Heart Health and Food Choices

Dietary choices can protect your heart from disease as you age.
The Mediterranean Diet offers suggestions for food substitutions to improve your heart health:
  • eat meals based on plants: fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans and nuts
  • substitute herbs and spices for flavor instead of salt
  • restrict meat intake to a couple of times per month, and eat chicken or fish twice a week
  • substitute olive or canola oil for butter
  • choose low-fat/fat-free options for dairy
