New month, new motivation! February is Heart Health Month and what better way to celebrate it than to live it. As we strive to live heart healthy this month, let's get a better understanding of how we can fight this deadly disease. Development and progression of heart disease can be caused by many different factors such as smoking, high blood pressure, diabetes and genetics. Another serious underlier of heart disease is chronic inflammation. Inflammation is linked with obesity, physical inactivity and atherosclerosis, the buildup of fatty cholesterol on the artery walls. The good news? We can lower inflammation through adjusting our daily diet. By eating an anti-inflammatory diet and being physically active, we can prevent and fight this deadly disease together! 

Try incorporating some anti-inflammatory foods into your favorite recipes! Not sure what foods are considered anti-inflammatory?  Here are a few anti-inflammatory foods that can be super versatile in the kitchen: 
  • Spinach 
  • Asparagus
  • Green Peppers
  • Peaches
  • Berries
  • Quinoa
  • Thyme
  • Paprika 
  • Cilantro
  • Green Tea
