Heart Smart Selections

February 10th 2023

February is American Heart Month. 

This is a great time to focus on maintaining or improving cardiovascular health.

 Heart Healthy Ingrediants

For an instant boost of heart-loving nutrients, regularly include these foods in your cart and on your plate.

Avocados: Avocados offer nearly 20 vitamins and minerals and contribute monounsaturated “good” fats that can help improve the intake of dietary fat without raising LDL cholesterol levels. Spread mashed avocado on toast, toss cubed avocado in salads or add sliced avocado to wraps or sandwiches.

Walnuts: Walnuts offer more omega-3s than any other tree nut. One ounce of walnuts also provides four grams of protein and two grams of fiber. This versatile plant-based protein adds a heart-smart crunch to sweet and savory recipes.

Oats: Whole-grain oats supply beta-glucan – a soluble fiber that binds some LDL cholesterol in your digestive tract and keeps it from entering your bloodstream. Enjoy one bowl of old-fashioned oatmeal a day to consume two grams of this beneficial fiber.

Leafy Greens: Dark, leafy greens like kale, spinach and Swiss chard supply potassium, calcium and magnesium – all nutrients linked to heart health. They also deliver folic acid, which may lower risk factors associated with heart disease. Add leafy greens to soups, salads, casseroles and more.
