Yesterday I gave a cooking demonstration to a group of seniors in Sacramento called Heart Healthy Cooking for One. The recipes were so popular, easy to make, and delicious, that I thought I would share them on my blog! Each recipe takes 5 minutes or less to prepare, so it’s perfect for when you want to whip up a quick and healthy breakfast or lunch for yourself. There is also a convenient vegetable cooking chart for the microwave at the end. Check them out, in easy printable format: 5 Meals in 5 Minutes or Less.
These recipes are all easily prepared using a George Foreman grill and a microwave. If you don’t have a George Foreman grill, you can use a skillet on the stove. But, I highly recommend a George Foreman grill because they are so easy to use! I just use a small one that costs less than $20 at Walmart or Target.
All of these recipes are very heart healthy. The characteristics of a heart healthy meal are:
- Low in fat (especially saturated and trans fat)
- Low in sodium
- High in fiber
Heart disease is currently the #1 killer in America. But, 80% of heart disease is preventable through healthy lifestyle choices! So, I hope you enjoy these delicious heart healthy recipes!
