Eat real food, mostly plants

When it comes to good food for your heart, the truth is out there but you have to be a super sleuth to find it. Tall tales and slick marketing loom large in the public domain. Here’s some advice you can trust.

Real food, mostly plants

We know for sure that a plant-based diet is best for heart health and longevity. Vegetables, whole grains, legumes, fruits, nuts and seeds reign supreme.

Animal foods such as meat and dairy should not be ruled out, but must take their place as support acts rather than the main event on our dinner plates. Most of the time, meat should be lean.
