As the wife of a heart attack survivor, I found this article very interesting.
Data from the Nurses Health Study keeps pouring in, results are often very interesting.
Here’s the quote I loved:
“For instance, they estimate that swapping one serving of red meat per day for one serving of beans will lower a woman’s long-term heart-disease risk by about one-third. Replacing a daily serving of red meat with one of several other foods — including nuts (30 percent), fish (24 percent), chicken or other poultry (19 percent), and low-fat dairy (13 percent) — will also reduce heart-disease risk, the study found.”
We’re big bean eaters… whoda thunk that heart healthy fare does wonders for the waist line?
