Guest Report - Heart Healthy Eating

 

"Eat to your heart's content". Have you ever heard of this idiom before? Figuratively, it means to eat as much as you want. But just think – if Americans followed this rule in a literal sense, heart disease wouldn't be the #1 killer in this country! The Standard American Diet (SAD)is highly processed, high in saturated fats, and leads to a high risk for heart disease. Research published by the American Heart Association demonstrates that a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and fish can lower your risk of dying from a heart attack or stroke by 35%. February is American Heart Month. Be "Heart-Smart" and add in some of these delicious, heart-healthy foods to your diet. 

  • Kale: this dark leafy green is full of antioxidants, fiber and lutein which protects against atherosclerosis.
  • Garlic: a natural antibiotic can also help lower your blood pressure and reduce plaque build-up in your arteries.  
  • Salmon: high in Omega 3 fatty acids, this anti-inflammatory fish can lower your LDL and raise your HDL.
  • Lentils: high in fiber, folate, magnesium and potassium, this legume fights high blood pressure.
  • Berries: rich in antioxidants called polyphenols that work to protect against high blood pressure and boost good cholesterol.

There are many foods that promote heart health. So do your best to prevent heart disease and literally "eat to your heart's content".
