Valentine's Day is only two weeks away, so it's time to focus on something very important -- our hearts! Not only do they literally keep us alive, but they also symbolize our love and affection for those around us, so we want to leave a vital reminder about cardiovascular health. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in America, resulting in about 647,000 deaths per year, and a lot of that has to do with diet and how we treat our bodies.
Here are some of the best heart-healthy foods you can eat:
3. Whole grains
4. Fatty fish / fish oil
8. Dark chocolate
10. Olive oil
12. Grean tea
In addition to eating healthy, prioritize regular exercise and eliminate habits such as smoking. We all want to live long, healthy lives so we can spend many more Valentine's Days with our loved ones -- so give your heart some love first!
