Heart Healthy Tip
Eat at least 25 grams of fiber daily
Studies link a high fiber diet with a lower risk of heart disease. Soluble fiber in oats, beans and citrus fruits, such as oranges helps reduce bad cholesterol levels. Opting for whole grains, such as brown rice and whole-wheat pasta, boosts your intake of total fiber.
