What are you doing for your heart?

heart1  February is Heart Month.

Remember … your heart takes care of you every second … of every 24 hour day

… of every year!

What are you doing for your heart in return? Are you feeding your heart healthy foods?

Follow these tips for heart-healthy eating:

Eat less saturated and trans fat. Stay away from fatty meats, fried foods, cakes, and cookies.

Cut down on sodium (salt). Look for the low-sodium or “no salt added” types of canned soups, vegetables, snack foods, and lunch meats.

Eat more fiber. Fiber is in vegetables, fruits, and whole grains.

 Do you have heart-healthy foods at home?   

 When you buy groceries, put on your shopping list some or all of the following:

1. Vegetables and Fruits: for less expensive choices, buy what’s in-season;

2 Low-fat Milk and Milk Products, including cheeses;

3. Breads, Cereals, and Pastas that are whole grain;

4. Lean Meats and Fish, such as turkey, chicken, tuna, and salmon;

5. Beans and other high fiber foods such as nuts and seeds;

6. Fats and Oils with ‘good fats’ such as olive, canola, and peanut oil; low-fat mayonnaise.

 Take good care of your heart and it will take good care of you!
