Inspiration for Easy Heart Healthy Meals

So everything around our house is about heart healthy right now.  Ellie was playing Rapunzel the other day, like when isn't she playing Rapunzel, and she made a heart healthy pie for Flynn.

So for my friend who is struggling to find delicious, easy and heart healthy meals here are some ideas from our recent dinners.  There is always some fruit on the side but we don't always photograph it so use your imagination.  Right now we are getting so many nice summer fruits.  Last night we ate a whole watermelon with dinner.  This morning a bowl full of peaches.
