    1: Nuts

    Nuts contain monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats to keep your arteries clear, as well as levels of precursors of serotonin to boost mood. One ounce a day is just right; more is fine, but remember to be careful of calorie overload - an ounce is about twelve walnuts or twenty-four almonds.

    2: Fish

    Fish (especially wild salmon, whitefish, tilapia, catfish, flounder and mahi mahi) contain artery-clearing omega-3 fatty acids. Serving size recommendation is 13.5 ounces a week (or three servings about the size of your fist).

    Soybeans contain heart- and artery-healthy protein and fiber. The recommended serving is one cup a day.
