RECIPES: Sweet & Nutty Stir-Fry. Take-a-Break Snack Mix

by Rae Udy

February is American Heart Month, according to the American Heart Association. During the month, their goal is to raise funds for heart research and to provide education about heart disease and stroke.
Heart disease is the number one killer of American men and women. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, about every 25 seconds an American will have a coronary event.
Some heart attacks are sudden and intense, but, according to the CDC website, http://cdc.gov/Features/HeartMonth/, most start slowly with mild pain.
Chest discomfort in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back is one sign a heart attack may be happening. Other symptoms include pain and discomfort in other areas of the upper body, such as, one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.
Shortness of breath, breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or light-headedness are more warnings of heart problems.
The AHA, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, the American Red Cross and the National Council of Aging urge people to know the signs of a heart attack and know the importance of calling 911 immediately at the onset of symptoms.
The AHA recommends eating a wide variety of nutritious foods daily. Fresh fruit and vegetables, fiber-rich grains, nuts, legumes and seeds are smart food choices that will benefit your long-term heart health.
These recipes are just two of the many offered on the AHA website, heart.org. Main dish Sweet & Nutty Stir-Fry is light and filling at the same time and Take-a-Break Snack Mix is fun to have on hand anytime.
