A-Fib is the most common arrhythmia, or rhythm disorder, of the heart. Approximately three million American adults have been diagnosed with A-Fib, while another three million don’t even know they have it.
The risk of developing A-Fib increases with age. In fact, it’s the most common heart rhythm abnormality in people over 65.
Congestive heart failure (CHF) affects about six million Americans and is the leading cause of hospitalization in people over age 65.

Kale is all the rage! Think outside the salad bowl and roast a batch of kale as “chips” – perfect to serve in place of traditional potato chips. Because these kale “chips” are baked instead of fried, you’ll save calories and fat grams – plus dish up a dose of antioxidants key to your good health!
Carrot “chips” add a burst of bright color and nearly “sweet” flavor to snack time or as a side to your luncheon sandwich! Choose extra-large carrots for the simplest way to shave into strips.
Caprese salad is a summertime favorite. This time we’re serving it up as a sandwich, and roasting the tomatoes into a delicious salsa! Roasting veggies caramelizes their natural sugars for an extra layer of flavor. Don’t forget to make extras – the salsa makes a great topping for pizza made on the grill.
