dreamstime_732987In case you missed the red and pink-themed shop windows, the heart-infested candy aisles in your local drugstore or the sea of red that was once your neighborhood Hallmark store…February is, in fact, Heart Awareness Month.

In keeping with the theme, I’ve decided to devote my postings this month to multiple topics related to food and heart health.

Be on the lookout for upcoming blogs on these heart-related topics (don’t worry–the actual postings will have much catchier names):

  • Whole grains
  • The real health benefits of chocolate (just in time for Valentine’s Day!)
  • Demystifying the fiber and cholesterol relationship
  • A primer on Fish Oil
  • Eating your way to lower triglycerides
  • Eating your way to lower blood pressure

…and more!

In the meantime, if you haven’t had your cholesterol checked in awhile, what are you waiting for? Make an appointment to see your doctor! Nothing is more romantic than a couples appointment for a lipid panel… swoon.

And to kick off Heart Awareness Month as you eagerly await my upcoming postings, get some heart-healthy ideas on beans, buckwheat and flax seed from the archives!
