According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), various forms of heart disease affect approximately seventy million Americans. Any heart-healthy diet should include fish, which contains omega-3 fatty acids that may lower your risk for heart disease. Healthy fish include salmon, tuna, and mackerel. You can also get omega-3s from walnuts, chia seeds, and flaxseeds. Try to eat foods that are rich in soluble fiber. Such foods include oats, kidney beans, peas, apples, oranges, and carrots.
