Healthy Eating Habits = A Healthy Heart

What goes into a healthy heart? Doctors say that with regular exercise and a nutritional diet, you are heading in the right direction. Unfortunately, when people hear “nutritional diet” they get a little intimidated, but they shouldn’t be! So many of the foods you eat every day can actually be good for you, and if there is something that you LOVE but is on the less healthy side, there is probably a substitute that would help to satisfy those cravings.

Here are some ideas for each meal of the day, of the less healthy version and the more healthy option.

Pancakes topped with whipped cream and fruit, a glass of orange juice
Healthy option: Whole-wheat pancakes topped with light cool whip and blueberries, a glass of calcium-fortified orange juice

Steak Sandwich with melted provolone cheese, onions and French fries
Healthy option: Lean Steak salad in balsamic vinaigrette dressing with pita bread on the side and a cup of fruit or an apple

Breaded Chicken parmesan with angel hair pasta, a Caesar salad, and garlic bread
Healthy option: Breaded Chicken parmesan with wheat angel hair pasta, a salad with balsamic vinaigrette, and whole wheat bread (healthy tip: when breading your chicken, use zero calorie spray butter on the chicken instead of oil)

Angel Food cake with whipped cream and berries
Sugar-free Angel Food cake with light cool whip and berries

By eating these healthier meals, your heart will be healthier and you may even lose a few of those unwanted pounds!
