February is American Heart Month – a time to raise awareness about heart disease and living a healthy lifestyle. Â As a company that feed families each and every day, it’s an important time for us to spread the word about the value of good nutrition in preventing heart disease. Â Our commitment to heart health can be found throughout all of our stores:
- February’s menuÂ offers 9 heart healthy meals
While we always offer healthy choices on our menu, our food development team has put together a menu full of 9 heart healthy meals this month! Â With tasty and nutritious dishes such as Rosemary and Mustard Grilled Sirloin Steaks and Moroccan Chicken with Couscous, we’re making it easy to fight heart disease one dilicious bite at a time!
- National Wear Red Day – 10% of Ready Made sales donated to the American Heart Association
In honor of National Wear Red Day on February 5th, we’re swapping our orange for red (you should, too!), and donating 10% of allÂ Ready MadeÂ sales to the American Heart Association. Â A healthy dinner and a donation – what a perfect way to show your support for the fight against heart disease!
Our blog is also a great resource to learn more about heart health. Â Just click “Heart Health” or “Healthy Living” under “Topics We Discuss” for past posts, includingÂ tips from an AHA nutritionist,Â heartfelt stories from our staff members affected by the diseaseÂ and much, much more! Â One of my particular favorites is titledÂ “To Your Health”Â - a post from our food guru, Holly, about how Let’s Dish! makes it easier to live a healthy lifestyle.
Cheers to eating right, and to a happy, healthy heart!
