Oatmeal is a great way to start your day! Add some fresh berries and slivered almonds to your oatmeal for a delicious, heart-healthy breakfast. I love this video from Randa4Health on making a delicious oatmeal trifle with lots of great health tips along the way.

Beans are a super heart healthy food. Fresh green beans and chickpeas are one of my favorites! There are many great recipes for a hearty bean salad that makes a great lunch any day of the week. A favorite of mine is a bit more gourmet, but if you have the time and inclination, try this delicious Chickpea Salad with Tomatoes, Olives, Basil and Parsley from kalynskitchen.com. Go light on the olives to reduce sodium.

Fish is also a super food when it comes to heart health. A personal favorite recipe which combines several super foods is this delicious Bistro-style Salmon with Brothy Beans and Spinach. I found it in the Chicago Tribune food guide a couple years ago and have made it twice since. The second time was just last week. It's hearty, healthy and comforting - a great winter dish!
