Cardiovascular Nutrition

A healthy diet is your best defense to prevent disease. Cardio Nutrition is oriented around increasing good foods in the diet, while avoiding those that can increase risk of obesity and chronic disease.  Here, you will find handouts, information and recipes that will help you avoid bad fats, sodium, and added sugars, while increasing whole grain foods, lean proteins, and a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables. Healthy eating for cardio health can help to manage cholesterol, blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, and cancer prevention.  

This does not include special dietary concerns such as those for patients with inflammatory bowel disease, or certain food allergies (Celiac is under IBD-AID).
