If you read my blogs regularly, you may remember that my husband has high blood pressure, a risk factor for heart disease. (He was diagnosed when he was in his early twenties.)
But there are things we can—and should—do, even at a young age, to prevent heart disease later in life. For Dan and me it means doing our best to control his high blood pressure now, through what we eat, among other things, so it won’t lead to more serious heart problems down the road. (For more information on keeping your heart as healthy as it can be, including recipes for healthy blood pressure, check out our Heart Health Center.)
Luckily, there are some really easy things we can all do to make the recipes we love heart-healthier. Here are a few of my favorite tricks and recipes for making heart-healthy recipes at home.
