I’ve been traveling to Florida quite a bit the last seven months to help my dad while he was recuperating after his heart attack.
Though he is doing extremely well and he’s been able to resume his normal activities, this event gave us a jolt. We realized how important a heart-healthy diet is for all of us, both young and old. Well, we all know that but for some reason we don’t always follow the rules.
Eating from the land is one of the ways to get our recommended daily requirement of fruits and vegetables. We can start by eating fresh fruits and vegetables, and we’ll be contributing to helping the environment as well.
And then there is the all important fiber. Since we began to help our dad with his new heart healthy diet, my sister and I have been trying to improve our family diets as well. We’ve been working hard to be sure we include high fiber foods into our diets every day.
Thanks to Kellogg’s All Bran it will be easier than ever to get enough fiber into our diets every day. Eating All Bran for breakfast with fresh fruit and berries is a no brainer. Variety is the spice of life, and this breakfast has variety written all over it that it will be hard to skip this important meal.
I also am also up to the challenge to include All Bran in my recipes. It will be a snap to keep up with a heart healthy diet.
