This past Saturday I attended an event called "Makeover My Heart". It was a day designed for women to learn about health issues and sample some of the wonderful vendors and services available in our area. The guest speaker was Olympic Gold Medalist Shannon Miller. She spoke of her own struggles with healthy eating and weight in her life after gymnastics. There was also a motivational comedienne...the best...a cardiologist and a heart survivor. We saw Tai Chi,yoga and spinning
demonstrations. There was info on different natural mineral makeup lines, makeover opportunities, essential oils information and chair massage. What a fantastic way to spend a Saturday with my girlfriend it was! And it included a really nice lunch.

Lunch was Pineapple Chicken Salad...I am going to post this tomorrow. All I can say is Y-U-M! Dessert...well, I'm not too sure about heart healthy, but it sure was tasty and so easy. So this is my post for today. It is really delicious and so easy. And isn't that what we look for these busy days?
