Healthy Heart, Healthy Life
In celebration of February being American Heart Month, we’re giving you the highlights of how to maintain a healthy heart. Below you’ll find some great resources to guide your healthy heart journey, and we’d love to see how you’re using them. So during the month of February, snap a picture of how you’re being good to your heart, and tag us using #HSMhealthyheart.
There’ll be a surprise at the end of the month for the most creative social post we see, so get to tagging, and enjoy!
Whether you’re trying to lose weight or simply maintain, eating foods good for your heart can have many additional health benefits. Researchers at the Cleveland Clinic have found some of the best foods for overall heart health include:
- Fish rich in omega-3s (try our one-dish salmon + veggie bake!)
- Healthy nuts like almonds or walnuts
- Oatmeal, and, most importantly
- Red wine
Red Wine + Cholesterol
The Cleveland Clinic researchers also shared the wonderful news that a 4-ounce glass of red wine (up to two for men, and one for women per day) can help improve good (HDL) cholesterol levels. We always knew that wine was a super food, but don’t take it from us, take it from the clinicians!
