Heart-Healthy Cooking

A heart-healthy diet when combined with a healthy lifestyle can slow or even reverse the narrowing of arteries and prevent further complications. Adopting a healthy diet reduces LDL cholesterol, lowers blood pressure, lowers blood sugar, and reduces body weight. Heart healthy diet includes:

  • Eat more vegetables, fruits, whole grains
  • Limit saturated fats and trans-fats and while cooking use monounsaturated fat or polyunsaturated fat.
  • Eat a variety of protein-rich foods.
  • Eat complex carbohydrates, found in foods like whole wheat pasta, whole-grain breads and sweet potatoes to add fiber and regulate blood sugar levels.
  • Eat meals regularly
  • While cooking use less salt
