Introducing the FH Family Cookbook

the Family Heart Foundation is pleased to introduce the FH Family Cookbook, a collection of favorite heart healthy recipes from the Familial Hypercholesterolemia Community. The result of an amazing FH Community effort, recipes were contributed by individuals with FH, their family and friends, as well as dedicated healthcare professionals who treat FH.

While there is no “FH diet,” a low-fat heart healthy diet is recommended for individuals with FH. All recipes in the cookbook are 20% fat or less and have been reviewed by a dietician.

Cookbooks can be ordered here with all proceeds from the sale supporting research, advocacy and education for families with FH.

We will share recipes often and would love to hear your feedback!
