In a recent study, adults who ate 3 cups a week cut both total and bad cholesterol by 7 points.
TRY:Crunchy chickpeas: Rinse and dry chickpeas, spray lightly with oil and spices; bake until golden brown.
2. Canned wild salmon
It contains heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids and fewer pollutants, like PCBs, than farmed.
TRY:Light salmon salad: Blend with olive oil, lemon juice, dill, and capers; use in sandwiches and salads.
3. Artichoke hearts
They have inulin, a prebiotic fiber that boosts gut health and may even help control appetite.
TRY:Mediterranean artichoke omelet: Sauté garlic, drained artichokes, and spinach for omelet filling; top with crumbled feta and oregano.
4. Diced fire-roasted tomatoes
Processed tomatoes are richer in the skin-protecting antioxidant lycopene than fresh.
TRY:Pasta with a kick: Sauté onion, red-pepper flakes, garlic, tomatoes, oregano, parsley, and basil. Toss with whole grain penne.
The antioxidant betanin may prevent cancer and heart disease.
TRY:Beet, walnut, and greens salad: Top baby arugula with beet slices; sprinkle with goat cheese, walnuts, and balsamic vinaigrette.
