Tips for a heart-healthy Valentine’s Day!

vdayIn honor of National Heart Month, here’s some heart-healthy Valentine’s Day tips:

1. There’s nothing better than spending quality time with your loved one doing something active such as sledding (if we still have snow) or ice skating.

2. Controlling the amount of food you eat is easier to do at home – take your love to a cooking class or try out a new recipe. Check out our healthy recipes here.

3. If you’re going to go out tonight, share an entree – there’s usually more than enough for 2!

4. Give a hug! Hugging has been shown to lower levels of cortisol and lower blood pressure in both men and women.
