This list of 5 Heart Healthy foods is taken from Dr. Weil – notice that ALL of them are not only vegetarian/vegan but they are also raw vegan… Here’s to our health!

  1. Nuts, especially almonds, walnuts and cashews, contain heart-healthy monounsaturated fat. Eat a moderate portion every day.
  2. Whole soy protein. If you substitute whole soy protein, such as edamame or tofu, for animal protein each day, you can lower levels of homocysteine, a toxic amino acid linked to increased risk of heart disease.
  3. Fresh garlic. This medicinal herb may help lower cholesterol levels. Use one or two raw or lightly cooked cloves a day.
  4. Green tea. It provides EGCG, a polyphenol than may help to moderate inflammation and lower cholesterol. Substitute a cup of heart-healthy green tea for your morning coffee or afternoon soda.
  5. Soluble fiber. It has a powerful cholesterol-lowering effect. Beans, legumes and whole grains are good sources to add to your diet – aim for one or two servings per day.
