Healthy Recipes And Healthy

Youve got the power in
your hands to prevent and overcome stroke, and the American
Heart Association has a new tool to help.
Healthy Soul Food Recipes will be available at
supermarket checkout stands for $3.99 on May 3, and on shoppower.org
beginning May 17, while supplies last.
The 96-page magazine is part of Power To End Stroke, an American
Heart Association/American Stroke Association education and
awareness campaign that embraces and celebrates the culture,
energy, creativity and lifestyles of African-Americans. Research
shows that African-Americans are at a greater risk for stroke
compared to other ethnic groups.
Healthy Soul Food Recipes serves up 47 easy-to-follow,
heart-healthy recipes of traditional African-American soul
food dishes that are usually considered unhealthy. The dishes,
including Old-Fashioned Vegetable Barley Soup, Zesty Three-Bean
Salad, Crab Cakes and Blackberry-Pear Crisp, meet the American
Heart Associations dietary recommendations.
This magazine cookbook not only offers dozens of delicious
recipes and colorful photos but also cooking tips, nutrition
information, a personal stroke risk checklist and tracking
logs to record your weight, physical activity, blood pressure,
cholesterol and glucose. Eating a healthy diet and getting
regular physical activity may help improve these health factors,
and reduce your risk for having a stroke.
Healthy Soul Food Recipes also features two national
ambassadors for Power To End Stroke: Juaquin Hawkins, former
professional basketball player, shares how he suffered a career-ending
stroke; and Cissy Houston, Grammy Award-winning American soul
and gospel singer and mother to Whitney Houston, recalls losing
her mother to a stroke when Cissy was only 5 years old. Through
their personal stories with stroke, they are helping to spread
the messages of the campaign.

Power To End Stroke is nationally sponsored by the Bristol-Myers
Squibb/Sanofi Pharmaceuticals Partnership.
