The under-appreciated joy of making a meat loaf

This is a recipe (and blog) by a woman who had a heart attack and survived, in spite of doctors in the ER telling her she 'just had indigestion'.

She's now a speaker and blogger and has won awards. The emphasis is for women but not exclusively.

Her newest article is

The under-appreciated joy of making a meat loaf | Heart Sisters

I have permission to post this, but it may be too long. But the last paragraph is funny and I'll put that here:


" YET ANOTHER NOTE FROM CAROLYN to my vegetarian/animal-loving friends: Please do NOT send me any tofu/nut/seed/soy/lentil alternative recipes for your I-Canít Believe-Itís-Not-Meat-Loaf. When I feel nostalgic for my motherís meat loaf, I am NOT craving anything but the real thing. Thank you."

Thanks!

Thank you Cave for posting this link to my "meat loaf" post/recipe from HEART SISTERS today.

There seems to be a real affection and nostalgia for our mothers' homemade meat loaf memories in the kitchen - I'm loving my reader comments so far!

cheers,
C.

Carolyn! You found me!!!! Any members here that have had a heart attack or know of someone who has-----especially if a woman----- do not miss Carolyn web site. Another one, not related to the heart is one I thoroughly enjoy and I think others will also.

It's title is T
he Ethical Nag
"Marketing Ethics for the Easily Swayed"

The Ethical Nag | Marketing Ethics for the Easily Swayed

It will open naive eyes as to how the public is 'easily swayed'. My eyes weren't naive----- but to have examples put out there is refreshing.

Enjoy. Carolyn will always respond to your comments.

Hello Carolyn!!!

I had my heart attack Jan 9, 2011. I'm not convinced it was my diet that caused my MI, but from going from an active job to a sit down job...floor nurse to desk nurse.

This video is on the web site of Carolyn Thomas Heart Sisters

But I'll give the one from YouTube because it's easier to find.

https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...e+heart+attack

That video shows how women can ignore symptoms, esp. those who are involved in taking care of others. (PF?) It might be considered funny if it weren't too sad and too true.

That is very true, Cave. Turns out I had been having little heart attacks all day the day before and had three that woke me up during the night. The day of, I was sitting at the laptop looking up symptoms. Used the Web MD symptom checker and it came up with 3 possible reasons for my symptoms:
1. medication reaction
2. Panic attack
3. Heart attack

Told Shrek he better take me to the ER, we got dressed and he drove me. The Tech had just removed the EKG and was going out the door when I told him if they wanted to see what I was feeling it was happening again. That was the one that didn't stop and I could see Shrek in the corner crying, I kept trying to tell the nurse to take care of him and help him...when I woke up the Doc told, "Well young lady, you had a heart attack." When I woke up again I was in a room for the next 5 hours, for observation and make sure the angioplasty site was not bleeding.

Shrek and I stopped at the store to pick up dinner and I went to work the next day.

My symptoms were all on the right side of my body and were not classic chest pain.

Princess, your MI story is quite the adventure. And you went to work the next day. Love that!

FYI, interesting study on women in health care who do shift work (incl nurses, of course) found that 3/4 of those who have done shift work for more than 15 years have significantly higher risk for cardiovascular disease. More at: Why female shift workers may be at risk for heart disease | Heart Sisters

Other risk culprits are sleep disorders, pregnancy complications - and many many risk factors most of us are not familiar with.

And yes, Cave - I found you! My blog's stats page listed DiscussCooking as one of the top referring sites this morning so I thought I'd pop in and see what goes on over here! :-)

Makes a difference if it's an electrical or plumbing problem, with a stent, I felt better than I had for a long time immediately after the event. Also which part of the blood supply is blocked makes a difference, mine was the Circumflex and I have a 40% occlusion of the Left Coronary Artery.

Just read your Blog on shift workers, I was working bakeries before nursing and then went into night shift nursing. I worked night shift for 11.5 years then went to my current day shift position, spent mostly at a desk. I had my heart attack about 6 months after starting the day shift.
