Holiday Cooking for the Heart
(Family Features) - The holiday season has always been a time for
celebration, togetherness and most of all, indulgent eating. However,
with heart disease as the leading cause of death in the U.S. and about
24 million Americans with diabetes, a healthier take on holiday meals
could benefit everyone.
Cheryl Forberg, R.D., consulting dietitian to NBC-TV's "The
Biggest Loser," The New York Times best-selling author and James Beard
award-winning recipe developer, has partnered with CanolaInfo to create
a heart-smart, diabetes-friendly holiday recipe collection that allows
people to have their cake (or pumpkin flan) and eat it, too.
"A diabetes-friendly diet is really how everyone should eat,"
Forberg says. "That's because heart disease and type 2 diabetes are
largely preventable with a good diet, exercise and other healthy
habits. These recipes prove that nutritious is delicious. Now that's
something to celebrate during the holidays!"
As a common ingredient in Forberg's six holiday recipes,
canola oil delivers on heart health. It has the least saturated fat and
most omega-3 fat of all cooking oils and is free of trans fat and
cholesterol. 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, which affects 65 percent of people with
Forberg's diabetes-friendly holiday recipe collection includes
these three recipes plus Warm Apple and Cranberry Sauce, Holiday Rapini
Sauté and Pumpkin Flan. For the complete collection, go to www.canolainfo.org.
Did You Know? Heart disease and type 2 diabetes are preventable the
majority of the time.
