I have just been told that my BP is high and it has opened my eyes to healthy living.

My husband’s doctor told him he had high blood pressure and he came home depressed. The silly man thought he would never eat well again. How wrong he was. Here’s what we did.

1) His doctor said to lose weight. So we cut out all the sweets and treats. (I took away his whisky until he lost the 15 lbs.)

2) His doctor said to get exercise. So I pointed him to the garden and told him to grow vegetables.

3) I cooked the vegetables he grew avoiding fancy sauces. They were delicious and we were both happy.

Now his BP is under control, I have an organic garden and Fred has a touch of his precious whisky every now and then.
