Spring Into a Heart-Healthy Diet

Posted by Battelle Staff on Mar 30, 2016

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women and men. So, there's no better time to get a fresh start on your heart-healthy diet. A great tool to help you get started is CHI Franciscan Health's Well-Fed Heart site.

Check out these tips from the site:

A heart-healthy diet can be satisfying.

When you think of quick, heart-healthy recipes, you likely think of salads. But sometimes those leafy greens just won't hit the spot. Try an Edamame and Black Bean Salad instead.

Always eat breakfast—even if it's on the go.

Save time this spring by whipping up Busy Morning Breakfast Bites at night to ensure you eat breakfast. They are a great way to enjoy low-fat dairy and blood pressure-reducing minerals on the go.

Spring cleaning? Don't forget your kitchen.

Set yourself up for heart-healthy eating success by adding your kitchen to your spring cleaning list. Use this resource as a guide to phase in heart-healthy versions of food already found in your fridge and pantry.

The Well-Fed Heart site was launched by members of the Battelle Healthcare Colloquium in  2015. This site provides heart failure patients, and those who aim to prevent heart disease, with physician- and dietitian- approved heart-healthy recipes and tips.
