Low Carb Heart Healthy Cooking

Aug 7, 2008
Before cooking meat, select portions of meat, which have minimum fat. On the other hand, if you have chosen parts with meat, cut out those parts, which contain meat. Another substitute for meat is fish. Fish does contain fats, but it is low in saturated fats. In addition, fish oil is good for health. You can eat baked, boiled, or grilled fish.

Crawfish and shrimps contain higher levels of cholesterol than other seafood, but they have low saturated fats. In addition, instead of non-vegetarian food, you can switch to vegetarian food, to completely cut down the calories and fats. Try beans, mushrooms, salads, home made low fat salad burgers to cut down the fat. Try cooking vegetables with less oil for heart healthy meals. Cut down excessive use of salt in the food so that the sodium levels in the blood remain stable. Use more of heart healthy herbs and spices to make the food even tastier. Follow this heart healthy diet to live longer.

Here are a few more recipes for a carbohydrate addict's heart healthy diet. Try boiled Brussels sprouts sprinkled with finely chopped onion, salt, pepper and a dash of lemon. It is not only tasty but also nutritious. If you are ordering starters in a restaurant, which constitute of breads made from white flour, go for whole wheat bread instead. White flour bread has nothing but carbohydrates, which your body does not need. Again, instead of eating white rice eat brown rice, which is healthier. Make sandwiches out of salad leaves instead of bread. Cut down on wafers, crackers and all other junk foods. If you follow this heart healthy diet, your cholesterol levels will be back to normal in no time.

Eating heart healthy foods will also help in weight loss. As you cut down on calories and saturated fats and switch over to foods to keep your heart healthy, your weight will also be balanced. For all those diabetic patients out there, here are some diabetic heart healthy recipes. You can make carrot cake with raisins, nuts, etc. which is by the way very nourishing. A heart healthy chocolate cake recipe would me a chocolate cake stuffed with pieces of carrots, apples, etc.

If you don't want your kids to have heart problems in the future, try educating them since childhood about the importance of eating healthy foods. Some heart healthy activities for kids could be quizzes, which educate them about the right foods, the importance of exercise etc.
