Heart Healthy Food
Nuts like walnuts, almonds, pistachios, peanuts are rich in good fats, omega 3, fibre and vitamin E which help maintain blood pressure, lower bad cholesterol, reduce plaque development in arteries.

According to a paper in the Journal of Nutrition (2008), “Nuts are food sources that are a composite of numerous cardioprotective nutrients and if routinely incorporated in a healthy diet, population risk of coronary heart disease would therefore be expected to decrease markedly.” Because they are very rich in calories, it is best to limit their consumption to no more than a handful a day. Have them plain roasted on salads or as a snack. Avoid the salted, caramelised and flavoured ones.
