Dietitian’s Dish Tip(s):
> Treat your heart well with the rich flavors in these recipes. Salmon and almonds provide omega-3 fats that help reduce blood pressure and prevent blood clots. The sweet addition of strawberries offers folate, which protects the heart and vascular system by widening arteries to prevent plaque build-up.
