Ground Turkey

Ground turkey may be a favorite in many households, but don’t let the 85% lean label trick you! A 3-ounce portion may contain 12.5 grams of fat. Look for alternatives for your recipe!

For example, go for ground turkey breast, a much healthier alternative for your heart. Still, you should watch out for your portion size. The best thing you can do is pick turkey or beef that’s 90% lean.

In addition, make sure your meal contains a host of healthy vegetables, and don’t forget to snack on fruits in between meals.

Mashed Potatoes

You can’t go wrong with a mashed potatoes side dish… except when it comes to your heart’s health. Here’s the thing, it wasn’t the potato we should fear but rather the ingredients that haven’t made their way into the dish’s name.

We’re talking about all the things that make mashed potatoes delicious, cream, butter, whole milk, sour cream, or cream cheese. All of these could turn any dish into a ticking time bomb that will deposit straight in your heart.

Whether you’re eating out or cooking dinner at home, opt for a baked potato. You can top it with salsa, low-fat sour cream, or vegetables for some added crunch and color. Go easy on the salt, too!
