How Heart Healthy Foods help you
How can this simple list help you?
Well if you eat foods with lots of fiber, much of the excess cholesterol in your digestive system will be absorbed and eliminated when you visit the rest room.
This is how our body is designed to work and this is far, far better than having to use drugs.
It is easy to get lots of fiber into your diet by eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, rolled oats and beans. You can even supplement by taking a teaspoon or two of Psyllium a day, a natural dietary fiber.
Nuts are not just "snack" food. They are a great source of essential fatty acids which are also vital for good heart health. Pick any of your favorites among almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, peanuts, pecans, pistachios, etc and have a hand full a day.
They ARE a great snack food and you can easily cut out carbs that you don't need and even replace some of the protein and fats you eat, with nuts.
If you base 60-70% of what you eat on fresh fruits and vegetables you can't help but get well!
Fruits and vegetables are where you get all those good antioxidants, vitamins, sterols and stanols and fiber which all prevent disease and bad health.
Some of the best things to eat are apples, all types of berries, cruciferous veggies like broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbages, kale, etc.
As a simple guide include lots of fruits and vegetables of different types and COLORS.
For the best effect, try to eat as much of these as you can RAW as cooking destroys many vitamins, antioxidants and enzymes.
Try to eat an apple a day but preferably 3 each day. Why? The old saying about an apple a day keeps the doctor away is actually true.
Apples are a perfect snack and contain lots of fiber and QUERCETIN which is a very powerful preventative (flavinoid and antioxidant) of cancer and other bad health.
