Good morning! I have a fun post for you guys. We have the opportunity to donate $500 to the American Heart Association (AHA)! Read on!
Quaker has teamed up with the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement to encourage women to “Nourish What Counts” by taking just 5 minutes to do something good for their hearts. As you know, it only takes 5 minutes to to schedule a workout or eat a healthy breakfast.
Here are a few simple ideas from Quaker you can do in 5 minutes to help nourish your heart:
Eat heart healthy meals: Replace some of the refined grains you eat, like white bread and rice, with whole grains. Start making the change at breakfast by eating 100% whole grain Quaker Oatmeal. Three grams of soluble fiber daily from oatmeal, in a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may help reduce the risk of heart disease. A serving of Old Fashioned Quaker Oats gets you on your way with 2 grams.
Challenge yourself: Take five minutes to sign up for the Map My Fitness Quaker Challenge: Complete 15 workouts in 30 days to help keep your heart healthy and strong.
Learn facts about heart health: Visit Quaker.com/NourishWhatCounts to learn how you can make Heart Health an important part of your daily routine. Discover the state of your heart to make an informed decision about what you can do to live a better life by taking the My Life Check.
Make time for family fun: Set-up a “family night” each week. Cook a healthy dinner together, break out the board games or head outside to enjoy playing together. Sharing in laughter and fun helps relieve stress, which is great for your heart!
To celebrate American Heart Month and help spread the message, Quaker would like to provide a CNC reader and me with the opportunity for a $500 donation to our local American Heart Association chapters. That’s $250 on behalf of me and $250 on behalf of one of you guys! All we need to do is generate 100 comments on this post to secure the donation.
Disclaimer: Quaker is providing me with a $250 donation to my local American Heart Association chapter; however, my opinions are entirely my own.
For breakfast this morning, I made myself a big bowl of super creamy oatmeal with hemp milk (instead of almond milk), ground flaxseed meal, pumpkin pie spice, and a massive scoop of almond butter, which melted all over so I got a little bit with each bite (aka the best way to eat oatmeal).
Question of the Day
How do you nourish what counts?
Please leave a comment so we donate $500 to the AHA!
