28 Heart Healthy Foods

28 Heart Healthy FoodsRight now we’re focused on all matters of the heart because February is Heart Health Month. Science continues to prove the power of nutrition for prevention, healing and supporting our bodies’ best health. There are 28 days in February so today we’re sharing the 28 best heart healthy foods for your body.

28 Heart Healthy Foods

 

Salmon: Salmon is the holy grail of foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s help lower blood pressure levels and triglycerides while also reducing inflammation.

Almonds: You can get all nutty for the fiber and Vitamin E found in almonds because they lower bad cholesterol. And people who eat nuts with healthy fats tend to weigh less, which is a positive indicator for heart health.

Dark Chocolate: When you select dark chocolate with 70% cocoa or greater, you’re getting terrific antioxidants that support cardiovascular health. Studies show eating this scrumptious food can lower risk of heart attack and stroke.

Oatmeal: It’s all about the soluble fiber that makes oatmeal a heart-healthy superfood. It not only keeps you satiated for longer, but it also absorbs cholesterol before it enters the bloodstream.

Spinach & Kale: Cruciferous vegetables like spinach and kale are chock full of fantastic vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and other phyto-nutrients that support your heart and entire body.

Blueberries: Berries, especially blueberries, contain supercharged antioxidants like flavenoids and anthocyanins that lower blood pressure and dilate blood vessels for a healthier flow of blood throughout the body.

Avocado: With a high concentration of omega-3 fatty acids and monounsaturated fats, avocados are excellent for lowering bad cholesterol and raising good cholesterol levels.

Beans: Dark beans contain antioxidants, folate (and other B vitamins) and magnesium which contribute to lower blood pressure levels. Plus their fiber helps to stabilize blood sugar levels.

Walnuts: Another food rich in omega-3 fatty acids is walnuts. Plus, these ridged nuts contain monounsaturated fats, fiber and plant sterols that help lower cholesterol and reduce inflammation.

Flax Seeds: Ground flax seeds are super easy to incorporate into a variety of foods from smoothies and oatmeal, to stews and soups. As you stir in the goodness you’re adding a whopping amount of omega-3 fatty acids to your diet.

Soy: Soy products like tofu, edamame and soy milk are wonderful source of vegetarian protein as well as polyunsaturated fats and a wealth of minerals.

Coffee: Your daily coffee habit may significantly reduce your risk of heart disease. The antioxidants found in coffee are super at cleansing your body and scavenging free radicals.

Citrus Fruits: Juicy oranges and other citrus fruits boast heart-friendly nutrients like flavenoids, hesperidin and Vitamin C (of course), which keeps your blood flowing smoothing and lowers risk of stroke.

Olive Oil: This healthy fat is one of the best for cooking, especially when you use it to replace heart enemies like saturated fats.

Sweet Potato: In addition to a healthy dose of lycopene and Vitamin A, sweet potatoes help balance blood sugar levels far better than regular potatoes. Options that lower blood glucose spikes and reduce risk of diabetes are heart healthy foods.

Broccoli & Cauliflower: These cousin cruciferous vegetables are bursting with vitamins, minerals and fiber. All vegetables are good for your body but green leafy (or flowery) vegetables are the best.

Green Tea: With antioxidant levels far superior to most foods, green tea is an ancient heart healthy beverage that is known to reduce heart disease and stroke when consumed regularly. Plus the robust flavor can replace sugar beverages that add unnecessary calories to your diet.

Herbs: Using fresh herbs in your cooking helps reduce the need for added salt and fats. Instead you can flavor your food with herbs like sage, basil, rosemary and garlic.

Brussels Sprouts: These cute little balls of goodness are fantastic for your heart. With a plethora of nutrients, they help reduce inflammation and strengthen blood vessels.

Apples: Polyphenols, pectin and fiber in sweet, delicious apples helps lower LDL cholesterol levels by up to 40%.

Red Wine: A glass of red wine every now and then can help your heart thanks to the antioxidants resveratrol and catechins that support strong artery walls.

Low Fat Yogurt: As good as dairy is for your bones, it also helps you lower high blood pressure. Low fat yogurt is best and contains more calcium.

