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.

If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911.
ER wait times are door to clinical professional and can change quickly depending on the urgency of patients that arrive by ambulance. Lutheran Health Network provides care to patients with life-threatening illnesses first.

Because our ER and Urgent Care staffs must treat patients based on the severity of illness or injury, your time is not guaranteed. We will see you as close to your designated time as possible. If your symptoms worsen or you believe you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest Emergency Department as soon as possible.

Patient results may vary. Consult your physician about the benefits and risks of any surgical procedure or treatment.
