Cardiologist, Vegan, Ultra-Marathon Runner and Ironman Triathlete.

Last Friday night, I had a vegan potluck Shabbat at my home. Most attendees were not vegans.
I baked a challah from a recipe for Post-Punk Kitchen.
We had lots of options - matzo ball soup (see my passover post from March for links to that recipe). We had a couscous salad, a big kale and tahini salad, lentils, vegan hot dogs, hummus and an Israeli salad. For dessert we had homemade chocolate coconut ice cream, cookies, and plenty of fruit.
I am an Interventional Cardiologist practicing in the Los Angeles area. I believe that lifestyle -- including diet and exercise -- are crucial parts of our health and well-being. Here, I share my insights on medicine, ideas and information about vegan diets, and my triathlon training adventures.
