Learn more about heart disease in women at the National Heart and Lung Institute.

Heart Healthy Tip: 
This one I do all the time. Remove fat from homemade broths, soups, and stews by preparing them ahead and chilling them. Before reheating the dish, lift off the hardened fat that formed at the surface.

Heart Healthy Recipe:   NOTE:  I add sliced red or green seedless grapes to my chicken salad.
Chicken Salad:

3 1/4 C chicken, cooked, cubed, skinless
1/4 C celery, chopped
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp salt*
3 Tbsp mayonnaise, lowfat
*Reduce sodium by removing the 1/8 tsp of added salt. New sodium content for each
serving is 127 mg.

1. Bake chicken, cut into cubes, and refrigerate.

2. In large bowl, combine rest of ingredients, add chilled chicken and mix well.
