I couldn’t let February pass without mentioning one more time the importance of heart health. Since we here at Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating provide heart-healthy meals, I thought it was important to share tips with you to help you create heart healthy habits year ‘round.
Instead of recreating the wheel, I thought it was best to go to the experts on heart health…The American Heart Association. They have a list called “Life’s Simple 7 ™ .” This list is what we all should strive to live by for improved heart health.
1. Get active
2. Control cholesterol
3. Eat better
4. Manage blood pressure
5. Lose weight
6. Reduce blood sugar
7. Stop smoking
For more heart-health information, as well as the complete “Life’s Simple 7 ™ ,” visit heart.org.
