Eat Your Heart Out

Heart Smart Recipes

Small changes can have a big impact on your health — like drinking more water, taking the stairs instead of the escalator and adding heart smart staples (like a bag of pecans!) to your grocery list.

American Pecans are certified with the American Heart Association’s Heart-Check, and their unique mix of unsaturated fats, plant sterols, fiber and flavonoids add up to help promote a healthy heart.*

The recipes in this meal plan call for heart-smart ingredients like salmon, quinoa, kale, tart cherries — and of course, pecans. So go ahead and eat your heart out: you’ll feel good about enjoying these tasty, wholesome meals.

Take the stress out of busy weeknights with these quick recipes. And if you’re craving even more pecans (we get it!), sprinkle them on top of your morning yogurt or lunchtime salad.

*According to the Food and Drug Administration, research suggests but does not prove that eating 1 1/2 ounces of most nuts, such as pecans, each day as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may help reduce your risk of heart disease. One serving of pecans (28 grams) contains 18 grams unsaturated fat and only 2 grams saturated fat.
