The number of cases of young adults suffering from heart trouble has seen a sharp rise in the last few years, and this trend only goes to indicate how much we are lacking in terms of taking good care of our heart. Our lifestyle habits, stress, anxiety and a bad diet can often affect our heart health. While a bad diet can put your heart at risk, a good diet can help in protecting your heart.
According to Bangalore-based nutritionist Dr. Anju Sood, "For a meal to be heart-friendly one must ensure three factors. First, the ingredients used should have a low glycemic index. Second, it should be low on saturated and trans fats and thirdly, it should have decent amount of protein." You can start by making small tweaks to your daily diet like cutting down on processed junk, taking whole grain, or replacing red meat with fish and chicken. Macrobiotic Nutritionist and Health Practitioner Shilpa Arora suggests a few options that you can try for a heart-healthy dinner.
