Foods For A Healthy Heart

Saturated fats have been shown to raise blood cholesterol levels into the danger zone. Just as important is what you should be eating. For heart health and longevity, you should eat:

Plenty of fruits and vegetables: Plant-based foods are abundant in fiber and many vitamins and minerals. Packed with nutrients, they’re also relatively low in calories. Studies consistently show that diets plentiful in fruits and vegetables help people maintain a healthy weight and protect against cardiovascular disease.

Whole grains: Like fruits and vegetables, whole grains pack a lot of nutrition into a low-calorie package. Grains like oats and barley are also rich in a long list of disease-fighting compounds.

Nuts: For too long, nuts were banished from the list of healthy foods because they’re high in fat. They are. But the fat they contain is mostly unsaturated, which protects against heart disease.

Dark chocolate: Dark chocolate? That’s right. Researchers now think that high blood pressure and heart disease are exceedingly rare among residents of the San Blas islands because they eat chocolate, and lots of it. Components in dark chocolate called polyphenols are believed to lower blood pressure and improve the flexibility of blood vessels.

A Teaspoonful of Vinegar

Most people suffer from high blood pressure, an suncontrollable high blood pressure  can result to kidney failure. In cases where your blood pressure spirals out control, a teaspoonful of vinegar may help stabilize your high blood pressure, but you’ll need to consult your physician.

Young At Heart Poetry Vol 4 – I-U-UR

I hear your footsteps distance away

I see your face in my sleep, whenever you call my name

I feel your breath in the wind of the night, until sunshine

I hear gossip uttered, while truth waits in time and place

I say you feel nothing, because promises were broken, even fools wonder because they know better

You cause the tsunami of your sweetness to awake my sub-conscious

You unveil the child in me, like a new born, I feel a rebirth taking place

You talk my worries away into the land of no return

You watch over me, when I sleep in your arms

You say you feel nothing because promises were broken, even fools wonder because they know better

Your innocence is without compromise

Your love like lava solidifies every thing in it’s path

Your aura can be compared to the seven wonders of the world

Your caring and nurturing nature is without a doubt

Your heart skip a bit, when I tell you I miss you

Your heart feels nothing, because promises were broken,  even fools wonder because they know better
