Along with Valentine’s Day, February marks American Heart Month. This is great time to make small changes that can lead to a lifetime of heart health.
So, for this week’s Foodie Friday, I wanted to share with you my favorite Heart-healthy food… Salmon!
This ocean-going fish is a top choice because it’s rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s have an anti-clotting effect, so they keep your blood flowing. They also help lower your triglycerides (a type of fat that can lead to heart disease).
Aim for at least two servings of oily fish each week, says the American Heart Association. A serving is 3.5 ounces. That’s a little bit bigger than a computer mouse.
Other options: Tuna, trout, sardines, and mackerel.
