Heart Healthy Pork Medallions with Apples

February is heart month! Our February recipes are from the Heart and Stroke Foundation's recipe collection.

Why Heart Month?

Over the last 60 years, the Heart & Stroke Foundation helped reduce the rate of death from cardiovascular disease by 75 per cent. There is still work to be done. Heart disease and stroke remain leading causes of death and hospitalization in Canada.
