A recent article in Health Magazine (http://www.health.com/health/gallery/0,,20307113,00.html) listed the top ten healthiest foods for your heart – and Pita Jungle offers dishes containing almost all of them:

Salmon

Salmon is touted as a super food because of its super-high content of omega-3 fatty acids, which can help to reduce blood pressure and lower your risk of blood clots. Try: Wood-Fired Fresh Salmon

Olive Oil

Olive oil is the holy grail of heart health. Olive oil is a staple of the Mediterranean diet, and chock full of monounsaturated (good) fats, which can help to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and reduce your risk of developing heart disease. Try: Garlic Dip, Hummus, Dolmades, Taboule, Hummus with Seared Ahi Tuna, Mahi Mahi with Pita Chips

Nuts

Nuts contain a wealth of unsaturated (good) fats and fiber, which are great for promoting cardiovascular health. Try: Hummus with Grilled Chicken, Mediterranean Chicken Salad, Chipotle Chicken Lavosh Pizza, Mahi Mahi with Pita Chips, Baklawa

Berries

Berries are packed with anti-inflammatories, which studies have shown may reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer (source: https://netfiles.uiuc.edu/imagemal/www/Publications/Journ..., http://www.webmd.com/heart-disease/news/20080215/berries-good-for-heart). Try: Yellowfin Tuna Honey Sesame Salad, Caribbean Salad, Fruit and Cheese Fantasia, Strawberry Smoothie

Legumes

Legumes, such as lentils, chickpeas, black beans and kidney beans, are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, and soluble fiber, which are necessary for optimum heart health. Try: Roasted Bell Pepper Hummus, Lentil Fetoosh Salad, One Thousand Beans, Falafel Pita, Spicy Chicken Wrap, Chipotle Black Bean Burger, Mediterranean Platter, Chicken Del Sol

Spinach

Spinach is loaded with lutein, folate, potassium and fiber – all of which work to improve heart health and keep heart disease at bay. Try: Spinach Four Cheese Quesadilla, Spanakopita, Spinach Pasta Salad, Pesto Pizza, Wood-Fired Fresh Salmon

Soy

Soy not only helps lower cholesterol, but it is also an excellent source of lean protein and is a great choice for a heart-healthy diet. Try: Macro Platter
