Go For Fish
Follow the recommendation of the American Heart Association and eat fish at least twice a week. Oily fish such as salmon, halibut, mackerel and albacore tuna are rich in omega-3s, beneficial fats that can help reduce the inflammation that can lead to heart disease. You can also boost your intake of omega-3s with a krill oil, fish oil or a vegetable-based supplement containing high levels of EPA and DHA omega-3s.
