I am thrilled to announce that I have teamed up with Honey Nut Cheerios to share with you how to have a happy, heart-healthy lifestyle.  I have loved this cereal most of my life and it is a wonderful treat to share it with my granddaughter and the rest of my five grandchildren.

At 2 ½, she knows the difference between regular Cheerios and Honey Nut Cheerios and always picks the box she loves at the grocery.  That pleases me for so many reasons.  This is a gluten free, whole grain snack and breakfast option good for the whole family.

I was thrilled when I discovered that Honey Nut Cheerios can be a part of my new heart-healthy eating plan.  It fits right in with all I have been doing since I turned 60, six years ago.  According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), nearly 1 in 3 American adults have high cholesterol. People with high cholesterol have about twice the risk of heart disease as people with lower levels. To help keep hearts healthy, medical experts recommend practicing healthy living habits, like maintaining a healthy weight, getting enough physical activity and eating a heart-healthy diet which can include foods made with whole grain oats, like Honey Nut Cheerios. The cereal provides 0.75 grams of soluble fiber per serving. I was so excited it was on my plan and with a comfort food like Honey Nut Cheerios, I do not feel deprived of a food I have always enjoyed.

I recently celebrated my 66th birthday, and I am happy to report I am still feeling 40.  I am amazed at how good I feel and the only way I can be at the gym at 5AM three to five days a week, work a full-time communications job, work a second job as a blogger, be an active wife, mother and grandmother is to take care of myself with healthy eating, and physical activity.

But, you all know I believe joy is also a big part of staying active, and so do the people at Honey Nut Cheerios.  They are on a mission to inspire Happy Hearts.  My family and work that I enjoy also make up the joy factor and I love to see my granddaughter smiling as big as I do when we play with baby dolls or stuffed animals.  I hope that my grandchildren will always remember me with a smile on my face and joy in my heart.
