Heart Healthy Eating Substitutions Potato Soup Recipe #HormelFamily

It’s not only Valentine’s Day today but February is also heart month. We’re thinking up ways to eat heart healthy and Hormel has a few tips for us to share and I’ve even created a healthier soup recipe from what I’ve done in the past. I changed this Potato Soup recipe into this:

Heart Healthy Potato Soup Recipe:

1 1/2 cups already cooked brown rice
6 red potatoes cut
2 cups baby carrots
1 package Hormel low sodium chicken bouillon
6 cups water
2 teaspoons white pepper
1 cup cheddar cheese

Directions:

Put all ingredients in the crock pot except cheese on medium heat for 10 hours (or high for 2 and low for 5). When ready to serve add the cheese and stir the soup until the cheese is well blended. The rice will help thicken the soup.  

Other Heart Healthy Recommendations:

Substitute high-fat foods for lower-fat counterparts. Use liquid oils when cooking like olive and canola oil instead of solid fats like butter and margarine.

Reduce fat and keep an eye on salt consumption by trying out a variety of spices and seasonings. Bouillons are a great way to add seasonings without adding fat. Try beef flavored Herb-Ox® bouillon sodium-free granules that are perfect to add a unique flavor to gravies, marinades, soups, stews, rice dishes, pasta dishes and stir-fries.

Most fruits and vegetables are low in calories and high in fiber, which is great for your heart. Grabbing a handful of vegetables is a quick, perfect, heart-healthy snack during the day. Use the leftovers to throw into a pasta dish later in the evening. If you’re on the go, try the small, compact, and delicious CHI-CHI’S® Snackers® with carrots or celery.

Consume at least 4 servings of nuts, legumes, and seeds each week and avoid more than 36 ounces of sugar-sweetened beverages each week.

Lean proteins help to provide you with a sense of fullness and keep hunger at bay in between meals. Try a Hormel® Always Tender® pork roast for dinner, packed with 18g of protein, in either a roast flavor or onion and garlic roast.
