February is still less than a week old, but because it is American Heart Month, we want to help raise awareness of heart health in our country by sharing some of the best food that help give a boost to your heart. One of the most recommended food by doctors and dietitians for your heart is Oatmeal. It is not only delicious, but it contains omega-3 fatty acid, potassium, and fiber that can lower your bad cholesterol to help keep your arteries clear. Another food that has rich omega-3 content is salmon. With only two servings per week, it can reduce heart attack risks by a third according to Health.com. To add some variety to your meals, an avocado not only can reduce your “bad cholesterol”, but it raises your “good cholesterol” in the process.
While these are only three of the more popular choices in heart healthy food, adding these to your regular diet can dramatically help improve your diet!
