Christine’s suggestions for a Heart Healthy Valentine’s Day Dinner

1) Lean protein such as grilled beef tenderloin (the leanest cut of beef).

2) Quinoa with artichoke hearts and fresh parsley. Quinoa is a staple of the ancient Incas and means “the mother grain”. It’s high in iron and loaded with fiber (4 gm per ½ cup).

3) A small glass of seltzer water with a splash of pomegranate juice and twist of lime. This is better for you than diet soda or champagne and much more romantic looking to the eye when poured into a wine or champagne glass.

4) Chocolate raspberry brownies. These are my newest creation and are beyond blissful…they are chewy, gooey, chocolately with a unique burst of tart raspberry…so unique and heart healthy.
