Help us at Coffee Rocket celebrate Heart Month by wearing red on February 7th, the National Wear Red Day, to help bring awareness to heart disease in women.
Heart Disease is something that everyone wants to avoid so here are some simple ways that we can actively practice this month!
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so let’s start there. If you are like me, you immediately think of Cheerios as a great place to start. The better your cholesterol, the less stress on your heart! Plus Cheerios go great with a cup of coffee in the morning. And yes coffee (filtered is better than unfiltered) is also great for heart health! Coffee has been found to reduce your chances for an irregular heartbeat, heart disease, stroke, and improved blood flow in small blood vessels. You can even substitute your creamer, half and half, or whatever else you use in your coffee for soy milk (another heart healthy item).
Some other super heart healthy foods are:
- Nuts such as walnuts, almonds, and pistachios
- Fish such as salmon and tuna
- And just to reduce the amount of salt you use.
So what are you waiting for? Get up and get active! Get a good nights sleep! Eat fruits and veggies! And relax with a nice cup of tea before bed! You only get one heart, so lets put on some red and give our hearts something to beat about. Show us what you are doing for Heart Month on Facebook or Twitter and maybe you could be the customer of the month too!
