When I was a kid in middle school, my mom had a heart attack. Come to find out, she has heart disease. And since then, some 20 years now, it’s been a fight. A fight that she keeps winning, though there’s been a few tough rounds. But it’s a constant reminder of what we must do to keep the heart healthy. Heart disease runs in my immediate family, and I know I need to vigilant, for my own kids’ sake as well as my own. And one of the best simple steps to take care of our hearts is to eat right.
To promote American Heart Month, Quaker is teaming with chef Fabio Viviani to inspire women to take action for their hearts. Quaker Oats has been committed to nourishing America’s families for more than a century now. And in support of the the Go Red For Women movement, Quaker is inviting women to start their day with a hot heart-healthy breakfast.
Quaker Oats will be be giving one winner and a guest a chance to win a spa treatment and dine at Siena Tavern in Chicago as part of their Epic Hot Breakfast sweepstakes. At the end of the month, 15 participants will also be chosen at random to receive an “Ultimate Hot Breakfast” prize pack complete with Quaker Oats, signed items from Fabio Viviani, and additional to help start and energize your day. This sweepstakes is open from February 14 until February 28.
I hope you’ll join me for the Quaker Heart Health Twitter party, under hashtag #QuakerHearts, on Tuesday February 19th from 8-9 PM EST. The party will be hosted by @ResourcefulMom and @FabioViviani, from the above video, will be the celebrity guest.
