There are a lot of benefits to being adopted.  But there is one disadvantage that has plagued me.  Knowing my birth families medical history.  I know some things but I have no idea of there is a history of heart disease, genetic disorders or anything else in my past.  Nor do I know if anything was passed on to my children.


Since I don’t know, I try really hard to do things that will take care of me and my kids that can help deter certain illnesses.  Heart health is important to me.  I want to be around a very long time.

Quaker and Top Chef heart-throb Fabio Viviani are teaming together to help inspire women to take care of their hearts during American Heart Month.  Simple things can make a huge difference, like eating right, and they want us to share with them how we are doing it as well!

During the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement, Quaker invites you to start your day with a hot delicious breakfast and to share it with them!  Just watch Fabio in this video below and you will see how easy it is to make the change!
