Eating enough heart-healthy foods?
Wanna show your heart some love by eating more foods that support your heart’s health, but not sure where you can start? No problem! Eating plenty of foods that support your heart health is always a great idea, but sometimes it can be tough to include them in your everyday diet. Snap Kitchen not only makes that easy, we make it super delish too – that way your heart is healthy and happy.
Let’s get started!
Dark Leafy Greens
Dark leafy greens are some of the most nutritious foods you can eat! They’re naturally low in calories and fat, but high in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. For all of these reasons, greens are a heart-healthy food.
Get more dark, leafy goodness into your diet with more spinach, kale, and bok choy!
Not all carbs are bad! Whole grains, such as quinoa, brown rice, and sprouted whole-grain toast provide our bodies with energy, B vitamins, and fiber. A high fiber diet has been linked to decreased risk of heart disease, so be sure to include whole grains regularly as a part of a heart-healthy diet.
Try adding some cooked quinoa or brown rice to your next salad!
Lean Proteins & Legumes
Lean proteins are important to include at each meal for blood sugar balance, energy, and muscle mass. Legumes in particular have been linked to reducing LDL cholesterol and overall decreasing inflammation, which is helpful in reducing the risk of heart disease.
Include more chicken, turkey, beans, and lentils fir a more heart-friendly meal.
Double delish, get your lean proteins & legumes with our Turkey Meatloaf with Potato-Turnip Mash & Green Beans, Chicken Piccata with Garlic Roasted Cauliflower, or our Chicken Teriyaki Bowl with Forbidden Rice
Healthy Fats & Oils
Healthy, plant-based fats such as olive oil, nuts, seeds, avocado, and coconuts are important for a healthy heart. Each has its own unique fatty acid profile, all of which are considered to be anti-inflammatory and help improve cholesterol and lipid profiles.
Healthy fats & oils are essential for heart health – try our Almond-Crusted Salmon with Roasted Carrots & Zucchini, Creamy Chicken Stew with Rice and our Shawarma Chicken Bowl with Lemon Tahini Sauce
