You can't live without your heart, so it only makes sense to take care of this vital organ. You probably know you should avoid eating too many deep-fried foods or living on a diet of steak. What can you eat to benefit your heart health? 

Your body needs certain nutrients to keep your ticker pumping away. Choosing the right combinations of foods can nourish your heart and keep you feeling your best. Many of these have additional benefits, too — so you have the perfect reason to grab your fork.

1. Fatty Fish 

Did you know that the American Heart Association recommends eating at least two servings of fish per week? Fish such as salmon is high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are critical to heart health. Heart disease rates are typically lower in Asian nations, where fish is a significant dietary staple. 

Exercise caution if you're pregnant, though. Some varieties of fish, like mackerel, contain high levels of mercury that could harm your developing fetus. Stick to choices like canned tuna and catfish. 



2. Dark, Leafy Greens

You might have heard that you should eat more kale — but do you know why? Dark, leafy greens are nutritional powerhouses. They're chock-full of vitamins and nutrients, including those that benefit your heart.
