Atrial Fibrillation Approved Grocery Haul for October 22, 2017!

Hello and welcome everyone to another episode of Cooking with Fey!

Today I thought I would share with you a grocery haul that is perfect for those of us with Atrial Fibrillation. When shopping for groceries with Atrial Fibrillation, try to stick with fresh fruits and vegetables and unprocessed meats. The goal is to eat food in as close to it’s nature state as possible, so try to avoid foods found in boxes or cans.

You’ll also want to try and limit your salt or sugar intake. I’m trying out some powdered peanut butter to add more protein to my diet and ward off those pesky sugar cravings. Salt is another thing to avoid. By reducing your intake of boxed or canned food items you can decrease your salt intake fairly easily and naturally. When cooking, try to cut back on how much salt you would normally use and see how your meal tastes. You might be surprised by how easy it is to reduce your salt content in food without sacrificing flavor.

Leafy greens are a must, as they are a great source of micro-nutrients your body needs. Carrots are an amazing addition to your diet for their vitamin content as well, so try roasting or steaming them to add to your lunches or dinners throughout the week.

Meat is a great source of protein to help your body repair and maintain muscle tissue, like your heart. So be sure to get between 40-60 grams of protein each day to help your body performing at its best.

Excerpt from my book: What is Atrial Fibrillation?

Hello everyone and welcome to a post from my new series about the book I am writing! This excerpt is from the section I’m currently working on about describing what Atrial Fibrillation is in terms of a medical condition. To learn more, read on.

What is Atrial Fibrillation?

Atrial fibrillation is an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) or skipped heart beats that can lead to a whole host of terrifying health concerns such as: blood clots, stroke or even heart failure. In the United States alone there are at least 2.7 million people living with this health condition.

Medically speaking, during an atrial fibrillation episode, the upper chambers of the heart beat at an irregular rhythm instead of beating in a normal rhythmic patten to move blood into the lower chambers of the heart. Think of it as electrical misfires.

How do you know if you have AFib? Some people, myself included, describe the experience as skipped heart beats or a sudden racing heart rate that leaves them gasping for air or feeling like they were having a heart attack. That’s what happened during my first AFib episode. My heart rate reached 190 beats per minute (an average heart rate is around 60-90 beats a minute), then it started randomly skipping beats. The tension in my chest was so unbearable it became difficult to breathe and I honestly thought it was a heart attack.

Happy reading!

Cheers,

Fey