Chia Seeds: Teeny tiny but quite mighty, Chia seeds have lots of omega-3 fatty acids that keep cholesterol and plaque at bay.

Cherries: Anthocyanins found in every kind of cherry, from fresh to dried to juiced, helps protect blood vessels.

Whole Grains: Whole grains like brown rice, 100% whole wheat bread and many cereals help keep cholesterol levels in check. Plus they contain lots of fiber.

Tomatoes: Lycopene, Vitamin C and carotenoids found in tomatoes support heart health. The same is true of other bright red and orange fruits and vegetables.

Asparagus: In addition to many antioxidants, asparagus contains lots of Vitamin K that helps blood clot.

Tuna: Another omega-3 superfood that is a great alternative to salmon is tuna. White Albacore tuna is the healthiest option.

The Miracle of a Side Smoothing Bra

The Miracle of a Side Smoothing BraEach woman’s body is uniquely beautiful and continues to change throughout her lifetime. This is especially true of breasts and the areas that surround breasts. When side bulge begins to show, it’s time to witness the miracle of a side smoothing bra.

Breasts are made of tissue but the type of tissue changes with age. Younger breasts contain mostly glands and hormones. As a woman ages, the ratio of fat in her breast tissue increases. Genetics plays a role in the proportion of fat in breast tissue and how that fat distributes in the surrounding areas as well.

After pregnancy and breastfeeding breasts may begin to become fattier and tend to become their fattiest around menopause. Along with the increase in fatty tissue, many women experience side bulge, commonly referred to as bra bulge. It can start beneath the armpit and extend down the side of her chest.

Even the fittest women can get side bulge. It’s just part of aging and a woman’s genetic code. Some exercises can strengthen the muscles underneath the fat, but muscle-building alone usually doesn’t eliminate the problem. Sometimes strict cardio that reduces overall body fat can help, but again, it’s really a matter of genetics.

That’s when women turn to the miracle of a side smoothing bra!

The Miracle of a Side Smoothing BraIf, no matter how hard you work to eliminate side bulge, you still have the pudgy pockets, don’t fret. Leading Lady’s side smoothing feature on many of our full figure bras is exactly what you need to create that fabulous silhouette you desire.

Our full figure bras are uniquely designed to help tuck away that unwanted side bulge. Full coverage cups support your breasts from the top and cover more of the tissue beneath the armpit. From there, the cup connects to an ultra supportive band with structured side-smoothing panels that hide the bumps and create a sleek shape. The smoothing zones continue from the sides to the back for a seamless look.

You won’t believe how your side bulges melt away with innovative side-smoothing full figure bras like our Luxe Body T-shirt Bra, available in both wirefree and underwire. This smooth-as-silk bra contours and accentuates the curves you love and makes everything else disappear beneath your clothes.

For women who prefer front closure bras, our Luxe Lace Front Closure Bra or Ultimate Comfort Bra feature the miracle of side-smoothing with the convenience of front hook-and-eye closures.

The Miracle of a Side Smoothing Bra

If you like a little lace, our Dreamy Comfort Lace Full Figure Bra or our Balconette Padded Comfort Bra are the ones to try. They feature beautiful lace designs while still offering the smoothest sides you can imagine.

If you haven’t experienced the miracle of side-smoothing, you’ve just got to try one of Leading Lady’s full figure bras. You may not be able to change the make-up of your breast tissue or your genes, but you can tame them both with the miracle of side-smoothing!

How to Feel More Confident and Powerful in Any Situation

How to Feel More Confident and Powerful in Any SituationBoosting your own self-confidence and feelings of empowerment are about the best gifts you could give yourself this Valentine’s Day. When women feel confident and powerful they are able to achieve more, are happier and are deemed sexier. Today we’re sharing scientifically proven ways to feel more confident and powerful in any situation.

In any walk of life – from the board room to the class room, a job interview to a doctor’s appointment, or a date to a speaking engagement – being more confident and empowered commands respect, interest, trust and attraction. For some this comes naturally but others have to work to get there. Luckily, it may be easier than you think.

