A dozen delicious heart-healthy diabetes friendly recipes everyone will love!

Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death around the world and people with diabetes are especially at risk – more than 65% (2 out of 3) die from these afflictions. Heart attacks also occur earlier in life with diabetes.

A healthy heart is a happy heart and taking care of your heart is one of the most important things you can do for your health.  Eating and cooking and following a heart-healthy diet is the key.  It significantly affects your risk and management of chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cancer.

We know that small changes can make a big difference. One small change to make is having canola oil in your kitchen.  It’s the all-in-one oil that can be used for just about any cooking application as far as fats and oils are concerned.  Plus you can’t get more heart-smart. Canola oil has the least saturated fat of all common culinary oils and is free of trans fat and cholesterol.
