Diet, Recipes, meal plans for CHF

My husband has been recently diagnosed with CHF.  He is coming home from the hospital tomorrow and I need to make some radical changes to his diet.  Primarily very low sodium and low fat.  Anybody have any good sources for recipes and meal plans for CHF?

Hi,
     Diet changes that need to be made in congestive heart failure are limiting salt and water and avoiding bad fats. Fats like trans fat, saturated or hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated fats should be completely avoided in diet. Drinking alcohol should be totally or severely restricted as this can worsen symptoms of congestive heart failure. Hope this helps. Best.
