If it’s true what they say, and breakfast really is the most important meal of the day, then we better start making the most of this crucial meal. These are some of my favorite heart-smart breakfast recipes from Prevention.com.

Yesterday I shared 4 Recipes for a Healthy Heart with all of you. I hope that the post proved that heart-healthy eating doesn’t have to be one flavorless meal after another. If anything, taking the time to choose ingredients that are better for your heart makes eating the meals you prepare that much more enjoyable because you know you won’t regret it later.
That being said, which part of a meal should always be enjoyed and never regretted? Desserts, of course! Here are a few recipes I found at Health.com for some heart-healthy desserts.
Check out the full list of heart-healthy dessert recipes at Health.com, and then meet me back here tomorrow!
Have a sweet week!
Gardening has and always will be my passion, however, even stronger than my love for gardening is the love I have for this man right here.
Recent events concerning my husband’s health have inspired me to share some heart healthy recipes instead of my usual garden-related posts. The last few weeks have been difficult, to say the least, but Tommy’s recovery has been nothing short of miraculous. A healthy heart is so important, which is why we want to start taking better care of ours.
I hope our story–(which I plan to share in full detail later on)–will inspire you to evaluate your own health. Simply changing your diet can make all the difference. Be sure to visit Real Simple for their complete list of heart-healthy meals, and then check back here tomorrow for even more recipes as well.
Have a great week!
