Does your diet include unhealthy sources of protein, perhaps burgers, hot dogs and fried chicken in excess? Do your heart a favor and choose your proteins wisely. Legumes are a great source of heart-healthy protein. They include beans, peas and lentils. Legumes are typically low in fat and contain no cholesterol. Legumes also contain soluble and insoluble fiber.
