Fruit and vegetables are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals and other nutrients. It must be approximately five portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables a day to lower the risk of heart disease.
Protein is essential for growth and repair of the body. Meat, fish, eggs and beans are the good source. Meat is a very good source of protein and vitamin B12. They are also good sources of minerals such as iron, zinc and B vitamins. Try to eat lean cuts of meat and skinless poultry whenever possible to cut down on fat. Oily animal fats and dairy products contribute most to heart problems as it contains LDL (bad) cholesterol.
Fish is another important source of protein, and contains many vitamins and minerals. At least two portions of fish a week, including one portion of oily fish. Either a fresh, frozen or canned, but canned and smoked fish can be high in salt. Oily fish is particularly rich in omega-3 fatty acids.
Eggs, beans and nuts are also great sources of protein and saturated fats but eat in moderation since they contain high levels of fat.
