Ingredients: Love, Laughter and Loads of Good Food

Love is in the air!

This time of year we're reminded to appreciate things just a little more - good food, good health, and most importantly, the ones we love. Whatever you do this season, have it come from the heart. Whether it's your perfect Valentine's Day meal, a little something extra for your pooch, or a little more focus on fighting for your health, get out there and spread the love.

LOVE FOR GOOD FOOD

Eat, drink, and be merry - it's Mardi Gras time! Don the costumes, break out the beads, and cozy up at the table with a plate full of paczkis! You don't have to go to the French Quarter of New Orleans to celebrate right. Just stop by your local Festival Foods and we'll have you stocked up and ready.

Try some of these healthy Mardi Gras inspired recipes and celebrate Fat Tuesday without the "fat" part!

Reducing the amount of salt in your food is a big part of a heart healthy diet. The American Heart Association recommends no more than about a teaspoon of salt a day for an adult. This may sound minimal, but there are several easy — and even delicious — ways to reduce your sodium intake.
