A good friend's husband was just released from the hospital with a heart attack and congestive heart failure. She is asking for help in the form of meals. Of course, they just had a great scare and they are absolutely adhering to the no fat, no sodium instructions given by their medical team.
So what can I take that wont violate their dietary strictures but I won't feel terrible about taking to them, either? I'm thinking some veggie based main course but all the recipes I can think of have something forbidden. If fish wasn't so expensive I'd take that.
So far the only thing I've come up with is a frittata made with mostly egg white from my best pastured eggs, filled with veggies, and a big, hearty salad with lemon vinaigrette. Our grass fed meat would probably be great for him, it's exceptionally lean, but I'm sure he's been told to avoid red meat. I'll probably cook up a pot of bone broth and skim out all the fat, too.
Any other suggestions?

Oily fish, onions and garlic, dark green leafy vegetables, berries, apples, tea
Concentrate on anti-inflammatory foods, high in flavonoids etc
Also heart meat is very high in Co-enzyme Q10, which may be helpful
