If you don't have any problems with wheat gluten or any wheat products then you should eat Morningstar Farms Grillers Vegan and Boca burgers. They are made out of wheat gluten and soy protein and its the closest thing to a hamburger to can eat if you have heart disease. Don't eat their other products because they have saturated fat and sometimes some cholesterol and of course they taste way better. They don't cook like real hamburgers so put 2 in a microwave and cook them for 2 mins. The middle is only cooked if the sides get hard and you have to cut them off. Put them in a hamburger bun and drown them in ketchup and mustard to cover up the taste.

Eating Right for Your Disease

The World's Healthiest Foods

No cholesterol
No saturated fat [increases cholesterol more then dietary cholesterol]
No trans fat
No meat or cheese
No fried rice
No french fries or hash browns
No eggs
No mashed potatoes and gravy
No biscuits [especially buttermilk]
No junk food
Low or no sodium
No milk
No rice-a-roni or uncle bens
No garlic bread
No butter or margerine

No coca cola or soft drinks [high fructose corn syrup makes cholesterol sky rocket and the phosphoric acid thins your bones. I think coca-cola should be illegal and all 10% juice garbage that are full of high fructose corn syrup.
Coca-cola is one of the reasons why this country is full of fat and unhealthy people. F*cking McDonalds.

Only drink 100% fruit juice and V8 low sodium
baked potatoes with no butter, margerine or salt [only add pepper or fresh chives]

Seedless grapes!!!! [http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=40]
Subs with no meat
Salads with no dressing
Vegetables with no added salt or melted cheese
Plain white rice with nothing on it

Spaghetti with EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL and sauce with no meatballs
Extra virgin olive oil has more poly and monounsaturated fats then anything and these lower the bad LDL cholesterol and raise the good HDL cholesterol.

Huge amounts of vitamin C, vitamin E [don't overdose on vitamin E]
Vitamin A
other antioxidants
green tea extract
Swanson cardio complex [awesome]
Large B vitamin pill

and Swanson super cayenne:

Cardiovascular Benefits

Cayenne and other red chili peppers have been shown to reduce blood cholesterol, triglyceride levels, and platelet aggregation, *****while increasing the body's ability to dissolve fibrin, a substance integral to the formation of blood clots.***** Cultures where hot peppers like cayenne are used liberally have a much lower rate of heart attack, stroke and pulmonary embolism.

To much to paste here.

Arterial plaque is, in essence a form of scab that forms on wounded arteries to protect us from internal hemorrhaging. What causes wounded arteries? One cause is free radicals, which can be combatted by antioxidants. But a second major cause of arterial wounding -- and arterial plaque -- was discovered by the author of this book, Dr. Kilmer McCully: elevated concentrations in the blood of a chemical called homocysteine. Homocysteine is a natural product of the metabolism af an amino acid called methionine and, therefore, our body's always contain some homocysteine. Vitamins B6, B12, and folic acid keep blood concentrations of homocysteine low enough to be safe. But deficiency of these vitamins can allow homocysteine to build up to concentrations that can wound our arteries and lead to the formation of arterial plaque -- which can eventually trigger a heart attack. Recent research has confirmed Dr. McCully's findings. If you want to understand the role of homocysteine in causing cardiovascular disease and resultant heart attacks -- and learn how to protect yourself from them -- I strongly suggest that you acquire and read this valuable book.
