Meal Planning Tool Kit

Our September meeting used the Heart & Stroke Risk Assessment Survey to get some discussion going on the most common opportunities we have as a group to further improve improve “heart healthy” living and add life to our years. We also agreed to use the results to develop programming for future meetings and content for the website.

Here are the top four areas identified;

  1. Diet
  2. Healthy Weight Management
  3. Physical Activity
  4. Stress Management

One of our grads said the biggest challenge with diet and weight management is meal planning. The Heart & Stroke website has an excellent tool for meal planning. We have put a link to this tool here and also posted it on the website on the Eating Well page.
