Improve Your Heart Health With Quaker and Fabiano Viviani

heart_health How was your Valentine’s Day? Heart Day always has me thinking about my heart health, and how important it is to take care of it. My family has a history of heart disease, and it scares me to think that I could face the same disease. In order to keep my heart healthy, I understand that I have to live healthy, too. Heart health is important for all women.

We all know that February is American Heart Month, and Quaker is taking steps to help all of us take small steps towards protecting our heart health.

During American Heart Month, Quaker is teaming up with heart-throb chef Fabio Viviani (Squee! One of my favorite Top Chef contestants ever!) to inspire moms and all women to take action for their hearts.

Quaker Oats are a staple in our house. I LOVE oatmeal, so it was a no brainer that I was going to love Quaker’s Epic Hot Breakfast video starring Fabio Viviani.

Watch the video to find simple ways that you can improve your heart health.

See? Improving your heart health is as simple as eating a hot bowl of Quaker Oats in the morning, and it also helps you eat right and provides you with the fuel you need to help  get you going. Want that recipe for the oatmeal that Fabio created? Check out Fabio Viviani’s American Heart Month-inspired recipe.

Quaker wants your help in spreading the word about their new Epic Hot Breakfast video, and let’s be honest, what women wouldn’t want to take a minute to watch (and listen to his hot accent!) Fabio Viviani for a minute…especially to improve their heart health?

Quaker Oats is giving one lucky winner and a guest a chance to get away for a few days, enjoy a spa treatment, and dine at Siena Tavern in Chicago. That’s a sweepstakes I’d be happy to enter!

All you have to do is watch Quaker’s Epic Hot Breakfast video on and then share it on Twitter using hashtag #QuakerLove. Share any time between now through February 28th.

Not only that, but other 15 lucky participants will also be chosen at random to receive an “Ultimate Hot Breakfast” prize pack complete with Quaker Oats, signed items from Fabio Viviani, and additional items to help start your day.
