Eating enough fruits and vegetables and avoiding processed foods is still the toughest challenge for those at risk for high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. In its newest cookbook, the American Heart Association encourages readers to get out of the middle of the grocery store and start shopping the perimeter with 250 recipes for packing more nutritious fare into their diets.
This comprehensive collection will help readers achieve a balanced diet for optimal cardiovascular health with time-saver recipes as well as information on shopping and storing fresh produce, cutting prep time in the kitchen, and cultivating good eating habits. The more home cooks include minimally processed, "fresh off the vine" food in their diets, the easier it is for them to meet the American Heart Association's recommendations for good nutrition and achieve a heart-healthy lifestyle.
