Diet Plan for Patients of Heart Diseases

  • Fill your platter with more whole foods such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk products, nuts, healthy oils, and foods rich with protein such as fish, legumes and skinless poultry.
  • For cooking, use little amounts of heart friendly oils like olive, corn, safflower, soybean, peanut, sesame and canola oils.
