Each February for the longest time, I would participate in fundraising for the American Heart Association. It's been way too long since I've participated. That's why I'm really happy to be able to share a special heart healthy recipe and Pinterest sweepstakes from Campbell Soup Company in honor of American Heart Month. You see, they're dedicated to helping women care for their hearts by offering up delicious heart-healthy foods and recipes as a part of their ongoing support of the American Heart Association. This post is sponsored by Campbell Soup Company.
I find it shocking that heart disease is a leading cause of death in women in the United States. Not sure if I'm alone, but I tend to consider heart disease something that men experience more. But, I'm completely wrong and hopefully we call help spread the news during American Heart Month and beyond. It's been an eye opener since I moved to Florida and basically fast forwarded into to spring weather from the dreary cold winter back in New England. It made me realize what a toll I let the cold weather and the holiday season take on me. We've barely been here for a few weeks, but we immediately started taking small steps to feel better inside and out. I really like that Campbell Soup Company just launched their Address Your Heart with Pinterest Sweepstakes to encourage small steps towards making heart-healthy lifestyle choices every day. This really aligns with my pace and lifestyle right now.
Here's what they're doing to encourage a heart healthy lifestyle! You can get entered to win a variety of daily prizes that can help get you on track throughout the month!
Now, before I tell you what amazing prizes are up for grabs, I wanted to share one of the American Heart Association Certified recipes that I found on the Campbell's Kitchen website. It's called "Hearty Chicken & Vegetable Chowder". Since it was so easy and looked so delicious, it was an easy pick for me. I've been slowly getting back into the swing of cooking dinner and getting back on schedule. I love that the recipe calls for Campbell’s® Healthy Request® Condensed Cream of Celery Soup because it's a great base to inspire a lot of flavor in a short amount of time. Plus, it was the perfect example of how heart healthy meals can actually be really tasty too!
Want to make it too? Here's the recipe, compliments of Campbells Soup Company.
