Heart-healthy eating can be surprisingly simple and scrumptious. Once you know the basic rules, you can get creative in your kitchen.
• Eat more plant-based foods....
• Reach for whole grains and veggies to boost your fiber.
• Dial back your salt intake.
• Go for "good" fats from foods like nuts, olive oil, avocado, and fish. Limit saturated fats found in high-fat meat and dairy foods, and avoid trans fats from chips and other junk food.
