Happy Valentine's Day! 

Here's a special Valentine's Day newsletter for you! I saw some great articles and recipes and just had to share! Plus, we are raising money for CHOP at The Edge during Love Week next week! 

It's February – American Heart Month – a time when the nation spotlights heart disease, the No. 1 killer of Americans.

President Lyndon B. Johnson, among the millions of people in the country who'd had heart attacks, issued the first proclamation in 1964. Since then, U.S. presidents have annually declared February American Heart Month.

7 Healthy Chocolate Treats to Enjoy on V-Day

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, which can only mean one thing: It’s chocolate season. Now, many people would argue chocolate is great year-round, and they would be correct. But come February, chocolate flies off shelves at a rapid rate. So, if you find yourself face-to-face with a hundred different options this year, you might as well choose something that tastes great and provides a few health benefits.

Cauliflower Steaks (I can't wait to make this!)

READY IN: 30mins
SERVES: 4
YIELD: 4 Steaks
INGREDIENTS
Nutrition

  • 1 large cauliflower head
  • 12 cup pitted kalamata olive
  • 3 sun-dried tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 12 tablespoons olive oil, divided plus more
  • 2 tablespoons chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • kosher salt
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 plum tomatoes, cored, quartered
DIRECTIONS
  • Remove leaves and trim stem end of cauliflower, leaving core intact. Slice cauliflower into four 1/2" "steaks" from center of cauliflower (some florets will break loose; reserve).
  • Finely chop enough loose florets to measure 1/2 cup.
  • Transfer chopped florets to a small bowl and mix with olives, sun-dried tomatoes, 1 tablespoon oil, parsley, and lemon juice. Season relish with salt and pepper.
  • Preheat oven to 400°. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large heavy ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Cook cauliflower steaks until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side, adding tablespoon oil to pan between batches.
  • Transfer steaks to a large, rimmed baking sheet. Reserve skillet. Roast cauliflower until tender, about 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, return skillet to medium-high heat and add garlic cloves and tomatoes, one cut side down. Cook until tomatoes are browned; turn tomatoes over and transfer skillet to oven with cauliflower. Roast garlic and tomatoes until tender, about 12 minutes.
  • Transfer garlic, tomatoes, and 1/2 tablespoon oil to a blender; purée until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Divide tomato sauce among plates. Place 1 cauliflower steak on each plate; spoon relish over. Serve warm or at room temperature.
