The article says that it is true that the way to one's heart really is through the stomach. They also suggest we should not worry about what we shouldn't eat, but should focus on what we SHOULD eat. We can make a positive difference for our heart with just upping the intake of a few critical nutrients.
Here are some to consider (all info either quoted or in summary from Better Homes and Gardens Magazine February 2012 page 160)
"Berries Blueberries, Strawberries, Raspberries...they're all heart healthy gems. Out of season, buy them frozen, microwave until warm, and spoon onto oatmeal, crepes and even grilled meat.
Good source of antioxidants, fiber, phytonutrients."
"Chia Seeds They're not just for novelty planters. These tiny seeds are essentially flavorless and don't require grinding, making them an easy addition to anything from rice pilaf to lean burger patties.
Good source of antioxidants, fiber, electrolytes, phytonutrients, unsaturated fats."
"Broccoli Broccoli loses nutrients when boild or left too long in the fridge, so try it steamed or roasted until crisp tender, ideally within a few days of uying it.
Good source of antioxidants, fiber, electrolytes, phytonutrients."
"Fish Get hooked on wild salmon, herring, and rainbow trout, three great catches that are low in containants. To please picky eaters, slip fish into favorite dishes such as tacos.
Good source of antioxidants, unsaturated fats."
More tomorrow (or soon)

Another email to enjoy and share. This came with cute pics.
Now, this is really a cute one...and I’ve not seen it before, either!! That is getting to be a rarity!!!
Lord, help me wash away all my selfishness and
vanity, so I may serve you with perfect humility
through the week ahead.
Dear Lord, help me iron out all the wrinkles
of prejudice I have collected through the years
so that I may see the beauty in others.
Oh God, help me mend my ways so I will not
set a bad example for others.
Lord, help me to dust out all the many faults
I have been hiding in the secret corners of my heart.
Oh God, give me the grace to shop wisely so I may purchase
eternal happiness for myself and all others in need of love.
Help me, my Savior, to brew a big kettle of brotherly
love and serve it with clean, sweet bread of human kindness.
Sunday—The Lord’s Day
Oh God, I have prepared my house for you. Please
come into my heart so I may spend the day and the
rest of my life in your presence.

My sister-in-law runs an online business..and posts a newsletter every Sunday. I enjoyed her closing quote (I don't know the origin).
Quote of the Day - First Thing Every Morning
If you had a bank that credited your account each morning with $86,400-with no balance carried from day to day-what would you do? Well, you do have such a bank...time.
Every morning it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it rules off as "lost" whatever you have failed to use toward good purposes. It carries over no balances and allows no overdrafts. You can't hoard it, save it, store it, loan it or invest it. You can only use it-time.
