It's easy to find recipes for Valentine's Day. The blogs abound with them. This article from VegNews features beets, one of my favorite vegetables that just happens to be heart-friendly
Many of these recipes are self-defeating in the heart-friendly department by their use of oil and salt. Depending on the recipe, you can remedy that by leaving it out. I often substitute vegetable broth for oil which gives the dish more flavor than using plain water; obviously that doesn't work for sweet dishes. BTW, Chef Chole Coscarelli's Beet Fettuccine Alfredo is outstanding!
When I make it, I use some broth made with Better Than Bouillon No Chicken and omit the salt. If you are on a strict no sodium diet, use a sodium-free broth - homemade is best.

I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives. ~Dean Ornish
