Almond Board |

On CTV Morning Live in Ottawa, ABC spokesperson Christy Brissette shared heart healthy meal ideas for Valentine's Day. For her salmon pilaf recipe, she adds 'super heart healthy almonds which are rich in fiber and protein which help manage appetite by helping you feel more full and satisfied.'  The host mentions how she keeps a stack of almonds in her desk and Christy adds how they're great from a weight management perspective helping prevent heart disease.
