Nuts and seeds are good for your heart

Nuts actually have heart-healthy fat. Yes I said it — heart-healthy fat! They have monounsaturated fats as well as vitamins and minerals. According to research studies, people that eat nuts two to four days per week have lower incidence of heart disease. So eat walnuts, almonds, pine nuts, brazil nuts — whatever kind you like.

The great thing about these categories of foods is that there are so many different types in each category that you can enjoy varieties your favorite foods every day.
