The Heart-Healthy Superfood
In February, we’re reminded just how important our heart health is for our overall well-being. From Heart Health Month to Valentine’s Day, our hearts are the star this time of year. A simple way to show your heart some love? Incorporate more heart-healthy foods into your diet!

Studies have shown that pulses improve blood sugar levels and reduce cholesterol and blood pressure. These simple ingredients are loaded with fiber and antioxidants (red kidney beans contain more antioxidants than blueberries or pomegranate juice), making them the ideal addition to meals in February.

Below you will find pulse-filled, heart-healthy recipes to enjoy this month. Bring on the superfoods!
