5 Ways to Heart Friendly Eating
1. Maintain a balanced diet of fruit and vegetables, whole grains and lean meats. Ensure that vegetables fill half of your plate, with one quarter whole grains and the remaining quarter with lean meat.
2. Reduce your fat intake by cutting off visible fats and removing the skin from poultry, use fat-free cooking methods like steaming, poaching, use of non-stick pans or spray oil to reduce the amount of fat (saturated and trans fat) in your diet.
