2. Increase your fruit and vegetable consumption.
It may be difficult to eat five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables every day. One way you can increase your intake of fruit is by substituting chips, candy, and cookies for fruit. The money you use to buy cookies, chips, and candy, use that to purchase different kinds of fruit.
As for vegetables, cook at least one vegetable at every meal. If you’re unsure of how much a serving is, look on the back of the vegetable package. Eating fruits and vegetables will give you more energy throughout the day versus eating sweets, which will make you sluggish. By eating more fruits and vegetables it will become natural for you to pick up healthier options versus bad ones.
You’ll lower your risk of developing a heart murmur because healthy foods are going in your body. Junk food clogs the arteries and causes the heart to work harder. It will be no wonder you have a heart murmur by eating bad foods.
