This month’s recipe is good for your heart!

Author: Dr. Michelle Durkin on 9 February 2021

One of my favourite healthy snacks is nuts or seeds with a couple squares of dark chocolate. I like to buy the 70% dark chocolate small squares at Costco or Lindt red pepper chili dark chocolate.

Why is this snack good for your heart?

Nuts and seeds have good fats, like omega 3, and protein while dark chocolate is an antioxidant. Both of these are good for your heart and circulation!

Here is an easy recipe with lots of flavour that just might become a new favourite.

Cinnamon Toasted Pecans
