“One of the easiest ways to avoid devastating heart disease may be to simply choose a plant-based diet,” writes Karen Asp in a recent story in Everyday Health that covers the 10 Best Heart Healthy Fall Foods. The story quotes Mary Finckenor, RD, with the Dr. Dean Ornish Program For Reversing Heart Disease at the Atlantic Health System in Morristown, New Jersey.

“Not only are plants packed with vitamins and minerals, they also have nutrients like phytochemicals that have anti-inflammatory and cholesterol-blocking properties.”

The foods include:

  • Brussels Sprouts for Antioxidants
  • Pears for Fiber
  • Winter Squash for Antioxidants
  • Clementines for Potassium
  • Sweet Potatoes for Beta-Carotene
  • Pomegranates for Potassium
  • Cauliflower for Vitamin C
  • Green Beans for Carotenoids
  • Beets for Nitrates
  • Apples for Pectin
