Sally Bee

Sally Bee is a writer and TV cook who is passionate about creating healthy recipes that the whole family can enjoy. We’re lucky to have her as an ambassador, not only for us here at Albert Bartlett, but for healthy living too.

At the young age of 36, Sally suffered three heart attacks and doctors told her husband it was time to say goodbye. However, she made a miraculous recovery and it was this which triggered her love for healthy food. She has written a cookbook featuring her favourite healthy recipes – now a best seller, and used in the kitchen of The White House! Here’s her story in her own words.

“When I was sent home from hospital after the attacks I was given no positive prognosis for survival at all. I had three young children at home under five years old and mealtimes became so precious. When you think every mealtime with your children may be your last it’s no surprise how important they become. I also realised very early on that the food I ate affected my health. I ate a Chinese takeaway meal and got admitted back into hospital because the chemicals (MSG) had caused my heart to go into an abnormal rhythm. But when I ate a nutritious and balanced meal with vegetables, potatoes and a little chicken or fish, I found I had a little more energy to walk out to the gate and back. I realised that eating a healthy diet wasn’t about counting calories or just living off green stuff; my body was reacting in a positive to the good nutrients I was feeding it.”
