48 people die from coronary heart disease each day


This is my last dish in the #cookwithheart challenge raising funds for the Heart Foundation.  Please help me reach my target by sponsoring me.


This cauliflower and cashew korma is so easy and quick to make.  https://www.heartfoundation.org.au/Recipes/Cauliflower-and-cashew-korma.  


48 people die from #coronaryheartdisease (there are many types of heart disease) each day and it is the single largest cause of death in Australia.  Significantly, it is  the most preventable.  Eating more plant based food and proteins like seafood will go a long way to reducing your risk for coronary heart disease.  And of course, exercise and looking after your mental health are also important. 


Your dollars allow the Heart Foundation to fund research like that of Dr Lauren Blekkenhorst to investigate further the vascular and metabolic health benefits of vegetables. https://www.heartfoundation.org.au/Research/Lauren-Blekkenhorst?utm_medium=Email&utm_source=ExactTarget&utm_campaign=%20Research_newsletter_June2020.


So, please help me help the Health Foundation prevent heart disease and improve the heart health and quality of life of all Australians through research, prevention and support.

More research money

Today there was much joy when the Fed Government through its Medical Research Future Fund joined with the Heart Foundation to announce $8mil in funding for targeted research. Of particular interest to me is research into women and heart disease.  Part of this stream will look into disparities in treatment and care between men and women. There is also research into preventing and treating heart disease in cancer survivors caused by toxic treatments. For more information https://www.heartfoundation.org.au/media-releases/8-million-for-heart-research.


As a member of the zipper club, I am helping raise much needed funds for the Heart Foundation as it continues its now 61 year journey in funding research, prevention and providing care and support. You can too by supporting my #cookwithheart challenge and sponsoring me as I learn to cook 5 dishes from the Heart Foundation collection.


My fourth dish is Vietnamese fish cakes.  It is quick and easy to make and packs well for work lunch. https://www.heartfoundation.org.au/Recipes/Vietnamese-fish-cakes-with-vermicelli-salad


There are so many worthy causes to support at this moment, but especially if you, a family member, a workmate or friend suffers from any form of heart disease please support me to support the Heart Foundation. 


Fish Fingers - so good

I am helping raise much needed funds for the Heart Foundation and you can too by supporting my #cookwithheart challenge and sponsoring me as I learn to cook 5 dishes from the Heart Foundation collection.

For my third dish, I made Fish Fingers with Sweet Potato chips (accompanied by kimchi).  So easy and so good. https://www.heartfoundation.org.au/Recipes/Fish-fingers-with-sweet-potato-wedges

You can help by donating the amount you would usually spend for your lunch today.  Any amount helps the Heart Foundation lead the fight to save Aussie Hearts. 

Who doesn’t like lasagna?

I love lasagna.  It has all the essential things vital for happiness - lots of carbs, butter, milk, cheese, all tomatoey and gooey deliciousness.  Yet, those are things people tell you is bad when you are trying to eat healthy. With a few modifications, you can guilt free truly enjoy lasagna. 


Find out about healthy eating here https://www.heartfoundation.org.au/heart-health-education/healthy-eating and check out recipes on the site.  They are delicious (and no one will suspect they are ‘healthy’).


It is donations from people like you that allows the Heart Foundation to sieve through tonnes of studies on nutrition and prepare guidelines to help us eat healthy for healthy hearts and happy lives.

My second dish is ‘lasagna’.  So good! 

I don’t like Dahl

There are so many worthy causes this time of year.  If you have heart disease, have family or friends who have heart disease, i am asking you to make a donation to the  Heart Foundation to help us continue our work and save lives. 

Dahl brings back memories of being fatigue, dizzy, nauseous, diarrhoea, constipation and headaches whilst i was hiking to Everest Base Camp.  I had to force myself to eat, and there was a lot of Dahl.  In an effort to not have to go on high blood pressure tablets (strong history of family hypertension) I would get super fit and the goal was EBC.  HBP was not the cause of my eventual surgery, but as a result of it I was already under the care of a wonderful team who in later years identified the ‘whoosh whoosh’ sound coming from my heart.


Heart disease is caused by many factors.  As a first step, do our health health calculator https://www.heartfoundation.org.au/heart-age-calculator  It may save your life. 


I cooked cauliflower, Dahl and spinach. Didn’t quiet look like Curtis Stone’s.  I still don’t like Dahl.

Please support the work of Heart Foundation and make a donation.

I've decided to cook with heart and raise funds for the Heart Foundation!

Welcome to my fundraising page!

I have decided to help raise funds for the Heart Foundation and at the same time, learn to cook.  I have never had any interest in cooking, although I do love to eat.  

If you, family or a friend have heart disease or is at risk of heart disease, the chances are your medical team would have used guidelines provided by HF to treat you.  Your cardiologist/surgeon could have been a HF scholar, taught by a HF scholar, used research funded by the HF.  Your now diet is the result of work done by HF. The walks you take along footpaths and green areas to stay fit would have been influenced by work done by HF. 

That’s why I’m fundraising for the Heart Foundation’s Cook with Heart Challenge – and I hope you’ll consider donating.

To reach my fundraising goal, I’ve decided to cook 5 heart healthy recipes in 10 days. It’s a challenge, but it will be worth it! And I will post a pix with a story.

Donating is easy – just click the ‘Give Now’ button and select the amount you’d like to contribute.

I’d love it if you could share my Cook with Heart fundraising page with friends, family and others in your community. Fundraising is a collective effort – the more people who get involved, the bigger the difference we can make.

Thank you for your generosity, it means a lot!

Thank you to my Sponsors
