- Heart Month: Patient Education and Nutritious Recipes February 4, 2015
February is American Heart Month. According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States; one in every three deaths is the result of heart disease and stroke, equal to 2,200 deaths per day.
In an effort to promote awareness, I have compiled useful information to help my patients learn how to protect themselves from heart disease and stroke by understanding the risks and taking the following steps:
Try to be physically active for as few as 30 minutes a day to:
– Improve your cholesterol profile
– Lower your blood pressure
– Increase your energy and stamina
– Boost your bone strength
– Prevent weight gain
– Enhance your mental well-being
Heart-Healthy foods to include on every shopping list: Incorporate these foods – high in vitamin, minerals and nutrients – into your diet to help decrease the risk of heart disease and other conditions.
– Salmon, fish & fish oil – Sweet potatoes
– Almonds & walnuts – Apples
– Berries (especially blueberries) – Avocado
– Garlic – Spinach
– Broccoli – Tomatoes
– Olive oil – Beans
– Eggs – Dark chocolate (in moderation)
To incorporate these heart-healthy foods into your diet, consider the following recipes:
(Click the name of the recipe to receive the necessary ingredients and cooking instructions).
Soup: Mexican Chicken Soup
Side Dish: Mediterranean Couscous Salad with Chickpeas
Main Dish: Crunchy-Crusted Salmon Fillets
Dessert: Banana Split Berry Yogurt Parfait
We are making enormous progress in the battle against cardiovascular disease and stroke – the CDC reports a 30% decrease in death rates in the last decade. At its heart: an increased awareness about healthy living. February is a perfect time to recharge your personal prevention plan…consider me your partner wholly dedicated to keeping your heart at its vital, healthy best.Continue reading →
