Life Recipes for Heart Health, Fun & Togetherness
The internet is filled with heart healthy food recipes, and we love that because they inspire all of us to eat well, which helps us to stay energized and creates a lifetime of good food habits and choices! Yay for the superfoods!
And while eating a healthy diet is extremely important and something we cannot encourage enough, we decided to go a little bit different route with our recipes - we’d like to share some life recipes for living a heart healthy, active and fun-filled life. As we know all too well, our kids are spending more and more time in front of a screen (especially in the winter months) and less time in front of a tree, trail, river or on their bikes having outdoor adventures. We at Spindaroos would like to feature ideas that include a balance between technology and nature.
Here are a few cooler weather recipes for a healthy lifestyle we’d like to share.

1 pair of gloves

These are some recipes that you’re whole family is guaranteed to eat up! So, get yourself and your kids out there and enjoy a healthy, fun, active life! Pepper in some technology here and there, but make the most vivid flavors of your lives be the memories you’re making by savoring life together.
