Be a friend to yourself. Three foods that are good for your heart:
Walnuts are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids. They decrease LDL-cholesterol and risk of excessive clotting. You can add walnuts for example to your yoghurt or have a small amount of them as such.
Blueberries are also called as superfoods because they are packed with antioxidants. Antioxidants lower the risk of heart disease. Blueberries are perfect in a smoothie or with quark.
Oat contains a specific type of fiber known as beta-glucan. This soluble fiber can slow the absorption of cholesterol and decrease LDL-cholesterol. An oatmeal is a good way to start you day.
Combine all these and have a healthy breakfast: oatmeal with chopped walnuts and blueberries!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
