WHY: In this second year partnership, Cherry Creek North partners with Denver’s American Heart Association to help create awareness around the important cause of heart disease. One in 3 women die from heart disease and stroke. Denver’s premier shopping & dining district, Cherry Creek North, hopes to inspire women to take action now to reduce the risk of heart disease and improve their health.
Visitors can refine their healthy shopping and cooking skills with Whole Foods Market Chef, Charlotte, as she highlights the best foods to eat to keep your heart strong and demo how to cook some of her favorite recipes like Baked Salmon with Lemon and Parsley and Flaxseed and Oatmeal Crumble. Samples provided and recipes to take home. Class is free and open to the public. RSVP required: 720--941--4100.
Dining out doesn’t have to ruin a heart healthy diet. Offerings like Ratatouille from Crepes ‘N Crepes, Heirloom Beet Salad from NoRTH Italia, and Grilled Salmon from The Weber are examples of some Denver Restaurant Week menu items that are indulgent and healthy. There is even dessert (think Pomegranate Yuzu Sorbet from True Foods Kitchen)!
