Good Food for a Healthy Heart + 185 delicious recipies pdf
Eat well, live longer. How many times have you heard that? Of course you want to eat healthfully, limit saturated fats, add more vegetables and grains, and not overdo the salt… but if this equation doesn’t add up to delicious food, your family won’t get onboard. So how to do it? Good Housekeeping Good Food for a Healthy Heart book pdf + 185 delicious recipies . There are so many options—and on many days, so little time. In this book, we’ve gathered our favorite recipes that are naturally full of good-for-you ingredients, are easy and quick to prepare, and will pass the family’s deliciousness test.
”My kids won’t eat their veggies,” “My partner wants red meat at every meal,” and “Do I really have to give up brownies?” are just a few of the comments we’ ve gotten from readers. Filled with smart dietary tips and 185 great-tasting recipes—all low in calories, saturated, fat, and sodium, Good Food for a Healthy Heart is our solution.
We open with simple heart-healthy changes you can make right now. These include suggestions like “eat more vegetables and fruits” (our antioxidant-rich fruit smoothies and vegetarian mains like Broccoli Pesto Pasta make this easy). Dinners like Five-Spice Pork with Gingered Vegetables (and a side of bulgur) will help you reduce the role of meat from star to supporting player. To help your family get their omega-3s, serve oily fish like salmon twice a week (our Ginger-Crusted Salmon with Melon Salsa has been known to convert even reluctant fish eaters).
Blueberries, avocados, nuts, and, yes, dark chocolate, are among the superfoods we discuss on page xvi. Enjoy them in Whole-Grain Blueberry Muffins and Sweet Chipotle Chicken, which stacks spicy chicken cutlets with avocado and tomato slices. We also offer ideas on how to trade “bad” fats for “good” ones and reduce sodium (for starters, look for reduced-sodium canned foods and condiments).
Throughout the book, Good Housekeeping Good Food for a Healthy Heart book pdf + 185 delicious recipies , we share winning recipes from our Cook Your Heart Out contests. These scrumptious recipes—from Tropical Citrus Shrimp to Apple-Berry Hand Pies—were all developed by readers just like you, who are making an effort to prepare heart-healthy meals for the ones they love.
