Essentia Health Offers Virtual Cooking Demonstration

Jan 14, 2021 09:01AM ● By Med Magazine
Did you know that Super Bowl Sunday is America’s second largest day for food consumption,
surpassed only by Thanksgiving? Some of the top selling foods include pizza, chicken wings,
pretzels, potato chips and dips. Even with smaller gatherings anticipated this year, these
foods will be bought or ordered more than ever this year.
 
However, these popular convenience foods are packed with saturated fat and are over the
top in sodium. Fruits, vegetables, beans and whole grains are often missing from party buffets.
 
To help you plan a healthier option, Essentia Health is offering a virtual cooking demonstration
to patients and the public, free of charge.
 
The virtual cooking demonstration will focus on heart healthy pizza and soup in time for the
big game. Recipes shared after the demonstration include Italian pizza, margarita pizza, Italian
sausage with ground turkey, pizza sauce, pizza pasta soup, lower sodium potato chips,
hummus dip, lower sodium nuts and a fruit tray.
 
This event is perfect for anyone living with heart failure or interested in learning more about
living a heart healthy lifestyle. Funded by Essentia Health Foundation’s Heltne Endowment,
dedicated to the care of patients with heart failure.

You can register for this free virtual event at EssentiaHealth.org/HeartHealthyCooking.
