Brentwood Encourages Heart-Healthy Diets

Did you know that cardiovascular disease is still one of the leading causes of deaths in the United States and the number 1 cause of death globally?

At Brentwood Health Care Center, we want you to take charge of your health and improve your quality of life. The first and the most important step in reducing risks for heart disease is to change your diet, for the better! This means controlling your portion sizes, eating more vegetables and fruits, choosing whole grains, and being able to differentiate between healthy and unhealthy fats. Learning more about nutrition (protein sources, lowering sodium intake) helps to curate healthier food intake and plan better meals.

For more information on heart-healthy diets, visit Mayo Clinic.
And remember, don’t forget to treat yourself!
