Hello friends and welcome to Good for the Soul Soulfood Sunday, a kickoff to the celebration of National Wear Red Day on Friday, February 6th.
Did you know that 1 in 3 women die of heart disease and stroke each year? This is an unacceptable statistic that should concern us all because it’s preventable with the proper diet and exercise. This week, fellow blogger Robin @ RobinCharmagne and I have teamed up to bring awareness to heart disease and women beginning today with a heart healthy recipe.
My heart healthy Soulfood Recipe is a Slow Cooked Lite Creamy Asparagus Soup using low sodium chicken broth and coconut milk.
Soup on a cold winter day is good for the soul and lowering your sodium intake is good for the heart. Lowering your sodium intake helps to prevent increased risks for stroke, heart failure, osteoporosis, stomach cancer and kidney disease.
Will you commit to eating healthier for a healthier heart?
On Friday we are hosting a link party and hope that you’ll come back and link up your “Wear Red for Women” OOTD.
