What is saturated fat and how can I avoid it?

One last tip for heart month. Probably the single biggest problem for your heart is SATURATED FAT. This basically means fat from an animal - most of us get saturated fats from the grease and oil in fast food. However a study published in JAMA (the Journal of the American Medical Association) found that protein and UNsaturated fats can positively affect blood pressure and may reduce the risk of heart disease. For you that means eat white meat chicken - which is a very lean protein - instead of beef and use olive oil - the best unsaturated fat.

 

So if you are driving home and thinking about stopping at Taco Bell, remember your heart. You can either order the chicken items from the Fresca menu or you can do one better - you can make my amazing 10-Minute Chicken Tacos at home. Click here for the simple recipe! You'll feel fortunate that this fantastic flavorful fun food will feed your family full fast. No foolin'!

What can you learn from Sea World???

I am so sad about the loss of Sea World trainer named Dawn Brancheau, who was killed by a Killer Whale.  I had met her a number of years ago at Sea World in Orlando. 

Her passing was such a shock, and a reminder to each of us to just how fragile life can be.  It should be a reminder to all of us just how important it is to reach out and share Christ with our friends and family members.

Who would you like us to pray for???
