To celebrate American Heart Month and our Healthy Hearts Challenge, every day this week we’re posting a quick tip to help you
eat for a healthier heart. Here’s today’s tip:
Tip 6: Go Nuts.
Nuts are chock-full of vitamins, minerals, heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and low levels of saturated fats. Research
suggests that people who eat nuts—walnuts, pecans, almonds, hazelnuts, pistachios, pine nuts and peanuts (which actually are
legumes)—two to four days or more per week have a lower incidence of heart disease than people who eat them less often.
