Eating? Ya, we can do that. Eating right? Now, that’s a different story. Diet plays an integral role in your overall health and can immensely boost your heart health. Adding these versatile foods to your everyday diet could help reduce your chance of heart disease and stroke.
- Berries can easily be added frozen into a smoothie or fresh on a salad. This super fruit not only taste delicious but are high in antioxidants that help fight many diseases including heart disease.
- Oatmeal is a whole grain that is packed with fibre and can assist in regulating blood pressure. So next time you’re feeling a slice of white bread for toast, try subbing for oatmeal instead. We promise it’s just as easy to make and well worth it in the long run!
- Avocado is a can-do choice. Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fats. If you don’t know what that means, don’t worry. Basically, what you need to know if these types of fats help the function of your heart and maintain your body’s cells.
- Eggs are a great low-fat protein option to add to your meals. The best part is, they are easy to cook and can be incorporated into any meals. Whether you like em’ sunny side up in the morning or hard boiled in a salad at lunch, eggs can easily be transformed into any meal.
A healthy diet is only the start to a healthy life but making this small change in your lifestyle is a step in the right direction.
So next time you’re thinking of picking up a quick snack at an on-the-go joint, think with your heart, not your head or shall we say stomach?
