Heart Healthy Month and Eat Red Berries

More than 50 years ago President Johnson declared February cardiovascular health month at a time when heart disease was viewed as largely a man's disease. We now know heart disease knows no gender. Wearing red in February is now a means for women to heighten awareness of heart health for everyone. Why stop there? Eat red in February — including Sun Belle raspberries, strawberries and currants — to put into practice the healthy eating associated with reducing the risk of heart disease. Enjoy red berries out of hand or in your favorite smoothie, salad or favorite desert. Click on recipes for additional heart healthy recipes from the kitchens of Sun Belle.
