Eat Smart for Your Heart

It's a fact: If you eat right, exercise, watch your weight, and don't smoke, you can live a better life!

Chef Nikki Shaw: Anyone that knows me, knows that I'm constantly in search of great food, fun, and adventure! Now that I'm getting (just a tiny bit) older, I've become more conscious about making better choices. Research shows that having healthy habits can reduce your risk of heart disease by 80 percent or more. This means that if you eat right, exercise, watch your weight, and don't smoke, you can live a better life!

Women that have a weekly moderate workout routine (power walking, jogging, aerobics) are strengthening their heart muscle. Heart-pumping exercises can prevent deadly plaque from accumulating inside the arteries, improve blood flow, and lower blood pressure.

Exercising is only half the battle. Stay conscious about your food choices. Cut back on eating processed foods. Focus on fresh high-fiber fruits and vegetables. Eat plenty of whole grains, beans, and nuts (almonds, pecans, and walnuts). Eat as little red meat as possible -- replace it with fresh fish and poultry.

"NIK TIP": Try to limit eating fried foods, commercially prepared baked goods, white bread, white pasta, white potatoes, white rice, and white sugar. Instead, eat 100% whole grain bread, whole-wheat pasta, brown rice, and use natural sweeteners like Agave nectar.

In this bitter economy, I'll show you how to make life sweet right at home.

Throughout this awesome pattern of things you actually receive a B+ for hard work. Where exactly you lost us ended up being in your facts. As it is said, the devil is in the details… And it couldn’t be more true here. Having said that, allow me reveal to you precisely what did give good results. Your article (parts of it) is definitely quite persuasive which is most likely why I am making the effort to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, while I can easily notice the jumps in reason you make, I am not convinced of just how you seem to connect the points which help to make the conclusion. For the moment I will subscribe to your position but trust in the near future you actually connect the dots better.

Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
