February is always a time for celebration in New Orleans. Typically Mardi Gras is in full force, or we may be fortunate enough to celebrate a Saints Super Bowl win. But, this February also marks a more substantial and impactful national celebration – the five-year anniversary of the First Lady’s Let’s Move! initiative.

February is American Heart Month and the perfect time to learn new recipes to stay heart healthy! As we look to start (or continue) a journey to better heart health, the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition is excited to support individuals that have committed (or recommitted) to stay physically active and eat healthy! One way to accomplish your goals is start the day with breakfast. A favorite recipe, shared by PCFSN Council member and award-winning chef Dan Barber, is a quick and easy vegetable frittata.
