February is Heart Health Month


Besides Valentine's Day and it's hearts, February is also Heart Health Month. A month to look closer at our hearts and our health.

Our hearts are one of our most important muscles, so we have to take care of them. We all know that hearts can be broken both figuratively and literally, so in February spend some extra time looking after yours and someone's you love.

Our friends below also care about your heart :



Green Pan -



Healthy cooking is not only about the foods you use: it is also about the right cookware. 
The new "I Love Cooking" cookware, which is part of the Original GreenPan collection is wonderful! There's I LOVE Meat!, I LOVE Eggs! and I LOVE Fish! - all with different surfaces ideal for even oil/butter distribution and release properties. Plus, they all have the ceramic non-stick surface, so they're great for healthy, fool-proof cooking and easy clean-up. The pans start at $49.99 and are available at Dillards and www.dillards.com and Macy's and www.macys.com.




Clean Lean & Sexy-





Made with nutrient dense nuts and almond butter, Clean Lean and Sexy whole food energy bars make your heart happy!  

The unsaturated fatty acids, including omega 3’s, fiber, and vitamin E in the nuts all play a role in lowering cholesterol and preventing irregular heart beat or arrhythmia. 
 
Tossed with high oleic expeller pressed sunflower oil after it’s air popped, Clean Lean and Sexy popcorn is a heart healthy food.  High oleic expeller pressed sunflower oil is unlike other oils because it is naturally high in Vitamin E, has no trans fat and promotes production of the good cholesterol, HDL.