Check out these research-based methods to feel more confident and powerful in any situation:

Stand Like a Superhero

Literally strike a superhero pose with feet wide, hands on hips, a proud chest and chin up. This physical act trains your body and mind to feel heroic and powerful. In general any stance that takes up more space in a room will make you feel larger and act with more authority.

Suit-up for Power

Wearing your power armor is also important to boost your confidence. Perhaps not your superhero costume per se, but a crisp suit, sleek leather jacket or anything else that makes you feel extraordinary will help you look and feel more self-assured. Be sure to start your look with an awesome full figure bra to create a gorgeous silhouette.

Find a Winning Streak

There’s something that happens in your brain when you start to win that makes you feel like a winner. Generate small successes for yourself to start a winning streak that will help you believe in yourself.

Speak in a Lower Pitch

Research shows that speaking in a lower, monotone voice is more commanding than higher pitches. Be conscious of your voice and where you insert emotions to get the best responses from others.

Listen to Uplifting Music

A good beat will put you in a confident mood. When you need a positive pick-me-up, try putting on some base-heavy tunes that will stimulate your inner boss.

Learn Something New

Mastering a new skill – or even just attempting one – builds new connections in the brain and gives you more confidence to tackle whatever is happening in your life. Stepping out of your comfort zone can be very empowering.

Develop a Personal Ritual

You are your best champion so treat yourself like one. Create your own Rocky-style ritual that will make you feel like a million bucks every morning. Trying combining several of our methods for how to feel confident and powerful in any situation to come up with your daily ritual.

Recall an Empowering Moment

Studies indicate that recounting a previous empowering experience verbally or in writing can help you relive the moment and find new inspiration. Spend time recollecting several empowering experiences you can draw on when you need it most.

Channel a Celebrity

Sometimes comparing ourselves to celebrities makes us feel bad but if you turn the narrative around and find ways you are similar or can emulate a celebrity role model, you’ll feel more compelled to meet your goal.

Smell Good

Wearing a scent that makes you feel incredible can help you act and seem incredible to others too. If anything, when you smell yourself, you can be reminded to feel confident and powerful in any situation.

5 Ways to Improve Your Heart Health

5 Ways to Improve Your Heart HealthYour heart is the lifeline of your body so it’s no wonder heart health is critically important. Heart disease is the leading cause of death among women in the U.S. But there are five fairly simple ways to improve your heart health. Since your cardiovascular system supports every aspect of your body, the good news about these ways to improve heart health is they will also boost your full body health too.

As we jump into Heart Health Month this February, evaluate your heart health habits and make adjustments accordingly. Here’s what research shows really makes a difference for your heart:

Be Physically Active

The human body was meant to move so remaining sedentary for most of your day – whether that’s working a desk job or chauffeuring your kids around town – is bad for your heart. Just 30 minutes of exercise daily can significantly reduce your risk of heart disease and other chronic health-deteriorating conditions. Remember, exercise doesn’t have to happen at a gym. Walking with your baby, playing soccer with your kids, vigorous housework, going dancing with friends, and many other “fun” activities count as a workout.

Eat a Healthy Diet

A healthy plate at every meal and snack is a great way to maintain heart health. Not only should you hit up the major food categories – lean protein, vegetables, fruits, dairy and whole grains – but you should also incorporate heart-healthy superfoods like those with DHA and EPA Omega-3 fatty acids and plant based fats that also offer other phyto-nutrients. Keep sugar, salt and saturated fats to a minimum.

Don’t Smoke

Smoking is flat out terrible for your heart, arteries and lungs and your entire body. If you’re a smoker, working to quit should be your top heart health priority. Even second hand smoke can damage your heart so find ways to avoid being around smokers as much as possible.

Limit Alcohol Consumption

Studies show the advantages of occasional wine drinking but women should not consume more than one drink per day to sustain heart health.

Maintain a Healthy BMI

Your Body Mass Index is a measurement of your body weight and height. BMI recommendations are usually expressed in a range because all bodies are different and there can be variations within a healthy limit. There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to health and BMI takes that into consideration. However, women who remain within their recommended BMI range have fewer incidences of heart disease as well as other life-threatening conditions.

