“explanation”: “While both buoy your consumption of heart-healthy fats, half an avocado has fewer calories and less total saturated and polyunsaturated fats than two tablespoons of peanut butter.

“explanation”: “The good news: Yogurt is great for your heart regardless of your preferred consistency. A 2013 study in Nutrition Research found that yogurt consumption was associated with lower triglyceride and glucose levels, and systolic blood pressure. But Greek yogurt has the added dietary bonus of having almost twice as much protein as its traditional counterpart, plus half the sugar. The AHA recommends choosing plain or low-sugar yogurt varieties over those high in added sugars. “,

A 2015 study in the Annals of Internal Medicine found that while moderate red wine consumption did reduce lipid (fat) levels, both red and white wine consumers showed improvement in glucose regulation. But excessive alcohol consumption has been linked to high blood pressure, stroke, obesity and heart failure. If you drink, do so in moderation (no more than one drink a day for women and two for men). “,

But choosing fish twice a week will provide you with the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids u2014 EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) u2014 that have been associated with an increase in HDL (good) cholesterol, a reduced risk of coronary atherosclerosis, and lower triglyceride levels, blood pressure and heart rate.”,

A 2010 study in the medical journal Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology, a journal of the American Heart Association, found that heavy black-tea drinkers (six or more cups a day) experienced a 36 percent reduced risk of heart disease when compared with people who drank less than a cup of tea per day. But if youu2019re a committed java junkie, thereu2019s no reason to ditch your latte just yet. Coffee drinkers who had two to four cups a day also saw a 20 percent decrease in heart disease. “,

“explanation”: “The official American Heart Association stance on your barbecue menu is that you should try and find a nice grilled chicken breast or lean turkey burger and give your poor heart a break. But AARP knows youu2019re not always your own grill master. If the menu is limited to old-school classics, youu2019re better off choosing the burger (a small one). While an average burger does pack a bit more of a caloric punch than a hot dog, itu2019s also packed with more protein and doesnu2019t contain those pesky nitrates hot dogs have.
