It is a recipe created by our ‘Cooking Cardiologist’, Dr Ali Khavandi. He claims it is delicious and he’s usually right on this front, (always right on this front, to be fair). Ali knows and loves good food.
This meal fulfils all our CardioKit criteria, comprising carefully selected ‘ingredients for a healthy life’, all of which you can read about elsewhere on this website, (just search for ‘nuts’ or ‘olive oil’ and so on).
At CardioKit we recommend fresh, local produce wherever possible and what could be more fresh and local that wild garlic, currently in season (APRIL 2018). Buy the best chicken you can afford, keeping in mind our ‘quality over quantity’ recommendation for meat-eaters.
It’s a CardioKit recipe, which means we’re focused on improving cardiovascular health through diet. We’re hoping by following our advice you won’t need to ever meet a Cardiologist, unless you come along to a Cardiologist’s Kitchen event of course! Here’s a health tip from Ali; dried apricots and parsley have some of the highest levels of potassium of any food. This means they are great for lowering blood pressure and that is interesting, isn’t it?