The combination of these five heart health habits can make an extraordinary difference. In fact, studies show that women who can check each of these boxes have up to 80% less risk of heart attack and heart disease.

Your heart is the central spoke of your body’s “wheel” that keeps everything moving and flowing. Following these healthy lifestyle behaviors and improving your heart health can advance every aspect of your full body health. The result: less likelihood of disease, continued youthfulness, and longevity.

The Importance of Breakfast

You’ve probably been told all of your life that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It powers your body from your brain to your feet and it is a major factor in overall health and a healthy lifestyle. New research shows importance of breakfast goes beyond these well-known reasons.

Research on The Importance of Breakfast

The Importance of BreakfastA recent study shows that people who eat little to no breakfast are at higher risk of atherosclerosis, the build-up of plaque in arteries. This is a risk factor of heart disease, the leading cause of death among men and women in the U.S. Additionally, people who skipped breakfast altogether or consumed a very low calorie breakfast had higher blood pressure, higher cholesterol levels, a greater fasting glucose level and weighed more, all contributors to heart disease as well.

Researchers were not able to pinpoint the exact reasons why breakfast causes plaque build-up but they did cite a few areas of relevance. First, people who eat breakfast generally have healthier lifestyle habits which may reduce risk of heart disease and other life-threatening health conditions. Those who skip breakfast are more likely to smoke, drink alcohol, have poor diets, not exercise and become obese.

Furthermore, skipping breakfast causes hormonal imbalances and interferes with natural body rhythms. The body needs nutrients to burn for energy to fuel every bodily function. When that doesn’t happen, especially after fasting overnight, the body can become out of whack.

Additional Benefits of Breakfast

Along with lowered risk of atherosclerosis, the importance of breakfast extends to many benefits for your body. As we just mentioned, you need it for energy. Eating breakfast can help perk you up in the morning and sustain your energy throughout the day. If you drink caffeine, be sure to have protein in your breakfast to carry that boost for longer.

Getting your morning energy helps increase your brain power for the day too. Concentration and memory skyrocket with a good breakfast and so does your mood. Plus as your metabolism is churning to rev your body, you are also burning through calories. People who eat breakfast usually have a healthier BMI.

Chances are if you are a breakfast eater you are getting more valuable nutrients in your day. Barring a few unhealthy breakfast choices like fatty meats, doughnuts and other fried foods, breakfast foods like eggs, yogurt, oatmeal, cereal, whole grain breads and fruit all add tremendous nutritional value to your day.

The importance of breakfast for your heart, brain and entire body is enormous. So listen to that advice you’ve been given all your life and stop skipping the most important meal of the day.

What Your Food Cravings Say About You

Most women report food cravings at some point in their lives, especially in their child-bearing years. (Men are less prone to food cravings – those lucky devils.) What you’re craving may just reveal something about you, and not just that you are a choc-a-holic.

We’re taking a look at what your food cravings say about you and how you can combat them…that is if you want to. Sometimes food cravings are helping you rebalance your body or are a warning sign of a nutritional need. While the food you are craving may not be the healthiest choice, it can be an eye-opening sign that you need a dietary boost.

Here’s what your food cravings say about you:

What Your Food Cravings Say About You

Chocolate

We had to start with chocolate because this is a very common craving among women. Food cravings for chocolate and other sweets can signal several things. First, your serotonin (happy hormone) levels may be low and your cortisol (stress hormone) may be high. Sugar triggers lots of happiness chemicals that combat feelings of sadness and stress, but only temporarily. You may need that sugar rush because you are low on energy, but after it wears off you might come crashing down. Also, chocolate contains magnesium, a mineral deficiency that is especially common during menstruation. So if you crave chocolate around your period, you may want to grab a dark chocolate bar (at least 70% cacao or higher), the healthier choice for chocolate and sweets cravings.

Salty Foods

Salty foods may indicate that you are dehydrated. If you workout frequently or otherwise sweat a lot, you’re probably losing a lot of salt. Sodium helps rebalance your electrolytes and fluids. Bur rather than a bagful of chips or pretzels, try veggie juice, pickles or seaweed crackers that can replenish your salt more healthfully. Also, drink plenty of water and replace other lost electrolytes too.

