8 Steps to a Healthy Heart

Your heart health and eating habits go hand in hand. You will not want to miss these tips, on which foods to eat more of and which foods to limit, that will help you toward a heart-healthy eating plan and lifestyle.

Since we were kids, we were told, especially from our grandparents, to eat a huge plate, so we would grow big and strong, and at my grandma’s house I couldn’t leave the dinner table if I didn’t finish. The thing is, we don’t need that amount of food, calories, fat and cholesterol. The solution is simple, under-eating. We don’t need to feel stuffed every time we eat, select low-calorie, nutrient-rich foods, such as fruits and vegetables to help shape up your diet as well as your heart and waistline.


Welcome vegetables and fruits to your daily diet, as breakfast, snacks, desserts, etc. since they are a great source of nutrients, fiber and low in calorie, they also contain different substances that help prevent cardiovascular disease.
If you want to regulate your blood pressure and heart health, whole grains must be in your next grocery shopping list, since they are packed with fiber and nutrients, use your imagination as well; try whole-grain couscous, quinoa, barley or flaxseed, which is high in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids.
