On a recent shopping trip to Save Mart Supermarket, I was able to buy all ingredients necessary for a dinner that had heart health in mind. When you’re shopping or preparing your family meals….do you consider heart health? I’m on a mission to help OPEN your eyes and HELP you think about heart health when preparing your family meals.
If you haven’t read my bio or know me personally yet…then, let me introduce you to Sir Isaac.
This is our youngest son. He’s now six years old, but he’s had over 15 surgeries/procedures on his heart. He was born with his heart defect, so I have had to managed his heart health from birth. And…with all the tune ups that he’s had…you BETTER believe that I’m going to keep it as healthy as possible.
You don’t have to have a child with a heart problem to consider yours or your families heart health. Have you checked your blood pressure (I know that mine is gotten progressively higher over the years, as has my husbands)?
There are many ways that you can stay heart healthy, and your diet is one of the easiest ways.
With just a few ingredients….you can make a terrific dinner that everyone will love! You guys know that if I’m cooking…it’s going to be EASY! You can make these awesome chicken tacos that are NOT ONLY yummy, but a dinner that puts your heart health first.
- chicken (or turkey) fresh, frozen, baked, boiled (prepare it however you want to)
- wheat tortilla shells (mine were wheat and black bean)
- black beans
- Organic Girl greens (there are many variations, I used the baby spring mix)
Here’s a fun and delicious drink that you and the kids will LOVE! I call it my Raspberry Slush.
All you need to make this delicious slushy drink is the following:
- 7-up (diet is just fine to use)
- frozen can of pink lemonade
- frozen can of pineapple (or Hawaiian blend juice)
- 2 cups of ice
Throw it all in the blender and blend it up! Top it off with more fresh raspberries.
And there you have it…a heart healthy dinner that was easy to make, easy on your wallet, and full of nutritional goodies that your body will just gobble up!
If you were planning a Heart Health dinner…what would you prepare?? (that you and kids would actually eat?)
