It may sound silly, but for all the work our hearts do, we often don’t show them much love. After all, the heart is the one muscle that never stops pumping, even while we sleep.

 

One easy way to give our heart the respect (and the fuel) it needs to keep working well is to eat a diet full of heart-healthy foods; things that are low in sodium, low in fat, and full of protein, iron, and vitamins. Low calorie, too!

From grilled salmon tacos to a chicken stir-fry with cashews, these dishes are sure to satisfy even the most discriminating appetites.

 

In fact, these heart-healthy dinners are so tasty and so good for you, don’t be surprised if you find your pulse quickening as you prepare each recipe. So go ahead, eat to your heart’s content — literally!

This vegetarian salad is as beautiful as it is flavorful. Spicy curry powder is a delicious compliment to the sweetness of carrots and dried cranberries and the nutty flavor of the quinoa.

Instead of red meat, let heart-healthy garbanzo beans provide the flavor and protein to your pasta sauce. We love the Mediterranean-inspired flavors of feta, tomatoes, and rosemary in this dish.

 

 

 

Bloody Mary Steak

Grilled fish tacos are a delicious variation on a Mexican staple. If you like spicy, feel free to add more chile powder to your fish before you grill it.
