EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

“I am not afraid to alter recipes when possible—I use reduced-fat cheese, no-fat cheese, turkey sausage, turkey pepperoni, chicken for beef. Once I started doing that, I felt more confident trying it in other recipes.” Nancy D.

It’s never too early to include kids in heart-healthy eating, so they learn good habits from day one. Ask them to help plan and prepare dinner to get them interested in foods and what they eat. In this easy recipe, they can mix the tuna and mayonnaise and make their own sandwiches. (You may need to help them use the oven, though.)
