Heart-Healthy Takeout

Next time you and your man are staring down delivery menus on a Friday night, choose Chinese. A recent study by Canadian researchers found that a Western diet (think lots of meat, eggs, fried foods and salty snacks) increased the risk of a heart attack by 30 percent over a diet full of fruits and veggies. An Oriental diet, full of tofu and soy sauce, didn’t bother that thumper one bit. The theory? The benefits of tofu cancel out the sodium-filled sauces. Even better: toss a salad while you wait for the delivery to arrive.
