How do you #GoRedForWomen on National Wear Red Day?
Don’t just wear red today! A diet rich in red fruits and veggies can boost heart health. While red meat can increase your risk of cardiovascular disease, there are tons of red plant foods that’ll keep your heart healthy! Fruits & veggies like tart cherries, tomatoes, red lentils, beets & strawberries. Check out the Go Red For Women website for more information.
These five red foods can help ward off heart disease:
- Tomatoes: Tomatoes are packed with potassium, which is a mineral that helps to balance blood flow and lower blood pressure. Diets rich in potassium can lower the risk of stroke by 12 percent. An easy way to get a serving of tomatoes? Try our powered-up pasta.
- Raspberries: Berries contain anthocyanins, which are colorful pigments that protect our cells, including those that support cardiovascular health. Daily fruit consumption may decrease the risk of heart disease by as much as 40 percent. Add berries to your oatmeal or even on top of your vegetables with our steamed asparagus with raspberry sauce.
- Red Lentils: Lentils are packed with cholesterol-lowering fiber. One study found that heart attack survivors who added fiber to their diet lowered their risk of a recurrence by 35 percent. Try our lentil artichoke stew!
- Red Chard: Red chard, like other greens, is packed with vitamins and antioxidants that can protect the cardiovascular system. Add chard to soup or try this chard salad!
- Red Quinoa: Whole grains, like quinoa, may have a protective effect against cardiovascular disease. One major meta-analysis found that those who consume the most whole grains have the lowest risk for heart disease. Try our quinoa pilaf!
