No Better Time to Get a Fresh Start on Your Heart-Healthy Diet

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women and men. So, there's no better time to get a fresh start on your heart-healthy diet. A great tool to help you get started is CHI Franciscan Health's Well-Fed Heart site.

Check out these tips from the site:

  • A heart-healthy diet can be satisfying.

When you think of quick, heart-healthy recipes, you likely think of salads. But sometimes those leafy greens just won't hit the spot. Try an Edamame and Black Bean Salad instead.

  • Always eat breakfast—even if it's on the go.

Save time this spring by whipping up Busy Morning Breakfast Bites at night to ensure you eat breakfast. They are a great way to enjoy low-fat dairy and blood pressure-reducing minerals on the go.

  • Spring cleaning? Don't forget your kitchen.

Set yourself up for heart-healthy eating success by adding your kitchen to your spring cleaning list.
 
The Well-Fed Heart site was launched by members of the  Battelle Healthcare Colloquium in 2015. This site provides heart failure patients, and those who aim to prevent heart disease, with physician- and dietitian- approved heart-healthy recipes and tips.
