The Shortest Path to Heart-Healthy Eating: New Meal Plan Option from eMeals

Get 7 Good-for-Your-Heart Dinner Menus Delivered to Your Email & Smartphone Every Week

BIRMINGHAM, AL (February 11, 2015) – What if you could put heart-healthy, family-friendly dinners on the table every night without constantly scouring scores of recipes and struggling to determine if they make the dietary grade? Now you can with eMeals' Heart Healthy Meal Plan, a new subscription option from the nation's largest online meal planning service that delivers seven easy-to-cook meals to your smartphone or computer every week–complete with recipes, shopping lists and nutrition information.

Created by eMeals registered dietitians and available for families (6 servings) as well as singles/couples (2 servings) for as little as $5 a month, the new eMeals plan is designed for people who have or are at risk for heart disease, have high blood pressure or high cholesterol, or simply want to follow a heart-healthy diet as a preventive measure. Each week's menu includes:

  • Seven heart-healthy entrées with side dishes focusing on fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, poultry, fish and heart-healthy oils like olive and canola
  • Calories plus grams of total fat, saturated fat, sodium, carbohydrate, fiber and protein for each entrée and side dish–including four meals with 50-60 grams of carbohydrate and three with 30-40 grams of carbohydrate
  • Prep and cook times for each meal
  • A once-a-week shopping list arranged by grocery aisle and usable at any grocery store

In accordance with American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines, the plan includes fish once or twice a week and limits red meat to lean options once every other week to keep a lid on saturated fat. The rest of the meals are a mix of lean poultry, lean pork and vegetarian entrées. Total saturated fat in each meal is limited to 4.5 grams, while sodium is limited to 800 mg per meal with the help of lower-sodium and unsalted canned goods as well as by limiting processed foods and using salt-free seasoning options.

Sample meals range from Grilled Spiced Chicken with Black Bean Couscous and Avocado (430 calories, 2.5 grams saturated fat, 460 mg sodium) to Broiled Lemon Salmon with Feta Smashed Potatoes and Steamed Green Beans (390 calories, 3.5 grams saturated fat, 760 mg sodium) and Broccoli-Tomato Pasta Toss (390 calories, 3.5 grams saturated fat, 740 mg sodium).
