Create a Healthy Eating Plan

Lutheran Health Network - Create a Healthy Eating Plan
  • Add blueberries to the top of your produce list. This fruit is a known disease fighting food because it contains antioxidants and is loaded with fiber and vitamin C.
  • Select salmon when planning your meat and fish purchases. Salmon is an excellent source of protein and contains heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Plan on purchasing foods rich in soy protein, including edamame, soy nuts and tofu. Soy protein boosts heart-healthy fiber, vitamins and minerals.
  • Create a breakfast using oatmeal. The oats in oatmeal are whole grains, which are an excellent source of vitamins, minerals and fiber.
  • Choose spinach among your leafy-green purchases. Spinach is packed with vitamins and minerals including folate and iron.
  • Prepare a list including almonds which contain vitamin E, magnesium, fiber and heart-healthy polyunsaturated fats.
