Oats

Price: $3.28 for a 42-ounce canister

The American Heart Association recommends including whole grains in your diet for heart health, and oats are among the best choices. Oats are almost always sold whole — the bran and germ aren’t milled away — so anytime you see oats on the label, you’re likely getting whole grains.

Among whole grains, oats are especially heart-friendly. They’re rich in soluble fiber, which is known to reduce your “bad” — or LDL — cholesterol and your overall risk of coronary heart disease. There’s also a growing body of evidence that a variety of natural compounds found in oats, called phytochemicals, have wide-ranging health benefits.

How to eat them
