Chateaubriand Steak Select chicken breast without the skin, ground turkey breast meat, extra-lean red meats with 7% or less fat by weight, and of course, fatty fish such as salmon. The American Heart Association recommends at least 2 servings a week of omega-3 rich seafood to prevent irregular heartbeat (arrhythmias), blood clots, clogged arteries, and high triglyceride levels. The omega-3s also might help reduce inflammation in blood vessels associated with atherosclerosis. If you can’t afford or don’t like fish, are vegetarian, or are concerned about pesticides and mercury in fish, look for foods that are fortified with a plant-based, contaminant-free DHA that also are easy to fit into your daily routine, such as milk, yogurt, bars, juices, etc. Aim for at least 200 milligrams of DHA a day.  Photo credit: Nic Taylor via Compfight
