Heart health


Eat fish and whole grains for heart health

Did you know that two servings of different types of fish each week can reduce the risk of heart disease? For an easy family meal, make cod nuggets in light breadcrumbs and have a dinner packed with beneficial omega-3 fatty acids. Commit to having at least one serving a week of fatty fish such as salmon or mackerel, as these types of fish contain more omega 3.

Carbohydrates are an indispensable fuel for your body and brain. Just make sure you select whole-grain varieties such as whole-grain pasta, or brown rice. A tasty alternative to white rice is quinoa, as it keeps you fuller for longer and contains fewer carbohydrates, more protein and more fiber – which helps to decrease blood cholesterol. You can also replace white potato fries with air-fried sweet potato fries. Sweet potato contains soluble fiber, which can help to reduce the risk of heart disease. It is also an excellent source of vitamin A, B6 and potassium. Using the Philips Airfyer to cook sweet potatoes keeps them crispy without using a lot of oil.
