Weekly Wellness Insights

Did you know that your heart is about the size of two hands clasped together? This essential organ beats 100,000 times per day! Each minute, your heart pumps 1.5 gallons of blood. According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is your greatest health threat as it's the leading cause of death for both men and women.

February Health Observances

This week, we are highlighting American Heart Month!

Here are 10 tips on how to eat healthier for your heart:

1.       Make your meals. Prepare foods at home so you can better control the fat and salt content in your meals.

2.      Only sprinkle salt. Use as little salt in cooking as possible. You can actually reduce the salt in most recipes to just half.

3.      Look at labels. Choose foods low in saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol and sodium. (Learn more about reading food labels here.)

4.      Do lower-fat dairy. This includes milk, yogurt and cheeses. Start with two percent products, then move to one percent and finally to fat-free to adjust to the new taste.

5.      Stock low-sodium products. You might also find no-salt-added products. Be sure to drain and rinse any canned goods to reduce their salt content even further.

6.      Look for "loin" or "round." Select lean cuts of beef and pork, especially cuts with "loin" or "round" in their name.

7.      Be a master (heart-healthy) chef! Bake, broil, steam, stir-fry or grill foods instead of high-fat frying.

8.     Go fish! Aim to eat fish more regularly. Great options include salmon, lake trout, albacore tuna (in water), mackerel and sardines.

9.      Enjoy more "plant-proteins" at meals. Examples include black beans, chickpeas, soybeans and lentils. In addition to protein, they are also excellent sources of fiber.

10.  Raise only one (or two) glasses. Too much alcohol can raise your blood pressure. If you consume alcohol, it's recommended that men should have no more than two drinks per day, and women only one.
