APB Speaker Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum Shares Tips for a Heart Healthy Holiday
16 Dec 2015
Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum is a preventive cardiologist who practices patient-focused and patient-empowering care, and her recent article in Snack Food & Wholesale Bakery brings readers tips on staying heart healthy this holiday season.
In her article, Dr. Steinbaum notes that diets high in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts and olive oil have been shown to decrease the incidence of heart disease. While you may not be able to consume all of these foods at holiday parties, keeping an eye out for dark chocolate, nuts, whole grains and raisins will treat your heart better than if you opt for something else. Additionally, Dr. Steinbaum provides health tips for de-stressing during the season, as studies have shown that the holidays can be one of the greatest sources of stress, which can lead to unhealthy diet decisions.
Dr. Steinbaum is widely known as a champion for women’s healthcare and preventive heart health, and has been doing this work for over a decade. Besides being a wealth of health knowledge, Dr. Steinbaum also shares wisdom, insights and stories from her professional career in keynote speeches and in her book, Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum’s Heart Book: Every Woman’s Guide to a Heart Healthy Life.
