Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in my family. Specifically among the men. My dad, my uncle and even my older half brother’s have all dealt with heart issues at an early age. Eating a heart healthy diet can make a huge difference in someone’s life.
I am thrilled to share that eMeals has introduced their first Heart Healthy plan, making it easy help the ones you love.
The new eMeals plan is designed for people who have or are at risk for heart disease, have high blood pressure or high cholesterol, or simply want to follow a heart-healthy diet as a preventive measure. Each week’s menu includes:
- Seven heart-healthy entrées with side dishes focusing on fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, poultry, fish and heart-healthy oils like olive and canola
- Calories plus grams of total fat, saturated fat, sodium, carbohydrate, fiber and protein for each entrée and side dish–including four meals with 50-60 grams of carbohydrate and three with 30-40 grams of carbohydrate
- Prep and cook times for each meal
- A once-a-week shopping list arranged by grocery aisle and usable at any grocery store
Total saturated fat in each meal is limited to 4.5 grams, while sodium is limited to 800 mg per meal with the help of lower-sodium and unsalted canned goods as well as by limiting processed foods and using salt-free seasoning options.
