The month of February is Heart Health Month. Appropriate enough, right? We celebrate love and all things heart, so why not heart health as well? I’ve mentioned before that I have been trying to gain a healthy amount of weight during this pregnancy as opposed to my last. I have applied a few tips that I have learned through the years to keep my weight down, energy up and keeping my heart pumping strong. I’m so excited to introduce you to some of my latest favorite heart healthy snacks from General Mills!
Walking has been HUGE for me this time around. I ran for the first half of my pregnancy but had to stop because it became really uncomfortable. Walking has been a great alternative to keep me moving and raise my heartbeat to a safe level.
Heart healthy snacks such as Gluten Free Chex Granola, Cherrios Ancient Grains and Nature Valley Nut Crisp Bars have been wonderful choices to keep me full throughout the day but not compromising my diet. The Nature Valley Bars are so easy to take with me when I am on the go. They have bailed me out of blood sugar crashes and they taste great! I mean, anything with dark chocolate that contains healthy fats and nutrients that support my heart are definitely a good idea in my book. Be sure to get your coupon to buy 2 boxes of bars for $5 at Publix! This deal only lasts through the 11th, so hurry!
My tone it up workouts have also kept me energized and feeling strong. Most of them work so many muscle groups at the same time that it makes the workouts cardio as well as strength training.
