In this edition, we’re serving up a full day’s worth of healthy recipes, from breakfast to an after-dinner treat. Give these recipes a spin. Your heart (and your taste buds) will thank you! Check ‘em out!
Kale Berry Smoothie: Start your day off right with a breakfast that’s good for your heart and gives you the energy you need to seize the day. Kale is chock full of vitamin K, which is critical for a healthy heart. Berries are also rich in antioxidants like anthocyanins, which protect against the oxidative stress and inflammation that contribute to the development of heart disease.
Turkey Avocado Wrap: When it comes to heart health, avocado is a downright super food that gets star treatment in this lunchtime delight! For an even healthier midday dish, reach for the whole wheat wrap.
Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa: These tacos offer up dinner done right. Fish is great for its omega-3 fatty acids, which the body doesn’t produce on its own and are very good for your heart. The leafy greens and bonus helping of avocado add extra benefits – and flavor!
Almond Kale Bundt Cake: Treat yourself to a delicious dose of heart health with this dessert that incorporates kale, almonds and berries in the journey toward even better cardiovascular health.
That’s a full day’s worth of tasty recipes that are good for your heart! Learn more about ways to protect and nurture your heart by visiting the American Heart Month website.
