I was so, so happy to read all of your positive feedback about my layout. Every single one of your comments made my day. I am extremely glad you like it! I do, too. Thanks again. Your comments mean more to me than you know.
The topic of today’s post is a bit different. There will be less pictures and more words, although I’m trying to keep this fairly short. The other day I was surfing the internet on various health and nutrition sites, and I came across this page: 18 Heart-Healthy Foods You Aren’t Eating. I was a bit curious to see how accurate their claim was (whether or not I was eating those heart-healthy foods), so I checked it out. After scanning through the list, I was pleasantly surprised: I consume almost every food on the list on a regular or daily basis. That made me really happy, and I hope that my heart is happy because of it, too. If you missed it, the foods that are on the list are:
- Whole Grains
- Olive Oil
- Margarine Spreads
I was a little surprised to see margarine spreads on the list; they typically get a bad rap for being icky, processed and unnatural. I don’t eat a lot of margarine, but I do, on occasion, use Smart Balance Light, which is dairy-free. I don’t drink wine, coffee or tea at all, and I obviously don’t eat fish. But pretty much everything else makes a frequent appearance in my diet! I thought that was really cool and it made me want to know…
Question of the Day: What heart-healthy foods do YOU eat? Which ones are your favorites, and which ones do you want to eat more of? I should probably eat more oranges, pistachios and walnuts. I eat lots of pecans, almonds, etc., but not so many walnuts or pistachios. I also eat plenty of apples, blueberries and cherries, but oranges aren’t as typical.
Thanks for reading!
