Heart Healthy Recipes

by Steffani on April 30, 2018

This week we are celebrating “Heart Week” with The Heart Foundation. The Heart Foundation is a charity dedicated to fighting the single biggest killer of Australians – heart disease.

So how can we keep our heart healthy with nutrition? Here is our top tips:

1. Choose reduced fat diary, such as low fat milk, cheese and yoghurt.

2. Eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables.

3.  Eat a variety of lean protein (trimming fat of meat, and using low fat cooking methods i.e.: grilling/ steaming).

4. Choose healthy fats: nuts and seeds, avocado and olive oil.

5. Avoid adding salt to meals, and choose herbs and spices for flavourings instead.

 

The Heart Foundation has a range of fantastic recipes to aid in helping fight against heart disease.
