Happy 4th of July! I hope you had a great day yesterday – the weather couldn’t have been more perfect! Mr. Pumps and I had all of our friends and family over for a BBQ. It was so much fun! We’ve been working on the wedding planning and as soon as we have a date set I will be sure to let you know!
I can’t believe how close we are to reaching our goal of $750,000! And who do we have to thank for that??? YOU! You all have been so amazing and you continue to inspire me each and every day. If you are still fundraising and collecting contributions from your friends and family and team members, you still have time! Contributions will be accepted by mail, on-line and by phone until JULY 15 so keep up the great work! Together I know that we can reach our goal.
Tips for a Healthy Heart!
Summertime means grilling time – time with family and friends and time to enjoy delicious foods. If you’re grilling burgers, be sure to buy lean or extra lean beef, drain off the excess fat after cooking and avoid making huge patties. *Remember that a serving of meat is about the size of a deck of cards (3 oz). You can even add finely chopped green pepper to your beef to get in some veggies! If you’re grilling fish, the healthiest types include salmon, trout and herring, which are high in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Rub a fillet with lemon juice and parsley or rosemary for enhanced flavor.
