Checklist: Nutrition How-To’s, Part 1

alt

Eat an anti-inflammatory diet like the one found in the Anti-Inflammatory Diet section. This common sense eating plan addresses the many diseases and illnesses associated with inflammation, including heart disease.

alt

Use extra-virgin olive oil as your main cooking oil and as a replacement for butter or margarine at the table. The monounsaturated fat found in olive oil is good for your cholesterol profile, and can help lower your risk of heart disease.

alt

Reduce your intake of saturated fat - which can contribute to high cholesterol. Cut back on whole-fat dairy foods like cheese, cream and milk, as well as red meat.

alt

Add vegetarian protein to your meals.  Whole soy contains phytonutrients which have been shown to help prevent heart disease and several forms of cancer. Ask for marinated tofu or soybeans on a salad, order an edamame appetizer, and opt for the veggie burger when you have the choice.
