Heart Healthy Recipes - What Makes
A Recipe Healthy For The Heart?

So what exactly is a heart healthy recipe? First, you should know that foods low in saturated fats, cholesterol, and high on fiber are good for your heart's health. So when you're searching for heart healthy recipes, look for recipes that contain low saturated fat, and low cholesterol.

A healthy heart recipe should also contain other essential nutrients such as fiber, vitamins, and minerals. These heart healthy nutrients can be found in vegetables, grains, and fruits. Avoid using foods high in fat content. If possible, use low fat versions for a healthy heart recipe meal. ^__^

It can be tough looking for recipes that are healthy for you heart, so I've prepared two very delicious heart healthy recipes here for you, and you can be sure that there will be more to come soon. :) You can also find many more delicious and healthy recipes here.
