February is National Heart Month, a celebration that aims to increase awareness of
cardiovascular health in general. The idea itself of ​​breathing should be a great reminder to take
care of this organ, which gives life to the entire body. Unfortunately, we don’t give it as much
importance as it deserves.

It is crucial to our community to be well-informed about cardiovascular health. Balanced
nutrition and regular check-ups are important ways to stay on track for heart health.

Doing a self-analysis of our lifestyle and see how can it be improved could be a first step
towards a heart-healthy lifestyle. For example, are you exercising regularly? Maybe you could
add physical activity to your day and avoid living a sedentary lifestyle. How balanced is your
diet? You can reduce foods high in saturated fats and take advantage of healthier foods, such as
fruits and vegetables, and introduce unsaturated fats, like pistachios, to your day-to- day.

Scientific evidence suggests, but does not prove, that eating 1.5 ounces per day of most nuts,
such as pistachios, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, which may reduce the
risk of heart disease. Wonderful Pistachios contains 13 grams of fat per serving and nearly 90%
of their fat is unsaturated.

When you have a serving of Wonderful Pistachios, you will be getting 3 grams of fiber and 6
grams of protein. On the other hand, if you have a serving of potato chips, you will only get 1
gram of fiber and 2 grams of protein. In fact, you’ll be able to enjoy about 49 pistachios
compared to just 15 potato chips per serving. Also, Wonderful Pistachios comes in a variety of
flavors, so you can vary and not feel like you are always eating the same snack.

You can also add Wonderful Pistachios in your daily meals. Have you thought of adding
pistachios to your morning smoothies? What about adding it to your favorite salad?

Take this month to start conversations with your family and friends about the importance of
doing annual checkups, the importance of having a balanced diet and how you can adapt
healthy habits that will remain forever.

I partnered with Wonderful Pistachios to encourage healthy eating choices.
