Hello and welcome everyone to another episode of Cooking with Fey!
Today I thought I would share with you a grocery haul that is perfect for those of us with Atrial Fibrillation. When shopping for groceries with Atrial Fibrillation, try to stick with fresh fruits and vegetables and unprocessed meats. The goal is to eat food in as close to it’s nature state as possible, so try to avoid foods found in boxes or cans.
You’ll also want to try and limit your salt or sugar intake. I’m trying out some Greek yogurt mixed with fruit to add more protein to my diet, and ward off those pesky sugar cravings. Salt is another thing to avoid. By reducing your intake of boxed or canned food items you can decrease your salt intake fairly easily and naturally. When cooking, try to cut back on how much salt you would normally use and see how your meal tastes. You might be surprised by how easy it is to reduce your salt content in food without sacrificing flavor.
Leafy greens are a must, as they are a great source of micro-nutrients your body needs. Broccoli is an amazing addition to your diet for the vitamin content as well, so try roasting or steaming this yummy food to add to your lunches or dinners throughout the week.
Meat, like chicken, is a great source of protein to help your body repair and maintain muscle tissue, like your heart. So be sure to get between 40-60 grams of protein each day to help your body performing at its best.
