In a pinch, frozen will do
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- Help keep your heart healthier by eating plenty of fruits and vegetables.
The American Heart Association offers these shopping suggestions for a heart-healthy diet:
- Buy canned or frozen produce when fresh isn't available. Just make sure these items don't contain added fat, sugar or salt.
- Focus on produce rich in fiber, such as oranges, peas, apples, strawberries, bananas or beans.
- Shop for raw veggies that make for good snacks, such as cherry tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, celery or carrot sticks.
- Skip baked goods in favor of dried, fresh or canned fruits with no added sugar. Limit consumption of fruit juice, which may be lacking in fiber.
