Heart Healthy Options At JB Hook's For American Heart Month

While February is traditionally the month for love and all things heart related, it's also the month that reminds us to take care of our hearts, as it's American Heart Month. American Heart Month teaches us the ways we help reduce of risk for heart disease, as some risk factors are preventable. One way you can take care of your heart is by enjoying meals that are filled with goods that are good for it. Your favorite seafood restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks features a few of these heart healthy items on our everyday menu. We think you will love how delicious these heart healthy menu items are! 

Seafood

Fish is one of the richest source of protein available. In addition, it is full of omega-3 fatty acids, which is beneficial for the hearts of healthy people, as well as those who are at high risk of cardiovascular disease. Nothing beats obtaining these omega-3 fatty acids than getting it right from the source. If fish isn't already a regular part of your diet, do your heart a favor and add it in. The American Heart Association recommends eating fish at least twice a week. Luckily, Lake of the Ozarks' best seafood restaurant can make it easy for you! Our menu is filled with delicious seafood options, including salmon and tuna, which are both high in omega-3 fatty acids. 

Fruits & Vegetables

Fresh fruits and vegetables are an important part of your overall health. However, they are high in vitamins, minerals and fiber and low in fat and calories, so they are great for controlling your weight and blood pressure, which correlates with a healthy heart. Add a side of fresh vegetables or fruit to your favorite meal to make it a little more heart healthy. 

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 remember to drink responsibly.

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. Drink up!
