iChoices Highlights

Theme: Heart Health

Everyone has a vested interest in taking care of their heart. Being intentional about eating a heart healthy diet and being more active can put us on the right track. Enjoying lean proteins, colorful fruits and vegetables, and whole grains more often, while limiting processed foods can provide needed energy and fiber and reduce those not-so-good fats and extra sodium found in some foods. Additional tips to reduce sodium include:

  • Use non-salt-based seasonings (such as Mrs. Dash or garlic powder) more often.
  • If you do use salt, only add small amounts during cooking and avoid adding it at the table.
  • Purchase foods with labels that read “no added salt” or “low sodium.”

To boost heart health with more activity, aim for at least 30 minutes of movement per day. Whatever you do, get pumped about making healthier choices! Your heart will thank you for it!
