Healthy eating for a happy heart
A healthy diet can reduce your risk of developing coronary heart disease and stop you gaining weight, reducing your risk of diabetes and high blood pressure2. Even small changes towards a healthy, balanced diet can make a big difference. But, it can be daunting knowing where to start, especially if you’re not wanting to spend hours in the kitchen, or spend a fortune on ingredients!
At Simplyhealth, we dusted off our aprons to test out some of the British Heart Foundation’s heart-healthy recipes, and bring you our recommendations. With cooking often recommended as a mindfulness activity3, getting stuck in and trying new recipes may have a positive benefit for your mental wellbeing. Here are a few tasty favourites, as tried and tested by Simplyhealth employees to get you going!
