There are a lot of myths about heart health that are still lingering. Heart attacks were considered to be a man’s concern, but after the age of 55, it is the #1 killer of women, so everyone needs to be caring for their heart. That includes families, for young children are showing signs of heart disease which is worrisome. Our health status is the long term cumulation of choices, so it’s best to make every day a day for building health. Once we are in a health crisis, it can take a long time to regain our health, if we haven’t suffered permanent damage. There are the well-known tip for health care such as don’t smoke, avoid eating pop, doughnuts, French fries, fake processed food (Cheetos and pop tarts comes to mind), meats with nitrates…but what are some important strategies for good health?
Here’s a bonus. Limit eating out for special occasions, since it is hard to eat healthy at restaurants who liberally use butter, salt and sugar to make food taste good. If you struggle with home cooked meals, consider a meal service such as Sunbasket that does a lot of the prep work and provides easy step by step directions. (I have tried different services and was most impressed with the quality of their food and their meal selections). And the good news is, dark chocolate that is at least 70% cocoa is heart healthy, just limit the treat to one or 2 squares.
Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful. — John 14: 27
