Make Your Heart the Winner on Super Bowl Sunday
As you prepare your menu for the big game on Sunday, are you putting your heart at risk?
According to dietician Joseph Gonzales in his Daily Journal article, emotional stress combined with a high-fat diet can increase your risk of heart attack and watching the Super Bowl can definitely be tense!
Cardiologist David Frid of the Cleaveland Clinic points out in a recent Health.com article by Matt McMillen that every bite counts! Eating just one meal laden with high-fat Super Bowl favorites can make your blood more likely to clot, leading to heart attack and stroke.
Instead of traditional fatty foods like delivery pizza and hot wings, prepare healthy dishes from each of these categories using the lowest fat ingredients possible and satisfy your cravings while keeping your heart healthy.
