Try these healthy snacks in place of high-fat, high-sodium, or sugar-laden choices:
- Serve a selection of higher-fiber crackers with hummus, and raw vegetables with low-fat dressing in place of chips and dip or other foods that are high in saturated fat.
- A bowl full of unsalted nuts has heart-healthy unsaturated fat and couldn't be simpler.
- Limit soda consumption, or better yet, drink unsweetened tea or another sugar-free choice in its place.
- Drink alcohol in moderation. The recommendation typically is for no more than one drink per day for women and two drinks for men.
