Fareway Foods Registered Dietitian, Whitney Hemmer joined us with some reminders for heart health and healthy choices for everybody that would fit into any lifestyle and make everybody a little bit healthier.
- Choose whole grains and whole wheat products over refined grains (things like white rice and white bread).
-Whole wheat bread, oatmeal, have fiber that can really help lower your cholesterol. Make sure you are eating 25 to 35 grams a day.
-Reduce your sodium intake. Taking the salt off the table, and using spices like Mrs. Dash and other salt free sodium free herbs and spices can help.
- Get your 5 to 9 servings of fruit and vegetables a day, every day.
