10 Heart Healthy Recipes for Men's Health

Ten heart-healthy recipes for #menshealth

Men, especially when young, think they’re invincible and don’t have to worry about heart health because they’re active. But statistics suggest otherwise: cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the number one killer of U.S. men. Men have a higher incidence of CVD than women and tend to experience their first cardiac event earlier. 

For #menshealth month, have created a recipe round-up of #betterforyou recipes that men will love. Each recipe is made with canola oil, which has the least saturated fat and most omega-3 fat of all the common cooking oils.  In fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration authorized a qualified health claim for canola oil on its potential to reduce the risk of heart disease when used in place of saturated fat.

We hope these recipes will encourage men to cook with some of their favorite ingredients in a heart-healthier way.
