February is American Heart Month. Practically daily headlines tell us “a study has found” ________ (insert food) is heart healthy. The most recent example I was asked about was a study on beet juice. While I am not disputing that beet juice can lower blood pressure (in this study with 64 people), no single food is the answer. When clients come in to lower their blood pressure, or have a family history of heart disease, or they simply want their hearts to be healthy, we will discuss multiple foods. Because I only have your attention for a couple of minutes (hopefully) below is my top 10 list for heart healthy foods.
