I make an effort to live heart-healthy every day. After all, heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death in women in the United States, killing approximately one woman every minute. A heart-breaking statistic. A healthy diet and lifestyle are the best weapons in the fight against it!
Take it one step at a time.
- Stop smoking.
- Get your blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose checked.
- Incorporate more movement into your life. Just a few minutes a day is enough!
- Make heart-healthy food choices – consuming lots of fruits and vegetables, limiting fat and sodium intake, and cooking with healthier ingredients makes a huge difference!
Speaking of healthy ingredients, as part of their continued support of the American Heart Association, Campbell Soup Company is dedicated to helping women care for their hearts by providing a huge variety of delicious, heart-healthy foods and recipes that balance great taste with nutritional value – just look for the American Heart Association’s heart check mark! Certified Campbell’s products include Healthy Request® soups, V8 beverages, Prego pasta sauces and Pepperidge Farm whole-grain breads.
There’s nothing more comforting on a cold, snowy day than a big bowl of soup! My favorite variety of Campbell’s Healthy Request® Condensed Soups is the Homestyle Harvest Tomato with Basil. Though I used to eat it with a grilled cheese sandwich, these days a big salad is a better choice. It’s delicious and easy-to-make Campbell’s products like this that make it easy to incorporate heart-healthy foods and recipes into our daily lives.
