When it comes to preventing heart disease through diet, there’s quite a bit you can do—and a lot to remember.
The D&W dietitian, in partnership with EatingWell's nutrition editors, have done much of the work for you by creating a selection of tasty, heart healthy recipes. To be called “heart healthy” our entrees have no more than 3 grams of saturated fat. Fish entrees can have up to 5 grams, since the benefits of omega-3 fats outweigh the saturated fats.
Our heart healthy sides, salads, soups and desserts have 2 grams or less of saturated fat. All recipes in this collection qualify as heart healthy. Most feature brightly colored fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts or soy products—foods containing antioxidants and fiber, which also may help your heart. So enjoy these delicious Heart Healthy Recipes for a Healthy Heart Cookbook—and add in a good dose of daily exercise—and you’ll be on your way to a healthier lifestyle!
