Get Tips for Healthy Eating
Small changes in your eating habits make a big difference in your heart health — and there’s no one right way to eat healthy! You can find healthy eating habits that work for you.
Try these tips to make heart-healthy changes:
- Eat more fruits and veggies. Try making half your plate fruits and veggies at each meal. And if you can’t buy fresh, remember that canned and frozen options count, too!
- Cut down on sodium. Too much sodium (salt) can raise your risk for high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. Processed and packaged foods have a lot of sodium — so check the Nutrition Facts label and choose options with less sodium.
- Choose healthier fats. Too much saturated fat from fatty meats and full-fat dairy can be bad for your health. Try swapping saturated fat for healthier unsaturated fats — like fats in olive oil, avocados, and nuts.
