Nutrition - Internet Resources and Recipes
Here are some of my favourite sites on the internet for dietary information and heart healthy recipes. Don’t overwhelm yourself. Look for recipes that include heart healthy food ingredients that can easily be incorporated into your menu (fish, legumes, whole grains, vegetables etc.). Tackle one or two new additions at a time, then put it into action. Add the ingredients you require to your grocery list. Don’t wait to try something new… after all New Recipes are the Spice of Life.
