Infographic: How Does Your Heart Feel About Your Diet?

This infographic entitled "How Does Your Heart Feel About Your Diet?" illustrates and lists 18 heart "deadly" foods and 20 heart healthy foods.  For each food listed, the infographic also provides a short explanation why that particular food is considered to be good or bad for your heart.

Not surprisingly, the foods that made it on the unhealthy, "deadly" list include junk, fast and processed food that is loaded with empty calories, saturated fat, sugar, sodium and refined carbohydrates. These types of foods are strongly associated with not only coronary heart disease, but also with diabetes, obesity, certain cancers and other medical conditions.

Conversely, with the exception of salmon and tuna, all of the other foods on the healthy food list are usually part of a typical, whole-food, plant-based diet: fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains seeds and beans:

Almonds
Almond Milk
Asparagus
Blueberries
Broccoli
Brown Rice
Cantaloupe
Carrots
Dark Chocolate
Flaxseed
Kidney Beans
Oatmeal
Oranges
Spinach
Sweet Potato
Tomatoes
Walnuts

Note that XANGO Juice made it on the heart healthy list.  This is the brand name of a juice made primarily from the Xanthones-rich Mangosteen fruit.
