OK, late again, but this time it isn't my fault!!!! Blogger was down all morning and I was gone all afternoon so here is Heart Healthy Monday:
Heart Healthy Website - Sister to Sister
Heart Healthy Tip - Read the nutritional labels on the foods you buy. If you don't regularly read them you may be surprised, especially the "health" foods. Sometimes they have enormous amounts of fat and sodium.
