For 125 years, Good Housekeeping has helped women across generations live healthy, happy, no-fuss lives. At that age, the title knows a thing or two about heart health and cooking. The editors are sharing the know-how by sponsoring a healthy competition in conjunction with the American Heart Association: Cook Your Heart Out, billed as Americaâ€™s first heart-healthy cooking competition. Readers are encouraged to test their culinary prowess by devising a heart-healthy dish in one of six culinary categories: Fast and Easy, Elegant Entertaining, Family-Friendly, Ethnic Favorites, Occasional Treats, and Starters. All recipes will be reviewed in the Good Housekeeping Test Kitchens, and three finalists from each category will be flown to New York City August 27-30 to prepare their recipes for a panel of judges. The chef with the healthiest and most delicious meal will be cooking to the tune of a $125,000 prize!
All entries must be submitted by May 15 and are required to meet guidelines set by the American Heart Association. Click for more information including rules and a submission form. — Sarah C.
