Heart Healthy Success with Meal Planning & Preparation- Easy Roasted Vegetable Batch Cooking Recipe

By Mary C. Johnson, Dietetic Intern Roasted vegetables-2

In our fast-paced lives, we demand meals on-the-go and often reach for the quickest options available. This most often involves purchasing pre-packaged or fast-food meals which are typically higher in sodium and saturated fat which are detrimental to our heart health. These quick options are also lower in fiber and phytochemicals (cancer fighting compounds found in the color of the food) that are found in plant-based foods which are important for our overall health. Optimizing your diet to include plant-based foods is a surefire way to increase the nutrient density of your diet and maximize your disease fighting potential. Spending time planning and preparing your meals each week is one of the best ways to ensure diet success for heart health. Here are a few easy tips to get you started in quick meal planning and preparation that you can start to incorporate into your routine.

Healthy Holiday Recipe: AFRICAN ALMOND STEW

By Eric C. Sharer, MPH, RD, CSO, CDN Vegetabel soup

Soups and stews can be a healthy addition to any holiday celebration. Be sure to use plenty of plant-based foods to maximize the nutrition of your meal. Soups and stews are a great way to increase your vegetable, starchy vegetable, legume, and even grain intake. Any mediocre soup or stew can become an amazing one with the addition of a simple thickener. Thicken soups/stews with nut/seed/peanut butter, pureed beans, or even pureed orange starchy vegetable such as pumpkin/butternut squash. Try this delicious stew which is thickened with almond butter. If avoiding nuts, use any of the other aforementioned foods as an alternative.
