Avocados are brimming with monounsaturated fats and countless heart-healthy nutrients, which is why they are excellent at reducing LDL or bad cholesterol levels and increasing good or HDL cholesterol levels.
They are delicious, hearty and extremely healthy for the heart as they encourage the absorption of the carotenoids, particularly lycopene and beta-carotene, which are vital to boost the health of the heart.
Fix yourself a delicious avocado and spinach sandwich, and you can also add these delights to your salads, sea foods and even baked delights.
Lentils, kidney beans, chickpeas and black beans are one of the richest sources of fiber offered by nature. They are also brimming with heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, soluble fiber, and calcium.
You can fix yourself a colourful bean salad, or a spicy bowl of hummus perhaps.
