Quaker Heart Health & The Epic Hot Breakfast Sweepstakes

Quaker Heart HealthQuaker Heart Health MommaDandDaBoyz.net

I come from a family with an extensive history of heart disease.  Both of my grandfathers passed away from heart related issues, one in his forties.  That was my mother’s father, whom I never met.  My mother raised my siblings and I with the early loss of her father in mind.  We had heart healthy meals every chance she could make them, and she was a stickler about watching her cholesterol.

Despite all of her vigilance, my mother developed high blood pressure in her fifties.  I am beginning to into account, now that I am in my mid-thirties and with my family history, what I need to do to be healthy for my family too.

February is Heart Health Month, and what better way to love those around you than to take care of your own health?  I know as a mom all too often I take care of everyone else first and myself last!  That’s why I am excited to share about one of my favorite ways to start the morning, Quaker Oats.

Quaker has teamed up with one of my favorite Top Chef alums, Fabio Viviani, to bring you this great video to remind you of these very things.

You can enter to win in the Quaker’s Epic Hot Breakfast sweepstakes by watching the video and then sharing it on Twitter and use hashtag #QuakerLove between February 14 through 28.  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.  At the end of the month, 15 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.

What a fun and easy contest to enter, and what a great way to remind the other women you care about to think about Heart Health this month!

Another way to have fun, learn more about Quaker’s Heart Health initiatives and win more prizes is to attend the Quaker Heart Health Twitter Party that will take place on Tuesday 2/19 from 8-9 PM EST.  Your hostess will be @ResourcefulMom and the party will feature celebrity guest @FabioViviani!  Be sure to follow the hashtag #QuakerHearts and RSVP here!
