Cooking for Your Heart

Healthy cooking that is good for your heart and good for your taste buds.*

What do you think of when you hear the words, “heart-healthy diet?” Is it bland, tasteless food? Well, think again! Adopting a heart-healthy diet is an important step to reducing your risk for coronary artery disease (CAD), the most common type of heart disease and the leading cause of death in the United States in both men and women.1

* Some of the recipes may not be right for everyone. You may want to talk to your doctor before making any changes to your diet. You should follow your doctor’s guidelines or dietary restrictions for heart disease.
