Tip: Add colorful food to your meals everyday-fight bad LDL from your arteries that way!

RED, YELLOW, ORANGE, and GREEN are the colorful choices for reducing the risk of heart attack and stroke in women. Eat color to reduce cholesterol-bell peppers, tomatoes, strawberries, citrus fruits, and broccoli for Vitamin C (an HDL cholesterol booster); sweet potatoes, cantaloupe, carrots and mangos for beta-carotene (prevents LDL from clogging arteries).
