February is Heart Health Month. Here at Tales of Mommyhood, this is a cause near and dear to MY heart. Just before I turned 15 years old, my father died from a massive heart attack. Not only that, but my mother was born with a congenital heart defect (aortic stenosis), and in 2001 ended up having her aortic valve replaced.
With all of the "heart history" in my family, staying healthy is a priority for me. I want to make sure that my kids see me following the same guidelines I give to them. Eating healthy, staying active.
Starting your day with cholesterol lowering foods is one way that you can help keep YOUR heart healthy. Kashi Blueberry Oat Clusters & Flakes is a new addition to the Kashi brand; with great tasting ingredients just 1 cup of this cereal will offer you 45% of the daily amount of the fibres shown to help lower cholesterol.
In addition to the fibre, this cereal offers 6 grams of protein per cup, no artificial colours or flavours; is free of trans fats and is low in saturated fats.
What are you waiting for? Make a change to YOUR heart during heart health month, and give Kashi Blueberry Oat Clusters & Flakes a try!
