5 Superfoods For Your Heart
Keeping your heart healthy is as much about putting the right nutrients
to your body as it is about keeping the wrong substances
Foods that contain saturated fats, salt and high levels of processed sugar are all "No-no's" (as is smoking). If you are concerned about your heart, eating well and avoiding the above foods and toxins may help. Eating more of the below 5 superfoods for a healthy heart may also be of benefit to overall heart health. Looking after your heart is serious business. As this article is being written, heart disease is the leading underlying cause of death in Australia.
If you have serious concerns about heart health, talking to your doctor should be your first step. Eating the foods below may help support your heart, but just eating these foods and neglecting other lifestyle factors that can contribute to heart problems will not guarantee a healthy heart.
5 Superfoods For Your Heart
Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which can help reduce your risk of heart disease according to the Australian Heart Foundation. Omega-3 may also help reduce inflammation of blood vessels and reduce blood clotting.

2. Chia Seeds
are - like salmon - rich in omega-3. In fact, on a pund-for-pound basis, chia seeds contain more omega-3 than salmon. Furthermore, chia seeds are rich in fibre. Diets high in fibre can reduce the risk of heart disease.

3. Tofu and/or Soy Milk
Both of these food sources contain niacin, folate, calcium magnesium and potassium. These nutrients are crtitical to help support the heart.

ntioxidants can thus protect our body from the inflammation. Inflammation can be an aggravating factor in heart disease. Preliminary studies also suggest acai

You may have heard of studies that suggest a potential link between daily (dark) chocolate consumption and heart health. This link is likely because dark chocolate (60-70% cocoa) is rich in polyphenols: substances that can help reduce clotting, blood pressure and inflammation. What you may not know is that dark chocolate, and the cocoa used to make it, are actually the nutritionally inferior by-products of
raw cacao. Raw cacao
is rich in a number of nutrients that are critical for supporting heart health. It is the base ingredient used to make cocoa / dark chocolate (cacao is processed and cooked to turn it into cocoa, whihc is then processed further to create dark chocolate. This processing and cooking destroys much of the original nutritional content, so choosing cacao over cocoa is a good idea).

The Superfoods way with Ripe Journal
Share your blogging journey with us. When did it begin and why did you decide to start?
Well, I never thought I would end up a blogger - it was never on my mind. I fought with the idea for a whole year before I actually launched it. I’ve always loved eating and sharing meals with friends and family. The more I went out and tried something I would “check in on Facebook” and after a few minutes, I would get so many comments. Then people started to call or message me asking me where they should go and eat, new coffee spot/dessert spot…or a nice place to take their girlfriend/boyfriend to. All this food talk got me thinking, maybe I should start a food blog. It was 2013 and food blogs where everywhere, and they all looked the same. I knew I wanted mine to stand out and I didn't want it to look like every other food blog out there. I also,had to think ahead and visualise what this "blog" would look like in a few years and I knew I didn't just want it to be about food, I wanted to eventually talk about travel and lifestyle, So I needed a name for my blog. I chose “Ripe” because it means seasonal, or picked at its peak, when its fresh - and thats what I wanted to offer. Ripe Journal was launched in September 2013. But, the crazy thing was, I didn’t even own a camera.
Outside of creating beautiful content for your followers, what are you most passionate about in life?
Travelling - I’m always in constant wanderlust and planning my next adventure. Another one is being involved my local church community.
What is your daily health, wellness and fitness routine?
It's changed quite dramatically recently as I’ve just started my 8 week journey of I Quit Sugar, so I’ve been following a dedicated meal plan, packed with veg and protein which I’m really enjoying, but I’m seriously craving doughnuts all the time. In terms of fitness, I usually hit the gym 2-3 times a week.
What’s your favourite way to utilise Super Foods to help you get through a busy day?
I find mixing the Super Food powder with water, in a smoother, or over my yogurt in the morning is definitely the easiest way to boost your nutrition and vitamin intake. For more info or to follow Ripe Journal -

3 Superfoods For Weight Loss
Rest assured this isn't going to be one of those "One Weird Tip For Burning Belly Fat" articles that tries to get you to hand over personal details or provide credit card details. Whilst there are a number of purported 'superfoods' out there that claim to help burn more fat, the following list of
superfoods and their claims for weight loss are actually, you know, based in reality.
Superfoods For Weight Loss
1. Chia Seeds
promote weight loss in a number of ways, but most importantly due to their high fibre and protein content. Increasing your fibre intake can help with weight loss in two ways. Firstly, because
fibre is digested quite slowly: it provides a sustained energy release so that your body is less likely to store it as fat. Secondly,
fibre is not digested by the body, yet helps promote a feeling of fullness which can help limit serving size and reduce snacking. The fibre in chia seeds can also help maintain blood sugar levels - also important for weight loss.
2. Coconut Oil
is a fat. Traditionally, when trying to lose weight, we have been told to avoid fat. This thinking is changing. Including healthy fats in our diet and letting our body become used to using those healthy fats as a fuel source is an increasingly important part of many modern weight loss ideologies. Coconut Oil in particular is an interesting weight loss fat - it is full of medium chain triglycerides, or 'MCTs' (most foods contain long chain triglycerides - 'LCTs'). MCTs are digested differently to LCTs, and this seems to offer greater fat loss properties. One study on coconut oil's weight loss effect showed that participants using coconut oil lost more weight than other participants using olive oil. A further study showed that coconut oil may lead to increased burning of calories throughout the day - coconut oil appears to have increased metabolism. Look for a cold pressed, organic coconut oil like
Super Coconut Oil
to ensure maximum flavour, purity and potency.
3. Soy Protein
It isn't sexy or glamorous, and it's been around for years, but
can aid in weight loss in a number of ways. It can help you feel full, reducing snacking behaviour. It has a low glycemic index, which means it is broken down slowly by the body, making it less likely to be stored as fat. Further, it has a similar absorption rate to the more commonly used whey protein, yet without the common bloating side effect whey can often cause (definitely a frustrating thing when you are trying to trim down). Finally, soy is rich in a range of vitamins and minerals that support metabolism and exercise performance, resulting in increased weight loss. Whey protein does not have this same nutritional profile. ------ This article was provided by our online health partner Health365. To
