We get a lot of questions about the paleo diet!  People are busy and don’t want to spend the time recipe hunting. I have compiled a list of some of my favorite recipes that will help keep your arteries clean.  The Top 11 Foods to Prevent Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is another amazing resource regarding foods for heart health.

When it comes to health issues, especially heart health, prevention is the best approach. The first step in prevention is consuming nutrient dense, organic, GMO free foods. Enjoy these recipes and don’t be afraid to experiment!

Grass Fed Beef: Saturated fat does not increase your risk of heart disease. It is a complete source of protein full of beneficial nutrients including healthy omega 3 fats

Kale: Kale is a great source of fiber which will improve lipid profile. It contains vitamin C and sulforaphane (shown to prevent cancer) and is a great antioxidant.

Beets: Beets contain nitrites, reduce the risk of heart disease and normalize blood pressure.

They are loaded with antioxidants, are a natural blood thinner as well as aid in reducing homocysteine.

Wild Salmon: Don’t skimp on your Omega 3’s! EPA and DHA lower the risk of heart disease and improve heart rhythm. If you don’t like fish, supplement with a high quality fish oil.

Avocados: Avocados are high in potassium and fiber and also contain vitamin C and magnesium. Potassium is crucial because it plays a role in the muscle contractions of the heart and Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant.

Almonds: Almonds are heart healthy. They are high in Vitamin E and have been shown to reduce the risk of strokes or heart attacks. Always make sure you are sprouting your nuts.

Broccoli: Broccoli is teeming with antioxidants which fight free radicals.

Eggs: It has been said that eggs are one of nature’s most perfect foods. Eggs raise HDL to fight heart disease and despite “popular” opinion they do not cause heart attacks. They are also high in choline which is great for the brain.

Olive Oil: Olive oil contains high levels of monounsaturated fats which are heart healthy, anti-inflammatory and anti-hypertensive.

Do we need a recipe for olive oil? I think not. Drizzle it on anything and everything!

Happy Cooking!
