Heart Smart Challenge: Make 3 Heart-Healthy Choices this week

Why make 3 heart smart choices?  Because making 3 great heart-healthy choices will likely lead to a lot more than 3 by the end of the week.  The idea of a short term challenge is to be singularly focused on one goal for a short amount of time.  Keep the Heart Smart Choice idea at the top of your meal planning this week.

What IS a heart-healthy, heart smart choice? Well, many things qualify in the land of health and wellness. 

Here some examples:

  • Eating less processed foods 
  • Eating more whole grains and whole foods
