Top 5 Foods for a Healthy Heart

 

 Heart disease remains the leading cause of death in the United States, but there are steps you can take to help prevent it.  On important step is to eat a healthy diet. Here are some of our favorite “heart healthy” foods that can easily be added to your daily meals!avocado

 1.       Avocado

This fruit is an excellent source of “good fats” also known as “monounsaturated fats.”  And according to the American Heart Association, when monounsaturated fats are eaten in moderation and used in place of saturated or trans fats (bad fats) they can have a beneficial effect by helping to reduce cholesterol levels in your blood. Avocados also contain nearly 20 essential vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients like fiber, beta carotene, vitamin C, potassium, folic acid, and lutein.  Try these:

  • Puree avocado to make a dip for vegetables or whole-grain chips
  • Slice or dice avocado and toss into a mixed green salad or add to a sandwich

2.       Berries

Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries are not only delicious; they’re also loaded with antioxidants called polyphenols, which have been associated with promoting heart health.  Berries can be eaten fresh, frozen or even dried.  Try these:

  • Add frozen berries to a smoothie for a nutrient boost
    • Toss fresh or dried berries into a mixed green or grain-based salad

3.       Kale

Kale is often coined a “super food” because of its high nutrient content.  Kale contains essential nutrients like calcium and is an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin K.  It also contains potassium, iron, phosphorus and manganese.  Plus kale is a good source of fiber and has been associated with helping to lower blood cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease.¹ 

  • Try kale in a hearty soup made with fresh vegetables and diced potatoes
  • Sauté kale in olive oil with garlic and sundried tomatoes for a side dish idea

4.       Almonds and Walnuts

Packed with nutrition, nuts contain heart-healthy unsaturated fats and other important nutrients like vitamin E and fiber and protein.

  • Add chopped nuts to stir-fry or sprinkle on casseroles
  • Top morning cereal or low-fat yogurt with sliced nuts

5.       Salmon

Fresh, frozen or canned — salmon is an excellent source of protein and heart-healthy omega 3 fatty acids.  Enjoy this delicious fish baked, broiled, grilled, poached or sautéed.

  • Use canned salmon to make fish cakes or burgers for the grill
  • Grill salmon and toss with whole-grain pasta, sundried tomatoes and fresh spinach

 And just because they didn’t make our top 5 list, doesn’t mean there aren’t other great choices. Other heart-healthy foods we love are oatmeal, flax, beans, soy, spinach, broccoli, sweet potatoes, and tomatoes. Actually, most fruits and vegetables, especially dark green and orange varieties, are hearth healthy.  Add these items to your cart and we promise your heart will thank you.  For more heart health information, visit us online at ShopRite.com

Facts about Gluten-Free Eating

What Is Gluten?1st

Gluten is a protein naturally found in certain grains such as wheat, barley, rye and some oats. Foods that are made with these grains also contain gluten – that includes foods like bagels, breads, cakes, cereals, cookies, crackers, pasta, pizza, and more.

Who Should Avoid Gluten?

About three million Americans suffer from a serious medical condition called celiac disease. For someone with this disease, eating gluten-containing foods causes damage to the lining of the small intestine (where foods go after they have been eaten and digested). This damage makes it very difficult for the body to absorb nutrients from foods. Over time this damage can lead to malnourishment and possibly other complications. While there is no cure for celiac disease, the good news is that eating gluten free is the best way to prevent further damage to the small intestine. Gluten may also be avoided by those who are sensitive to it or make a personal choice to avoid it. If you think you have celiac disease, be sure to get tested before starting a gluten free diet.

Health Gluten-Free Eating

Many foods are generally free of gluten, unless it was added in processing. People who follow a gluten-free diet can enjoy a variety of foods, including:

• Plain beef, pork and lamb
• Rice, Wild Rice
• Plain fish and shellfish
• Quinoa
• Plain chicken and turkey
• Lentils
• Plain fruits
• Corn
• Plain vegetables
• Potatoes
• Plain beans
• Soy
• Eggs
• Nuts and seeds
• Milk
• Flaxfoods

 

Knowing What To Look For: Reading LabelsSide

The best way to know if a product is gluten free is to read the ingredients label. To determine if a product contains gluten, there are four key grains to look for:

• Wheat
• Barley
• Rye
• Oats

In addition to these grains, look for these two ingredients:

• Malt
• Brewer’s Yeast

Looking for these grains and ingredients will help you identify products that contain gluten. You need to check labels often. Ingredients can change over time, so checking the ingredients label every time is the most accurate way to identify what is in a food or beverage product. After you have read the label and determined that the product does not contain these obvious sources of gluten, you may always contact the manufacturer to confirm.

Frequently Overlooked Foods That May Contain Gluten

• Broth
• Imitation seafood
• Soy sauce
• Candy
• Marinades
• Thickeners
• Coating mixes
• Processed meats
• Vegetarian meat
• Croutons
• Sauces and gravies substitutes
• Imitation bacon
• Seasoning
