                         Having a healthy and strong heart is necessary to
                         live a healthy and long life because heart is the
                         center of the body which pumps blood which
                         brings nutrition around each part of the body. But
                         the truth is that many people don't protect their
                         heart properly because they won't realize how
                         important the heart is until they suffer from heart
diseases. I hope you can start looking after your heart after reading this
article.

In addition to doing increasingly heavy-duty exercises, what we eat
matters to the health of each part of the body including the heart. That is
where the heart healthy recipes step in. It is helpful to learn what you eat
and educate yourself about what foods are healthy. In this way, we can
incline to the healthy ones and stay away from those that are not healthy.

Risk Factors for Heart Diseases
High cholesterol, obesity and high blood pressure are three of the major
factors that cause the incidence of a damaged heart. So what we can do is
to stop eating those foods or ingredients that might cause them and to eat
more heart healthy food that can help to put them under control. Salt and
sugar are two of the things that should eat less of if you want to maintain
the absolute health of the heart.

Eat more Fish
Fish from deep sea, such as herring, sardines and salmon, are very good
for our heart because they contain Omega 3 fatty acids which can help to
get our cholesterol levels back to normal. Also we don't have to worry
much about growing fat by eating plenty of fish, either. So fish is always a
food that is highly recommended even if you don't have deep sea fish
available.

Edible Fiber
Another element that is known to reduce the cholesterol levels is edible
fiber. It can be found in whole grain products. It can also help to control
the absorption of sugar as well. This will also keep our digestive system
healthy.

Healthy Cooking Methods
It would be better to bake a fish than frying it. Steamed vegetables will
maintain their nutrients better than other cooking methods.

Stir frying and sauting are also very healthy methods that help to prepare
foods that are good for the heart. It has to be mentioned that the oils used
for the cooking are very important. Personally, I would like to stay away
from butter and even coconut oil because of their content of saturated fat.
But olive oil and canola oil would be the perfect choices
