Did you know that February, prime time for hearts and flowers, is also American Heart Month? Not to put too fine a point on it, but…we heart healthy hearts!

Keeping your heart healthy means doing healthy things for the rest of your body, too — and that means eating right. Instead of reaching for salty, high-calorie snacks, grab some luscious, juicy fruits. Fresh, frozen or dried, they’re delicious at any meal. Your taste buds will love the flavor, and your heart will love the important nutrients that help keep it strong!

How do these nutrients in your food help your heart?

  • Flavonoids are antioxidants found in plants, and they help keep your arteries healthy, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and decrease inflammation.
  • Fiber helps keep your appetite satisfied so you don’t reach for unhealthy foods.
  • Antioxidants like vitamins A, C, E and K help fight heart disease and support your immune system.
  • Folate (vitamin B9) helps make healthy red blood cells and maintain your nervous system; it’s especially important for developing fetuses.
  • Calcium and potassium help regulate your heartbeat.
  • Magnesium helps regulate heart rhythm and control blood pressure.

Id appreciate some help with printing your coupons.  I thought my old computer was at fault but I purchased a new computer and still have the same problem.  It says I don't have Java even after I've downloaded it.  I use Macs and Safari.
