Give a Little Love

When you’re thinking about dinner, how often do you think about your hard-working heart? Don’t take it for granted. Give it a little love with heart-healthy and delicious recipes.

Our hearts—we talk about them in so many ways: a kind and loving friend has a “heart of gold” while a mean-spirited enemy might have a “heart of stone.” Your heart might leap when you’re excited, it may melt when you’re in love, or it can sink when you’re discouraged. But many of us seldom think about our hard-working heart—quietly beating with regularity to pump life-giving blood throughout our bodies. We take it for granted. We assume it will simply keep on ticking— and we rarely take notice. Our hearts beat anywhere from about 60 to 100 times per minute. Based on an average of 80 beats per minute, your heart would beat about 4,800 times per hour. That’s a whopping 115,200 times per day. Over the course of a year, your heart would beat about 42,048,000 times. That’s a lot of ticking to take for granted! But it would do our hearts good to think about them from time to time, say when we’re contemplating our next meal. Take heart! Because we always have your best interests at heart, we’ve developed a collection of delicious, heart-healthy recipes that are sure to gladden your heart!
