Those of you concerned about your health might want to consider investing in a copy of Heartfelt, a new book of more than 100 quick and easy recipes for a healthy heart, compiled by Pippa Middleton and The British Heart Foundation (BHF).
The book will be out from September 29th but you can pre-order your copy if you want to make sure that you get one without having to queue up and be disappointed. All proceeds from the sale of the book will go to fund future research by the BHF.
Not only does the book contain lots of heart-healthy recipes (perfect if you’ve recently had health problems and want to make better lifestyle choices in the future), but it also has lots of healthy eating advice, as well as interviews that Pippa has carried out with people who have suffered from heart conditions but benefited from the research funded by the BHF.
Maintaining a healthy diet can help you reduce your risk of developing coronary heart disease, as well as stop you from putting on weight and reducing the chances of developing high blood pressure and diabetes.
You should try and eat plenty of fruit and veg, aim to eat wholegrain varieties of rice, bread, pasta and potatoes, eat some milk and dairy products, and some meat, eggs, fish and other non-dairy sources of protein. Do your best to only eat small amounts of produce that is high in fats and/or sugar. Aim to eat at least five portions of fruit and veg a day – a portion is about the size of a handful.
