Heart Healthy Seafood

American Heart Month is a time when we, as a country, put extra emphasis on spreading awareness about the severity of heart disease, the No. 1 killer of American men and women. The hope is to inspire people to be proactive about their heart health and to encourage them to live a healthier lifestyle. In addition to simply being aware of the ins and outs of heart health, there are many healthy choices we all can make to help prevent life-threatening diseases that can lead to heart attack and stroke. Many small steps can add up to one big journey toward a strong, healthy heart! Here are a few top tips to get you started:

  • Get Up and Move Exercising at least 30 minutes a day will keep your blood pumping and your heart strong. Pro tip: Take things a step further than your scheduled workout by incorporating physical activity throughout other parts of your day. Take the stairs instead of the elevator, go on a quick stroll during your lunch, or implement a five-minute stretch break in the middle of the workday. Little habits can go a long way!
  • Make it the MyPlate Way – Take a tip from MyPlate when planning your meals: Fill half your plate with fruits and veggies, one quarter with heart-healthy protein, and one quarter with whole grains. Pro Tip: Mix it all up! Customizable grain bowls are popular right now, and for good reason. Start with quinoa, add roasted veggies, and top with sautéed shrimp or canned tuna for a delicious, well-balanced meal.
