Healthy Hearts Challenge Tip 6: Go Nuts
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.
