Try these food replacements for small steps to a healthier heart:

Instead of
Having white rice or pasta with dinner
Try
Serving brown rice or whole-grain pasta

Instead of
Eating milk chocolate
Try
Going dark; it’s much higher in heart-healthy bioflavonoids

Instead of
Drinking a cup of black tea
Try
Switching to white tea, a more concentrated source of antioxidants

Instead of
Hitting the vending machine when you’re stressed
Try
Doing some deep-breathing exercises or watching a funny YouTube clip

Instead of
Using butter as a spread or to sauté foods
Try
Using olive oil or a plant sterol spread on bread; sautéing with a cooking spray
