Love is in the air this month at Feet First Foot Care Specialists, we are excited to be celebrating Valentine's Day and American Heart Month. We wholeheartedly believe living a healthy lifestyle can be simple, tasteful, and fun! Cooking more meals at home allows everyone in the family to build better eating habits. Plus, it is a great way to say “I love you” to someone special. Healthy meals are known to promote emotional balance, nourish the heart, and improve podiatric health. Below are a few heartfelt recipes and activities for you to share with your loved ones.
These are just a few delicious and easy recipes that you can find on the American Heart Association website. A quick and effortless way to enhance dishes is to add fresh vegetables, fruits, and herbs while limiting sugar, sodium, and processed foods. Turn your kitchen into a romantic, five-star restaurant and cook up a delicious recipe together!
The American Heart Association recommends adults get 150 active minutes a week. Swelling, feeling cold, hair loss, or cramping in your feet and legs can be a potential indication of heart disease. Several medical conditions are linked to heart diseases, such as diabetes and high blood pressure. Stress is one factor that may increase your risk for high blood pressure. Make regular physical activity fun and sign up for a new dance class or take a winter walk around your favorite park. Relieve stress with an online meditation class or a couple’s foot massage!
