February is American Heart Month... and a great time to think about the steps we can take for better heart health this year.
¨ Skip the sides, which are usually deep-fried. For a healthier side dish, order a side salad or fruit cup.
¨ Take a break from your desk and walk around the building.
¨ Buy more fruits and vegetables that are good sources of fiber, including beans, peas, oranges, bananas, strawberries, and apples.
