3. Fatty Fish
Fish like tuna, salmon and sardines have omega-3 fatty acids. Healthy fats increase your “good” cholesterol and lower chronic inflammation.
Studies show that eating fatty fish regularly may prevent the development of high blood pressure and low “good” cholesterol levels. It also lowers the risk of stroke by 27%.
Don’t fry fatty fish. It destroys the good and adds bad fats. If you can’t stand fish, eat nuts (within moderation), flaxseeds and cook with flaxseed oil and soybean oil.
