Did you know that eating meals away from home accounts for about half the money Americans spend on food? Meals on the go can be hard on your heart, because many prepared and restaurant foods have a lot of added salt. Cooking at home more often is a great way to start lowering the sodium you get.
Cooking at home requires a little bit of know-how, and the American Heart Association has terrific resources to help. With simple, nutritious recipes, the American Heart Association can help put you at ease in the kitchen.
