If you want to lower your risk of heart disease, make sure that you include these items in your heart diet.
- Whole Grains
It’s easy to increase your consumption of fruits and veggies. Make a point of adding a side salad at lunch or dinner more often. If you have a choice between drinking orange juice or eating an orange, go for the whole fruit. You add valuable fiber to your diet and get a serving of Vitamin C as well.
Look for whole grains in cereals, breads, and pastas, and eat them whenever possible. As long as you don’t have any issues with nut allergies, eating almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, peanuts, or walnuts is a heart-heathy move. Drinking green or black teas can help to lower your LDL (“bad”) cholesterol levels.
