Niagara Falls, Ontario - January 27, 2017: This year, Heart Niagara is celebrating their 40th anniversary of serving Niagara's 12 municipalities and empowering the community to take control of their heart health.
To commemorate another decade of achievement and success, the non-profit organization has published a heart healthy cookbook titled, The Heart of Your Community.
The focus of the cookbook is Niagara's bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables while providing guidance on how to eat seasonally using local food options. Additionally, the cookbook will promote heart healthy eating options to manage premature risk for chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes.
Readers will enjoy 160 recipes, contributed by local residents, and photos by Niagara Fine Art Landscape Photographer, Doug Hagadorn. Categories include appetizers, beverages, desserts, main dishes, side dishes and soups/salads.
I cannot believe Heart Niagara is reaching this 40 year milestone," exclaimed Heart Niagara's executive director, Karen Stearne.
"This third cookbook is more than a showpiece in our legacy. The resources developed will assist the community to continue on a road to a healthier Niagara. The cookbook will provide tools, techniques and sources to eat local, eat healthy, and celebrate the beauty of Niagara from the landscape to the people."
Heart Niagara invites everyone to join them at tomorrow's launch of The Heart of Your Community cookbook.
