Did you know that heart disease is the #1 killer of women? That is one scary statistic! Eighty percent of women between the ages of 40 to 60 have one or more risk factors of heart disease! Whoah! That’s me! I am 47 years old and need to be aware of those risk factors and want to make sure all other women are aware too.

    I absolutely love banana chips, so good. If you ever have a chance to try Plantain Chips — you should try them too. Especially if they’re a little spicy. So good! 🙂

    I’m under 40, but it’s never too early to start thinking about healthy habits. I have a desk job, so I’m pretty inactive. I love salty snacks, so this is a great list of alternatives!
