Potatoes are considered a heart-healthy food, too, because they are rich in potassium, vitamin C and fiber. Getting enough potassium in your diet and reducing sodium intake helps to ease and lower systolic blood pressure, reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke

Why are buckwheat groats healthy? Buckwheat groats contain high levels of antioxidants such as rutin and quercetin, which are protective against cancer, heart disease and free-radical damage. Buckwheat is also high in soluble fiber, which can help lower cholesterol and reduce hypertension.

Flaxseed is a rich source of healthy fat, antioxidants, and fiber. The seeds contain protein, lignans, and the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid, also known as ALA or omega-3. The nutrients in flaxseed may help lower the risk of diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.

Like nuts, pumpkin seeds are a great source of protein and unsaturated fats, including omega-3. They also contain a good range of nutrients including iron, selenium, calcium, B vitamins and beta-carotene, which the body converts into vitamin A.
