I did a quick walk yesterday afternoon before our dinner guests arrived. On the way back I took the route that requires an uphill walk up a ramp. I sure felt that, and not in a good way, with a little chest tightness and SOB.
For Christmas dinner I cooked a vegetarian entree: Tofuturkey. I've tried the stuffed tofu substitute poultry entrees that are available at our local Whole Foods and I like them. So we had something that didn't have to die available for those so inclined, in addition to the traditional "dead bird" that we're all used to. Three out of seven opted to go vegetarian, which is also heart healthy.
