Take it to Heart: Eating for Heart Health

Want to eat for heart health but can’t remember those long lists of heart healthy foods? Then you need to try Fat Fish Fiber Fruit™, the easy effective way to eat for your heart! Pick some up today!

Everyone knows that fruit is good for you: fruit has antioxidants like flavenoids and lycopene that lower blood pressure and fight disease. But did you know that the best fruit is Fiber Fruit? Fiber Fruit has lots of spongy fiber that soaks up cholesterol in the digestive track and bulldozes it out the back door. But wait, there’s more! The best Fiber Fruit is Fat Fish™ brand Fiber Fruit!

fat fish fiber fruit 1Fat Fish™ is the leading producer of unsaturated fat (both mono and poly styles) which your heart craves. Fat Fish™ also gives your body plenty of Omega-3 fatty acids to reduce plaque buildup and triglyceride fat in the arteries, slightly lower blood pressure, and reduce the risk of irregular heart beat. But wait, there’s more!

Fat Fish Fiber Fruit™ comes in a variety of flavors like blueberry, strawberry, raspberry, orange, grapefruit, avocado, tomato, and more! Look for our new and improved line of Leafy Green* Fat Fish Fiber Fruit™, full of the fiber and antioxidants you’ve come to love! (*Technically not a fruit.)

 

Disclaimer: Fat Fish Fiber Fruit™ may misleadingly sound like only fruit is good for your heart. This is not the case, however the FDA (Foundation of Dorky Authors) knows that alliteration and silliness cause memory increase. Side effects include retention of information and possible giggling while grocery shopping. The boring breakdown is as follows:

fat fish fiber fruit 2Fat: Eat good fats (i.e. mono-unsaturated or poly-unsaturated) like those found in nuts, avocados, and some fish. If the fat comes from a plant, it’s good. If it comes from a land animal (cheese, bacon, red meat, etc) it’s bad and should be limited and savored.

Fish: Omega-3 fatty acids abound in salmon, sardines, mackerel, walnuts, ground flax seed, and chia seeds. Too many to remember? Pick one and start eating it.

Fiber: Whole grains are good for your heart because they are plants and therefore full of fiber. Whole grain bread and pasta count too, even if you can’t see the grains; tiny fiber fits in your arteries just fine. Legumes (beans, lentils, peas) have fiber and protein which is a nice bonus.

Fruit: Any fruit or vegetable is good for your heart. They all include vitamins, nutrients, and fiber. Berries and leafy greens have more antioxidants, but any edible plant is a plus for your heart.

 

Not satisfied with FFFF (Fat Fish Fiber Fruit™)? Feel free to invent your own product to fit your tastes! Simply select one heart healthy food from each category of good fats, omega-3s, fiber, and antioxidants. Here are a few to get you started:

W-WoBBle: Walnuts, Walnuts, Beans and Berries

OFLS: (whether pronounced “Awfuls” or “Offals”, it’s memorable) Olive oil, Flax, Lentils, Strawberries

ASPT: (as in “she aspt her doctor about heart health) Almond, Sardine, Peas, Tomato

ACHOO: Avocado, CHia, Oatmeal, Orange

 

But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop. Luke 8:15
