World Heart Day is on September 29th and I have one question to ask you, are you heart healthy?  Heart is disease is the leading cause of death in women over 40 years old.  Every year, over 400,000 women: nieces, aunts, friends, daughter’s, mothers die from the disease.  That translates to 1 death every minute.

The thing is, heart disease is not imminent but it is preventable.  As a health care professional, blogger, mother,  I am joining in spreading the word.  So join other women around the world and take the heart healthy pledge.  Once you have signed the pledge, you can take a risk assessment and it will identify what changes you need to make to be heart healthy!

Here are some things that I do to stay heart healthy.

  • I usually start the day with a bowl of old fashioned oats with almond milk with or without fruit/nuts
  • Get moving at least 4 days a week
  • A non-smoker
  • Focus on eating mostly lean cuts of meat like chicken, pork, fish during the week.  Beef is a delicious splurge!
  • I am quite the green tea drinker -2 cup a day minimum 🙂