Ice

Your dentist may tell you that chomping on ice is bad for your teeth. It also may be a sign of iron-deficient anemia. Medically known as pagophagia, this condition is somewhat odd because ice doesn’t contain any iron but it might help keep ice crunchers awake – fatigue is a common symptom of anemia. More productive ways to combat anemia are consuming iron rich foods like lean red meat, beans and nuts.

Carbohydrates

If you’ve spent any time on a low carb diet, a craving for carbohydrates may be all-too-familiar. The human body needs carbohydrates for energy and to help absorb other nutrients like the amino acid tryptophan. When you crave bread, you may be missing out on some vital nutrients. Rather than deprive yourself of carbs, select smarter choices like whole grain breads and pastas, brown rice and quinoa.

Meat

It’s no surprise that craving meat is a sign of iron deficiency. If you’re dreaming about a juicy burger or dense steak, have your blood iron levels checked and consider adding more iron into your diet. You can do this through leaner cuts of grass-fed beef, or other sources such as beans, dried fruits and green leafy vegetables.

Crunchy Foods

When you’re stressed you may have a tendency to clench your jaw. Chomping on crunchy foods helps relieve this tension or at least makes it feel more comfortable than a tight jaw grinding down on your teeth. Of course a better way to handle stress is through meditation, relaxation, therapy and breathing techniques rather than relying on food for comfort. If you do have a craving to crunch, try raw veggies or fortified whole grain cereals.

Water

Drinking water is awesome but if you have a sudden increase in desire for it, this could be a sign of blood glucose imbalance. Your body may be trying to release sugar into your urine to rebalance, which means you will have to urinate more often. Then you’ll be dehydrated and crave water. Talk to your doctor and have your blood sugar levels tested if you experience a craving for water.

Lots of Food

Over-indulging is a common sign of being over-hungry or over-tired…or both. This ugly combo can lead to consuming excessive calories with little nutritional value. If you feel super hungry, try eating more frequent smaller meals during the day and make sure you are getting enough sleep.

The 5 Unhealthiest Things in Your Home

The 5 Unhealthiest Things in Your HomeYour home is your haven, a space where you should feel comfortable, relaxed and content. But did you know your home may be the dwelling of some pretty unhealthy, unwanted guests? Today we’re sharing the 5 unhealthiest things in your home to ensure your living quarters are a safe place for you and your family.

Unhealthy Foods/Drinks: Nutrition tops our list because it is SO important. Stocking your home with junk food is one of the worst things you can do for your health. If you keep your fridge and pantry filled with healthy options, you’ll have no choice but to stay on track with a nutritious diet. Make sure you limit your number of sugary or chemical-laden diet drinks as well.

Old Clothes: Old clothes are among the unhealthiest things in your home and become a problem on several levels, and we’re not just talking about attracting moths. First, wearing old garments such as old bras or worn-out sneakers that are no longer supportive can be bad for your health. Ill-fitting bras are not only uncomfortable, they can also cause breast, back and shoulder issues. Sneakers with worn soles can lead to joint and knee damage.

Keeping old clothes around may induce anxiety as well. Many people keep old clothes in hopes they will fit again one day. But looking at them day-in and day-out is unhealthy for your psyche. If clothes don’t fit, let them go and find new ones that make you feel confident in your body.

Fragrances: Air fresheners, perfumes and scented lotions may smell delightful but they are not good for your body. Fragrances contain phthalates and other unnatural chemicals that may be harmful, especially to your reproductive system. You can substitute manufactured fragrances with natural ones from fragrant plants and spices.

Mites, Mildew, Mold: Your habits and belongings may contribute to increased dust mites, mildew and mold. First, keep your home on the cooler side, under 70 degrees to avoid attracting these unwanted guests. Ventilate any spaces with frequent moisture, like your bathroom. Dark warm soil from plants can house mildew and having too much upholstery, rugs and blankets in a room breeds dust mites. Change air filters frequently and use a HEPA vacuum as well.

