HeartHealthy

Alright Alright, so we all know we leave cookies out for Santa to have a little snack on Christmas Eve as he’s dropping off presents, but we ALL know cookies really aren’t all that healthy. Maybe we should leave vegetables and proteins out for Santa instead, I kid, I kid…but this year Mrs. Claus has some words of advice that I think we should all take her up on! It’s time to bring attention to heart disease, and there’s no better time than now. Over the holidays we tend to stuff our faces (and stomachs) with some very unhealthy foods and desserts, so I think this is a great time to tell all you this important information!

After learning that more than 80 million Americans are living with heart disease, Mrs. Claus decided it’s time for she and Santa to set a better example – by making nutrition changes that promote heart health.

Here’s a great video from Mrs. Claus that you must watch!

Mrs. Claus is seeing to it that she and Mr. Claus are eating healthier foods that are rich in omega-3s, vitamins D and E and Beta Glucan (foods like salmon, tuna, eggs and leafy green vegetables). Mr. and Mrs. Claus also take supplements like fish oil and multivitamins, and you should too! There’s no better time to start being healthier than NOW!

Here are some heart healthy foods you may want to consider for your family!

  1. This is a very informative post. Thanks, Mrs. Claus

    I do need to make better food choices Thank you for the tips 🙂

  3. Sheila Owen says:

    I try to eat a lot of green leafy vegetables, I am not big on fish though, and I avoid eggs because I have very high cholesterol. I take vitamin E and fish oil supplements. I do see some foods listed that are high in Omega 3s that aren’t fish, so thanks for that.

  4. I did not know that more than 80 million Americans are living with heart disease

  5. Informative article!TY!

  6. Laurie Nykaza says:

    Great information my son does drink the Horizon milk he has a heart transplant so good tips to keep you healthy thanks.

  7. If Santa and Mrs. Claus can eat healthier so can I. Thanks for the tips and didn’t know about Horizon milk. Very good article, thanks.

  8. Cute idea. We love Horizon products!

  9. Susan Robbins says:

    Thank you, this is informative. I make the food choices for my family and elderly mother and want to make sure they have good nutrition.

  10. I eat fruits and leafy green veggies and I take a daily multivitamin. I’m not so sure about leaving fruits and veggie for Santa, leaving milk and coolies is a part of the legend, besides he needs to maintain that belly that shakes when he laughs like a bowl full of jelly. Thank you for sharing this post.

  11. Thanks for this post! I’m happy to hear of the Jiff Omega 3 peanut butter!

  12. Thank you so much for all the great advice! I have tried the Jif Omega 3 Peanut Butter, its delicious, creamy and so healthy!

  13. That’s cute. It’s a good article. It’s important to make changes where and while you can to be healthy.

  14. When my daughter was small she would leave cookies and milk out for Santa. Of course my husband ate them and then felt guilty. I told him we could’ve put them back in the pack. Glad for these healthier tips for snacking.

  15. Debbie Welchert says:

    In the summer I eat a lot more veggies because we have a garden. I have to admit that in the winter I don’t eat as healthy as I should. I have been cutting down on my fat intake though. I guess that’s a start.

  16. This was a cute video, love Mrs Claus’s wreath crown. I have heart disease so I am going to visit ClausNutrition.com and learn more healthy tips. Thanks for the timely reminder to eat healthy even at holiday time.

  17. This is really good information, especially this time of year. We get so bombarded with “should” that we sometimes get numb to all the information. I am not sure how to get people to listen, and change their behavior, but nothing like a new fresh approach. Teach the kids and maybe they can get parents to think more about health.

  18. Happy holidays. After reading this article, I thought about it. I don’t really do anything. I’m lazy and don’t exercise. I do take vitamins and don’t eat fried foods. I just don’t like grease.This year I’m going to try to start taking a walk everyday,

  19. I enjoyed this video from Mrs. Claus. We need to do better on eating healthier at our house. Thank you for this useful information

    I take a ton of supplements – my husband says I have the most expensive pee in the world!

  21. Joanne Gregory says:

    We always need to be reminded of the healthier choices that are out there for us!

  22. I think a big part of being healthy is to cut back on pre-made and fast food.
