Hey all! Happy February! February is everything RED and HEARTS!
Of course, we all know its Valentine’s Day, but it is also Heart Health Month! This is the perfect time to learn about how to eat a heart healthy diet, not only if you have heart disease or are at risk for it, but this would be a healthy diet for the general population. It is full of whole grains, healthy fats, lean protein and lots of fruits and veggies! Be sure to limit the salt and added sugar as well! Oh, and did I say dark chocolate was allowed? Make sure it’s at least 72% cocoa and to receive the additional health benefits you only need 1 oz. per day! Everything in moderation and proper portion 😉
Check out our fabulous handouts listed below… they can be found on our website! Be sure to specifically look at our 8-week dietitian approved menu -that will put all these guidelines and recommendations into tasty and heart healthy meal and snack solutions! If you have any questions, want to meet with one of our supermarket dietitians in your area, or go on a tour to find these better for you options, you know where to find us!
Be sure to tune into our Facebook Live videos every Tuesday for “Healthy Tip Tuesday” brought to you by our team of Supermarket Registered Dietitian’s that will be sharing heart health tips ALL month long! Be sure to comment on our videos with your questions!
Peace and Wellness,
