Eating to keep your heart healthy isn't something you should start at middle age – it's something you should do every day.
One way you can protect your heart is to swap sat-fat rich cooking oils for unsaturated fats like rapeseed oil. This helps to provide the heart with healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated essential fatty acids like omega 3, 6 and 9.
