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.
