Good Cause Of The Month: The Happy Healthy Cook Book By Heart Research UK

For this month’s good cause I have teamed up with Heart Research UK. They asked me, if I can donate one of my recipes so they can create a recipe book. So together with other food bloggers and health experts we donated some recipes, to raise money and awareness. I naturally feel honoured, that a recipe of mine is being used for this good cause. This cookbook contains only heart-healthy recipes and  it is free to download. However, a small donation to Heart Research UK would be greatly appreciated, so they can carry on helping those people who are struggling with heart problems across the country. I have donated my Tricolour Quinoa Salad With Roasted Vegetables

What’s in the book?

You’ll find more than 40 heart-healthy recipes, starters and main meals. You’ll find a variety of cuisines and even if you are not an experienced cook, you’ll find some easy and healthy meal ideas. There are lots of vegetarian and vegan recipes in the book as well as meaty meal ideas. They have one thing in common: they are good for your heart! All of the recipes have been checked by Heart Research UK and follow their guidelines for a healthy heart, which include each meal being low fat, with no added salt and no added sugar. You wouldn’t know from the taste, though

  1. I’ve just written a post about heart health on my blog. As my dad has had two heart attacks its something that really interests me. This book looks great!

      I think it’s so common to have heart problems unfortunately. Everyone should take a good care of their heart.

  2. This sounds like a brilliant book. I lost my sister to heart disease at the age of 37 and I often wonder if diet was a contributing factor

  3. Heart disease runs in my husband’s side of the family and affects so many doesn’t it. Well done for getting involved, it’s a great cause x

      I think almost every person has relatives with some sort of a heart problems. It’s such an important cause.

  4. Such a great cause – heart disease affects so many people. Sounds like a really brilliant book.

  5. They always say to eat a rainbow, definitely looks like this book encourages that. We only get one heart, best to take care of it.

  6. Oh wow this cook book sounds ace. I actually have a small heart condition so this is really interesting for me and I am going to check it out! Certainly a good cause

      Thanks Laura, it is packed with really good recipes, so worth a try.

  7. I think our diet can affect a lot of things in our body, it’s a huge factor that we need to realise isn’t going to change unless we change it ourselves. I’ve recently gone on a health kick myself and drink fruit smoothies and exercise, all our meals are made from scratch too.. apart from our Wednesday takeaway day, everyone needs a treat ? #fabfridaypost

      Absolutely right. There’s no harm to have a take away once a week, the problem is when even the home made meals are unhealthy or regular visits to fast food restaurants.

      I love colourful food! It feels better to eat it. They say it’s healthier too, the stronger the colour of the veg and fruit, the more beneficial is for you.

  8. Sounds a really good book for ideas on healthy recipes X #fabfridaypost

  9. This is so Awesome! Congratulations Eva! Well done to you! What a great cause to be involved. I love your recipes. They are so healthy and colourful. They must taste great too!

    Thank you very much for linking up with us on #FabFridayPost

  10. What a great initiative, and also very generous of you to give one of your own recipes to support such a worthy cause. I have heart problems myself so am always in support of anything which can help to improve heart health. Thanks for sharing with us at #FabFridayPost

      I think almost everyone has someone close to their heart with some heart problem. It should be important for everyone.
