Do you want to adopt a heart-healthy diet, but aren't sure where to start? One way to begin is to create a daily meal plan that emphasizes whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and limits high-fat foods (such as red meat, cheese and baked goods) and high-sodium foods (such as canned or processed foods).
Below are two days' worth of heart-healthy menus. Use them as examples of heart-healthy eating.
Day 1 menu:
1 cup cooked oatmeal, sprinkle with 1 tablespoon cinnamon and chopped walnuts
1 cup skim milk
