Lay the Foundation for Optimal Heart Health with a Good Diet

Heart Healthy Eating Tips

February may be the awareness month for Heart Health in the United States. However, the heart has to be taken care of not only in February but throughout the year. This is best achieved through a healthy lifestyle of a good diet, regular exercise, and sleep. These heart-healthy eating tips can prove helpful and are worth knowing.

Good Fat Diet

A diet is usually associated with a low-fat diet. However, it’s not enough to go low-fat. A diet needs to include good fats like olive, coconut, and avocado oil to support the body’s energy systems. A diet that includes whole foods like avocados, almonds, ground flaxseed, walnuts, and salmon gives the body heart-healthy fat and omega-3 oils for a healthy heart and brain.

PROPER PAIRING OF PROTEINS

Balance the diet with healthy fats and proteins that the body requires. Not many know it, but it’s better to pair animal protein sources with vegetables instead of heavy starches. According to Healthline, starches and proteins are not a good combination.

Pay Attention

Take note of how the body feels while eating different foods. 

Try eating starchy foods and carbs with veggies, a protein with veggies, and then a traditional meat and potatoes meal and notice the difference in how the body feels.

Mindful eating can enhance life experience, lower stress, and thus support heart health.
