When it comes to heart health, think about exercise as one important component. Activities that get your heart working—such as climbing stairs, hiking, and biking—are excellent for building heart muscle and keeping it pumping.

But what about eating foods that nurture the heart? Typically, brightly coloured vegetables, oily fish that provide essential omega fatty acids, nuts, legumes, tomatoes, and dark leafy greens provide amazing nutrients for heart health. Add to this list whole grains such as oatmeal, brown rice, spelt, and much more, and you have a broad range of delicious foods that can maximize your heart health.
