(WKBW/Cleveland Clinic) February is "Heart Month", and here are some foods nutritionists say are good for your heart.

Stick with anything rich in omega-3 fatty acids, including salmon, tuna, and flax seeds. Pomegranates are also good for the heart because they're packed with antioxidants.

Foods filled with soluble fiber, like oats or dried beans can actually help to eliminate cholesterol from our bodies.

Plus, red wine has been shown to improve our"good" cholesterol, and the best dessert is a little piece of dark chocolate.
