My Dad recently had a heart attack scare (VERY scary, but I'm very thankful it wasn't worse) and he's pretty fit (goes for a jog daily) but his eating habits could use some improvement... he's a big fan of excessive snacking, and could use healthier food habits (i.e. tends to buy high-sodium frozen vegetables, packaged cookies that are fairly high in saturated fat, etc) so for Christmas I'm looking to get him some cooking gadgets to make heart-healthy eating more fun/tasty and convenient. I'm thinking maybe a steamer? But that's not too exciting, so any ideas are welcome!
For reference: He does some cooking himself, but ideally it should be relatively simple & low maintenance to clean. He generally eats fish & some red meat, but doesn't like pork or chicken much.
As a side note, if anyone has healthy recipe ideas or even heart-healthy pre-bought snacks they'd recommend, I'd be grateful for those, too. Thanks!
