Avocados – Provides heart-healthy monounsaturated fat.

Tomatoes – Good source of lycopene, an antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage and also may help lower bad cholesterol.

Oily Fish (Salmon, Tuna, or Herring) – The American Heart Association recommends having oily fish twice a week, which lowers the risk for fatal heart disease

Dark Leafy Greens – Provides fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

Fresh Fruit – Lowers blood pressure, as well as keeps you hydrated on hot summer days.

Dark Chocolate – Good source of flavonol, which relaxes arteries and increases blood flow causing lower blood pressure. However, it must contain 70% cocoa.

Nuts (Walnuts, Pistachios, and Almonds) – Provides Omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, Vitamin E, and folate, all of which promote healthy hearts.

Veggies (Broccoli, Cauliflower, and Brussel Sprouts) – Broccoli contains calcium which is reduces blood pressure. Cauliflower is high in fiber, and contains allicin, which lowers the risk of heart attacks and reduce cholesterol. Brussel Sprouts reduce inflammation in the cardiovascular system and improve blood vessel health.
