  • Choose whole grains.
  • Opt for low-fat dairy.
  • Enjoy poultry and lean protein options.
  • Eat fish twice per week.

A meal plan can help you plan, shop for, and cook simple, heart-healthy meals your whole family will enjoy every night of the week. Our new Heart Healthy Meal Plan does all the planning for you, providing seven family-friendly meals with a corresponding shopping list and nutrition information.

Created by Registered Dietitians in accordance with the American Heart Association recommendations, this plan is designed for people who have or are at risk for heart disease, have high blood pressure or high cholesterol, or simply want to follow a heart-healthy diet as a preventive measure. We provide the calories plus grams of total fat, saturated fat, sodium, carbohydrate, fiber and protein for each entrée and side dish–including four meals with 50-60 grams of carbohydrate and three with 30-40 grams of carbohydrate.

      The new Heart Healthy meal plan does coordinate to the DASH Diet guidelines. We limit the sodium in each meal to 800 mg (or 1/3 of the daily total limit) and keeps saturated fat to 4.5 grams or less, which corresponds to the DASH recommendation of 6% of calories based on a 2,000 calorie diet.
