Best Food for Your Heart

RSS

Health.com gives us some great examples of food that is great for your heart. In order to prevent heart disease or even a heart attack, keep these foods in mind for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

  1. Avocado—By adding a slice or two into your sandwich would help lower LDL levels (bad) while raising the amount of HDL cholesterol (good) in your body. They also allow carotenoids to be absorbed which are antioxidants that are vital for your heart.
  2. Spinach (vegetables)—A study found out that those who ate at least two-and-a-half servings of vegetables everyday reduce their risk of heart disease about 25% compared to those who don’t eat vegetables at all.
  3. Olive Oil—It is full of monounsaturated fats that lowers LDL cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. Try using this instead of butter and use extra virgin olive oil (it is less processed).
  4. Oatmeal—Used as a snack or breakfast, a small bowl of oatmeal is full of nutritional goodness like omega-3 fatty acids, folate, and potassium. Try the coarse oats instead of instant as it contains more fiber. Try adding berries, bananas or other fruit to get more nutrition out of your bowl.
