would start a July thread for us, hope thats ok with everyone. My dad had his heart worked on yesterday and had one blockage that was 99.9% blocked. It was lucky that he didnt have a heart attack. They were able to balloon it out so they didnt have to do bypass, which was also lucky. They are changing some of the ways that they are eating now because of this. My dad has high cholesterol too, so that doesnt help. I brought some of my vegetarian books down for my mom to look at while we waited and explained about good and bad fats. I think they are going to choose a lot more non-meat meals. My mom said they went to someones house and had a casserole made with soymeat (hamburger like) and said it was really good. I dont think she thinks Im as crazy as she once did for going veggie.
