February is “heart healthy” month. Take a brief moment to evaluate yours. Whether you have genes on your side or not, you can take a preventative stand with the factors that you can control - exercise, lifestyle stress, and diet.

Here are a few ways to add a few heart healthy foods into your weekly routine that will help improve overall health and reduce your risk for heart disease.
Beans and legumes (soybeans, peas, black beans, kidney beans, to name a few): try adding them to salads, soups, or stir-fries
Fish (salmon, tuna, sardines, mackerel): all high in omega-3 fatty acids which have been shown to help reduce cholesterol and inflammation
Nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans, pistachios, etc): throw sliced almonds into your salad or add a tablespoon or two in your yogurt or oatmeal
Onions, scallions, shallots, garlic, and leeks: add these into the pan with an array of vegetables and a bit of olive oil and you have a fantastic accompaniment to any meal
Green or black tea: rich in antioxidants like polyphenols, these beverages are a warm addition to any cold winter day
Chia and flax seeds: Grounded, these seeds are a great source of omega-3 fats and fiber. Try them atop your oatmeal or added into a smoothie
