Heart Health for You - Two

You probably know that heart disease is the number one cause of death among Americans, but do you really know how to stop from becoming a statistic yourself? The challenge of making heart healthy meals for empty-nesters is even greater given that so many recipes and meal plans are aimed at families of four or more. Cabot’s team of Registered Dietitians wants to make eating well easier with this 5-day menu plan tailored to the smaller family. So eat well and enjoy... your heart (and budget) will thank you!

Note: This menu plan is based on an 1800 calorie/day diet (50% Carbohydrate, 20% Protein, 30% Fat). Each complies with the DASH Diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) and provides the following Exchanges for Diabetes Meal Planning: 8 Starch, 8 Lean Meat, 4 Vegetable, 4 Fruit, 3 Low-Fat Milk and 4 Fat. Exchange calculations are based on the American Dietetic Association Choose Your Foods: Exchange Lists for Diabetes, 2007
