A heart-healthy diet can help reduce your risk for heart disease and stroke. But you don’t have to sacrifice taste or flavor to make your foods healthier! During National Nutrition Month® 2016, Million Hearts® will share resources, recipes, and tips on how to make heart-healthy versions of your favorite meals and snacks. Share your heart-healthy nutrition information and resources with your audiences, too. Below are a few ways to get started.
