Fight Heart Disease With These Heart Healthy Foods

Every year, over 500,000 people in America die from heart disease and while exercise and portion control can help you stay healthy, nothing has been shown to reduce heart disease more than a heart healthy diet.

While you should always eat heart healthy proteins such as wild salmon, grass-fed beef and egg whites, some of the most heart healthy snacks you can go for are fruits, vegetables, grains and nuts. These foods tend to be naturally low in cholesterol, calories, saturated fat and sodium, while providing the body with ample vitamins, nutrients, fiber and antioxidants.

This infographic is loaded with heart healthy options, highlighting the individual benefits of each fruit, vegetable, grain and nut listed. If you don’t think enjoying a heart healthy meal can be pleasurable -just imagine snacking on a grass-fed steak with sauteed red peppers, spinach brown rice risotto, sweet potato with an orange-cinnamon glaze and a dessert of dark chocolate covered blueberries dusted with crushed almonds.
