25 Heart-Smart Foods

At first blush, a heart-healthy diet might sound pretty bland: reduced salt, low cholesterol, limited calories, decreased fat. But luckily, there are a variety of foods that are both delicious and healthy, according to the American Heart Association (AHA). The next time you go shopping, look for fresh fruits and vegetables, such as bananas, pomegranates, salad greens, and strawberries, as well as the following heart-smart picks. All of them have earned the AHA's heart-check mark, indicating that they're low in saturated fat and cholesterol and suitable for healthy people above the age of 2.
