Healthy Table

Heart wants what it wants

Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of death in America. Statistics show that someone has a heart attack every 34 seconds. However, this can easily be prevented through simple steps.

  • Eat healthy. Meals don’t have to be deep fried in saturated fat to be tasty. You can eat healthy by avoiding high fatty foods and cooking at home rather than dining out.
  • Cut your meat intake. Try to have days or meals completely without meat. You don’t have to become a vegetarian, just limit your intake. If anything, try substituting red meat with chicken breast or salmon.
  • Count fat grams. One of the best ways to select packaged foods is to see how much fat it contains. Select foods with 2 grams of less of saturated fat per serving and 0 grams of trans fat.
  • Get that fresh produce. Produce is a great source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber all of which can help lower blood pressure and protect your arteries.
  • Physical activity. Keeping your body active and fit plays a great role in strengthening your heart.
