Keeping the Beat (with Heart Healthy Foods)

 

 February is Heart Health Awareness month.  The Office of Training & Development, in coordination with the School of Family & Consumer Sciences, is kicking off a new six-week program to celebrate!

When:  February 20 - March 30

 

Is the program for you?

  • Do you ever find yourself in the grocery store asking, what exactly is a flavonoid? 
  • Are you confused by which foods provide antioxidants, or what, exactly, antioxidants do for your body?
  • Do you want to eat heart healthy foods but need some guidance and support?

 

We want to help!

 

What can Keeping the Beat do for you?

  • Provide suggestions for good foods to add to your diet and how those foods will help your heart.
  • Provide presentations to explain categories of heart healthy foods,
  • Provide recipe suggestions to incorporate those foods (weekly newsletter, this website, facebook**)
  • Provide a network of other individuals who want to implement the changes.

**We created a Facebook group so participants can provide one another with feedback, suggestions, and support. Click onFacebook  and see what it's all about!
