February is perhaps best known for the greeting card holiday that falls mid-month, but the entire month is actually dedicated to heart health, and that deserves more attention! Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. A lot of what damages your heart has to do with what you eat. So here you have a heart healthy recipe that you can enjoy solo or with your sweetheart!
What makes it heart healthy? The avocado is high monounsaturated fat, the healthy fat that lowers cholesterol. Avocados are also high in antioxidants and potassium!
To make it even more heart health, top it with some blueberries. Blueberries are full of antioxidants like flavonoids and anthocyanin, that can decrease blood pressure and dilate blood vessels. Pomegranates are also great and filled with antioxidants that may help stave off hardening of arteries. However you choose to make it, enjoy this delicious dessert and help you heart at the same time!
