It’s American Heart Month, and Welch’s wants to help you “heart your cart” (your grocery cart, that is) with heart-healthy foods like 100% grape juice. For five lucky Appetite for Health readers, no cart will be needed at all— $25 worth of Welch’s grape juice and product coupons will come straight to your door! Details on how to win are below.
If you’ve paid any attention at all to news reports about what constitutes a heart-healthy diet, you’ve no doubt heard that oatmeal, olive oil, red wine, salmon and a variety of other foods are good for keeping our tickers in top shape. An interesting survey conducted by Welch’s found that , while 2/3 of respondents knew these foods were heart-healthy, only a fraction of the people were purchasing these items on a monthly basis. That’s too bad, because these folks are missing out on lots of heart-healthy nutrients.
Now, we think our AFH readers are a different lot. We are fairly confident that you DO purchase a variety of heart-healthy foods regularly. Nevertheless, there’s always room for improvement, right? That’s where grape juice comes into the mix.
Did you know that grape juice has the same heart-healthy plant nutrients (called polyphenols) that red wine does? That’s good news for us, because wine at breakfast time is, well, let’s just say that we don’t “heart” it. In grapes, these helpful polyphenols are concentrated in the seeds and skin of grapes. We don’t need to worry about that though, since whole grapes are squeezed to make grape juice. (Whew, because we don’t “heart” eating a pile of grape seeds for breakfast, either.) Drinking delicious 100% grape juice, that’s easy to “heart.”
Want to grab yourself some grape juice? Five readers will win Welch’s 100% Grape Juice and product coupons worth $25.00.
Winners will be announced on Saturday, February 25th, 2012.
