Having a Healthy Heart!

Having a healthy heart is just a matter of making smart heart food choices as well as getting a good amount of excercise daily. Here are some good healthy heart food suggestions:

* Note the foods given on the last post - Ten of the Worst Foods to Avoid - and avoid them!
* Eat dried beans and peas, whole grains, raw fruits and vegetables as your main diet.
* Eat soy products (tofu, soy milk) which are good for the heart.
* Think green - celery, broccoli, spinach, kale, leavy greens, fresh herbs are all good for the heart.
* Eat cold-water fish such as salmon, tuna, and cod.
* For good fats, use cold pressed olive oil and safflower oil, plus raw nuts, flax seeds and avocados.
* Don't eat sodium chloride (salt)! Eat an unprocessed high mineral sea salt such as Real Salt.
* When you eat out - make these same good food choices. It's possible to eat well always!

Have a healthy heart by choosing heart smart foods - and remember to exercise daily too!

To your best health,
