Delicious ways to cook fresh ingredients offered in new American Heart Association cookbook

Go Fresh includes 250 recipes to help freshen up your family’s meals

Whether your kitchen is stocked with fresh produce from your local farmers market, the grocery store or your own garden this summer, the American Heart Association’s newest cookbook, Go Fresh, can provide you with healthy, easy recipes to use seasonal fruits and vegetables.

Go Fresh features 250 recipes, most of which take less than 20 minutes to put together and less than 30 minutes to cook.

Research shows that the more you cook at home, the easier it is to achieve or maintain a heart-healthy lifestyle.

According to the American Heart Association, a healthy diet and lifestyle is one of the best tools for fighting cardiovascular disease. Made with fresh ingredients can give the way you eat a whole new taste. This cookbook will show that eating nutritiously can be absolutely delicious and flavorful and that using fresh ingredients doesn’t take a lot of time.

The cookbook includes colorful, full-page photographs, nutritional information for all recipes, and helpful shopping and cooking tips. Recipes include Blueberry-Walnut Chicken Salad, Blackened Fish with Crisp Kale and Creamy Lemon Sauce, and Tomato-Basil Stuffed Pork Tenderloin.

Go Fresh is dedicated to Kelly Chapman Meyer, co-founder of the American Heart Association’s Teaching Gardens and national champion of getting people to eat more fruits and vegetables. American Heart Association Teaching Gardens teach students to plant seeds, nurture growing plants, harvest crops and ultimately better understand the value of good eating habits, challenging kids to make small changes to improve their health.

Go Fresh is available at, and wherever books are sold.
