Monthly Mingle - Heart Healthy

When I got February as my month for the Monthly Mingle I knew I wanted it to tie in to Valentines day. I didn't want it to be too cliched though and thought long and hard about what I could use that would not exclude people and what hadn't been used before.

I decided to go with Heart Healthy. A little bit cheesy, a tiny bit punny but connected it was. You need your heart to love and then to live a long happy life with the one you love. Having a healthy heart means you can spend lots of time doing fun things with all the people you love. From going on adventures with your partner to running around the garden with your kids (or furkids)

What does Heart Healthy mean? 
Foods that heal and boost our health. From whole grains, to Omega 3's. Lots of good fats and fruit and veg.  Low-sodium and low-cholesterol. Everyone thinks that all results in boring food. This month I challenge you to create delicious food that won't only warm the heart but keep it healthy

This is how it works:
  1. Create a dish that fits the Heart Healthy theme 
  2. Post about it on your blog between now and  29 February (entries must be in English, please).
  3. Your creation must exclusively be prepared for the current Monthly Mingle theme and cannot be submitted to any other blog event.
  4. You must provide a link to the Monthly Mingle page and this post and send the details to me goldenangel[at]gmail[dot]com
If you have any questions just give me a shout. Looking forward to some delicious and healthy recipes :)


  1. Nice one! I would love to enter this event with my perfectly heart healthy sexy Valentines dishes but am not too sure now if I can...In rule 3 you say it must be exclusive but I create dishes for ClemenGold so my dishes will appear on their blog and mine. Not a blog event per se but not sure if they would qualify. xx

  2. Hey, I've just entered a recipe on this month's mingle. I'm hoping to have all the boxes ticked. If not, then please do let me know. Thanks! :)
