Heart-Healthy Foods

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
  • Berries
  • Flaxseed
  • 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!