Old Personal Care Items: Your makeup, especially liquids like foundation and mascara, retains bacteria that multiply over time. Replace older tubes and wash sponges and brushes frequently. Contact lens cases and toothbrushes should be changed every three months or so as they wear down and house bacteria. Sunscreen has an expiration date that you should heed because it will not be as effective after a certain period of time.

Health Food Tends: 2018

Health Food Tends: 2018If you’re among the millions of people who vowed to eat healthier in 2018 as part of your New Year’s resolutions, we’ve got some valuable information for you. We’re sharing the health food trends that experts predict for this year. Check them out and eat them up!

Preventative Diets

Now more than ever people are turning to healthy diets to prevent sickness and disease. With a wealth of information on how diet contributes and potentially prevents certain illnesses, people are paying attention and taking action by eating more whole foods than processed, ensuring a balance of essential nutrients, limiting fats, sugar and salt, and watching out for low-quality, GMO and chemical-laden foods.

Plant-Based Protein

This is not new among health food trends but it’s one that will continue to expand in 2018. The more that’s studied about the value of plants, the more experts realize the extraordinary value they hold to human health. And plants that provide a source of protein along with crucial nutrients are given top billing. The list includes seaweed, plant waters, tofu, soy, beans, nuts, chia seeds, hemp seeds, quinoa and lentils. Vegetarianism and veganism are on the rise so plant-based protein sources are as well.

Bowls

Ditch the plate and grab a bowl in 2018. This trend extends to a variety of cuisines including poke bowls, bibimap, deconstructed burritos, superfood smorgasbords and more. There’s something wondrous about mixing flavors, textures and styles together in a bowl and then creating the perfect combination with each bite.

Emotional Connections

Comfort food has unhealthy connotations but manufacturers will try to play up mood food with healthier ingredients. These may include use of soothing botanicals such as chamomile and lavender, seed blends and unique twists on classic comfort food favorites. After all, food can enhance your mood and not just when it’s greasy, fried and fatty.

Alternative Breakfasts

Oatmeal is still a superfood but the traditional cereals and buttered toasts are making way for the modern breakfast which may include breakfast sandwiches, breakfast salads, baked goods with superfood ingredients and a variety of eggs scramblers. With more emphasis on core nutrients and less unnecessary sugar in the morning, breakfast is bringing a whole new meaning to an energized day.

Health Food Tends: 2018Four Meals a Day

You’ve probably heard that several smaller meals a day have great health benefits than three larger ones. People will be putting that into practice in 2018 by adopting a four meals a day diet. By spreading nutrients out over four meals rather than three, bodies are better able to metabolize it, burn food for energy and easily digest what is consumed. Four meals a day also helps stabilize blood glucose levels for better internal balance.

Unexpected Textures

It’s not just about flavor combinations in the New Year, there’s also a new focus on texture. Textured beverages and surprising pops and fizz are among the health food trends of 2018. An unexpected twist on the tongue offers culinary intrigue and keeps foodies on their toes.

Healthier Gluten Free

Gluten free offerings allow those with celiac’s disease and varying degrees of gluten intolerances to eat a typical diet. Unfortunately the same junk as the rest of our food goes into them, except without the gluten. Now gluten free food is getting much healthier as people are recognizing the need for health options even within restricted diets. And many people make the choice to eat a gluten free diet because they want to be healthier so this is a wonderful change for the better.

Experiential Shopping

Experiential shopping at smaller markets that offer ambiance and a social scene replace big weekly shopping trips. You may see more coffee shop and wine bar markets pop up in your area, or notice that the bakery section now has its own check-out and seating for an in-store dining experience. Shopping more often may also be a product of people wanting fresher ingredients and more produce that need to be purchased within a few days of using them.

Greater Accountability

Ingredient disclosure, food labels and manufacturer claims have been a hot topic for the past couple of years. Consumers are only getting more serious about this issue. New guidelines are in place regarding food labels. However, often ingredients are not included, and farming and manufacturing practice disclosures are certainly not required. People care where their food comes from now more than ever. Companies who can back their health food claims and deliver quality, tasty products will get more attention in 2018.

We hope you enjoy these healthy food trends in 2018!
