Heart Healthy Month

Don’t forget to wear Red in February for Heart Disease Awareness Month.  Exercise and dietary changes can help lower cholesterol and blood pressure.  Eating foods that are high in Omega 3 fatty acids is proven to help lower cholesterol levels.  Some of those foods would be salmon and other fish, almonds, walnuts, flaxseeds and chia seeds, just to name a few.  Some other heart healthy foods would be green leafy vegetables, berries, whole grains, avocados, dark chocolate and olive oils.  So for Valentine’s Day this year you could have bought your loved one some strawberries dipped in dark chocolate!
