Eggland's Best and the American Heart Assn. (AHA) are teaming up with television personality and cookbook author Richard Blais to share delicious, healthy recipes the whole family will love. In celebration of AHA's healthy cooking at home resources, Eggland's Best and AHA are encouraging families to tune in to a virtual cooking series by visiting the association's Healthy for Good Facebook page at noon (EST) on July 24 and July 31.
"With people spending more time at home this summer, there's a great opportunity to build healthier eating habits by cooking nutritious meals together," AHA chief medical officer for prevention Dr. Eduardo Sanchez said "We're excited to work with Eggland's Best once again to help families learn how to eat smart and build better nutrition habits."
Eggland's Best continues to be a proud national supporter of AHA’s Healthy for Good movement, which encourages people to take small steps every day to build lifelong healthy habits for themselves and for their families. Hosted by restaurateur Blais, the cooking series will highlight heart-healthy recipes created in collaboration with AHA and Eggland's Best to showcase simple ways consumers can make nutritious meals at home.
"Cooking together as a family is an amazing way to stay connected during challenging times, but cooking healthy doesn't mean you have to sacrifice great taste," Blais said. "I'm proud to be teaming up with the American Heart Assn. to show families how to put a healthier spin on the classic comfort food recipes that we all know and love."
Blais will teach viewers how to make zucchini-parmesan pancakes on July 24 and huevos rancheros on July 31. The video segments will also be shared to Eggland's Best's official Instagram account for additional viewing.
"Eggland's Best is thrilled to be joining forces with the American Heart Assn. for the third year in a row to highlight the importance of incorporating nutritious foods into family meals," Eggland's Best chief executive officer Charlie Lanktree said. "Together, through our virtual cooking series, we hope to inspire families at home to make healthier choices together."
