Mediterranean Diet May Lower Cholesterol
Platelets are blood cells that help the body form clots to stop bleeding. A study in 2015 found that the Mediterranean diet can positively affect platelet function for people who have A-Fib. That study was done by PubMed Central, a highly respected organization. The Best Diet is the Mediterranean diet and may lower cholesterol levels as a high cholesterol level is a risk for stroke.

Foods that help Atrial Fibrillation
You need a portion of vegetables, a source of protein, a complex carbohydrate, and unsaturated fat. In addition to olive oil, flaxseed oil, or hemp seed oil. If a person is a vegetarian there is always the plant-based foods from non-animal sources.
The American Heart Association has some healthy ideas and recipes for, of course your heart that I want to share with you. I feel like we need more of a broader vision when it’s time to eat, above just didn’t seem like it gave too many options. I like options so here we go with some more ingredients.
We can add Beans to that, beef, Pork, chicken, seafood, pasta and rice. Also, there are Smoothies to be had, just stuff all of your needed veggies and favorite fruits in there with either yogurt or coconut milk add ice and there’s breakfast or lunch.
I was making a lot of banana bread a few months back, the bananas were going bad so finally I started freezing them. Now when we want a smoothie, we have all of our favorite frozen fruits, and it’s real convenient.

- Using tongs, transfer the chicken to a cutting board. Quickly stir in the peas, noodles (make sure the noodles are mostly submerged in the liquid), basil, lime juice, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Re-cover the slow cooker. If using the low setting, change it to high. Cook, covered, for 20 minutes, or until the noodles have softened.
- Meanwhile, carefully cut the chicken into bite-size pieces. When the soup has finished cooking, stir in the chicken. Ladle the soup into bowls. Serve with the hot sauce.
Cooking Tip: When using a slow cooker, make sure the ingredient that needs to be cooked the longest, such as meat, is placed on the bottom, which is closest to the heat source.
