The American Heart Association suggests these holiday treats:

  • Brussels sprouts (sprinkled with a pinch of brown sugar and salt) and other green leafy veggies, such as broccoli, kale, cauliflower or collard greens.
  • Apples.
  • Unsalted roasted nuts, especially almonds.
  • Salmon and other heart-healthy fish, such as mackerel, sardines, tuna and herring.
