5 Heart Healthy Tips

Here are five easy, heart-healthy resolutions for every lifestyle:

  1. Drink more water. Drinking the right amount water is a key ingredient in staying healthy. If you’re drinking more water, you’ll have less room for sugary sodas.
  1. Go green. By keeping your cabinets stocked with heart healthy fruits and vegetables you are in better position to stick to a healthy diet. If fresh doesn’t work with your schedule or habits, frozen or canned works well.
  1. Eat seasonally. Good for your budget and waistline, eating seasonally means you are getting food at its peak performance and flavor level.
  1. Cut out processed food. Say no to aspartame, high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated oil. In addition to chemicals you’re body doesn’t need or want, processed foods are full of added salt. Higher salt intake puts you at risk for high blood pressure.
  1. Eat more fiber. Fiber is crucial to heart health and reducing the risk of heart disease. It’s easy to add to your diet – whole grains are filled with fiber, which makes digestion easier and helps you feel fuller when you’re done eating.
