Heart Healthy Foods for American Heart Month

In an effort to promote heart health, February is American Heart Month.  One way to take care of your heart is to eat a healthy diet full of foods that are good for it. Your favorite seafood restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks features these types of foods on our everyday menu.  You will be very happy to find out how healthy many of these delicious items are.  


Seafood

JB Hook's menu is filled with the best seafood at the Lake of the Ozarks.  Fish high in omega-3s , such as salmon and tuna, are excellent foods to eat for a healthy heart. Studies show that these can help lower the risk of an irregular heart beat and deter plaque from building up in the arteries.  The American Heart Association recommends eating fish at least twice a week.   

   

Vegetables

Potatoes are rich in potassium, which can help to lower blood pressure, and also high in fiber, which can lower the risk of heart disease.  Tomatoes are high in potassium too, and a good source of lycopene.  This antioxidant lowers the risk of heart attacks. Many vegetables are high in carotenoids.  These free your body of compounds that could be potentially harmful.  Carrots, sweet potatoes, red peppers, broccoli, green beans, and especially leafy greens like spinach and kale are excellent sources of this.        


Red Wine

One or two drinks a day could lower the risk of heart disease by improving "good" cholesterol levels.  More than that, though, may increase your risk, so drink sensibly.    


Coffee

As few as two cups of coffee a day has been found in studies to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke by 10%-30%.  Even those drinking up to six cups a day showed this benefit.  



JB Hook's wants all of our customers to stay healthy and be around for a long time. We do our best to offer you menu items that are not only delicious but also good for you.  The best restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks strives to give all of you the very best in quality and service because we want to see you back at our restaurant over and over again.
