So I am much more of the philosophy of "don't just add years to your life, add life to your years". That being said- here are some tasty routines that can do both:
Fruits and Vegetables
There is just no getting around this - have lots of them. They should take up at least half of your plate at every meal. Try a smoothie for fruit, and placing anything you eat on a bed of greens.
Grate a clove or 2 of raw garlic on to this garlic grater/plate, pour on some olive oil and dip whole wheat bread in - tasty and both heart healthy. Remember - Good Fats vs Bad Fats (olive oil is good) and Good Grains versus Bad Grains (Whole grain is good). Garlic has been shown with good evidence to reduce blood pressure, decrease cholesterol, and even prevent heart attacks. Side effects of improved heart health include decreased dating life health. BUT IT TASTES SO GOOD
Here is the key: not too much, dark chocolate (over 60%) and the only fat in it must be from cocoa butter.
Even one piece (around 1/2 an oz) has been shown to decrease blood pressure by a few points in people who eat it consistently. In women with heart disease, even a few pieces of chocolate per week were found to decrease the risk of developing Congestive Heart Failure. Chocolate does contain lots of saturated fat (bad) but the type of saturated fat in cocoa butter (stearic acid) is mostly converted in to monounsaturated fat (good). Just remember, it does add calories - so limit it to that piece per day.
Fish Oil or Fatty Fish (Salmon, Mackeral)
Ok... not traditionally tasty, but somehow this company has managed to make Fish Oil taste like Starburst. Other customers compare it to a smoothie... check it out yourself on Amazon. If it's just for primary prevention, you don't have to take much, and a dietary supplement might be fine for you. Of note, a recent study did find that increasing levels of Omega 3 fatty acids were associated with prostate cancer. Given how common heart disease is, it may still be worth it to take fish oil - the jury is out here. The safest bet is probably to enjoy some natural salmon - also quite tasty.
Believe it or not, coffee (even decaf) has been strongly associated with a decreased risk of developing diabetes (which by association decreases your risk for heart disease) and invasive prostate Cancer. If you are otherwise healthy, there aren't any problems with even having several cups of coffee per day. Just be sure to leave the cream and sugar out. If you must, use skim milk or soy milk and the smallest amount of sugar possible (try to wean yourself off).
Although we will never know 100% for sure... we can be pretty certain (92.3% at least) that alcohol in moderation can reduce the risk of developing heart disease if enjoyed responsibly on a consistent basis. In fact, it has been shown that people who drink more often (as long as it was 1 or 2 per day or less) have the lowest risks of heart disease and any cause of dying (rates of all-cause mortality). For example, 1 drink per day, every day, is better than 1 drink per day 6 days a week and so on.
There is always the danger of drinking too much - and that is no joke (although you may be able to think of some funny instances in your life which involved this). But seriously, too much in one night can end up in death- either due to alcohol poisoning or an accident. Too much over time and you risk developing high blood pressure, hemorrhagic (bleeding) strokes, breast cancer, and liver disease.
But as long as you can truly drink responsibly, enjoy!
