Celebrate World Heart Day With Workplace Wellness
Date:9/2/2009

Brown Bag it with Healthy Recipes Made with Canola Oil

CHICAGO, Sept. 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Put your heart into work this fall - as in protect your heart at work - in honor of World Heart Day* Sept. 27, which is celebrating workplace wellness this year. Heart disease is the number one cause of death globally. By 2015, almost 20 million people will die from cardiovascular diseases, mainly from heart disease and stroke, estimates the World Health Organization. The good news is that these diseases are largely preventable through a healthy diet, physical activity and other wise lifestyle choices. Here are a few easy, heart-smart tips for year-round workplace wellness:

  1. PACK IT UP. Packing a lunch, instead of eating out, allows you to control calories, fat and money, while incorporating healthy ingredients that are low in saturated and trans fats and cholesterol. Such ingredients include canola oil** and canola mayonnaise.
  2. STEP AWAY FROM THE DESK. No matter how busy your day, head outside for lunch or take a short break in the kitchen or cafeteria. You'll be more satisfied and recharged after paying attention to your food instead of your e-mail. Plus, your work area will stay cleaner.
  3. PLAN AHEAD FOR LEFTOVERS. Prepare larger healthy meals for dinner to have leftovers for work. Not only will this spice up the brown bag, but you will be fueled for productivity. Leftovers can be stretched out for two or three days as well.
  4. GET MOVING. Save time at lunch for a walk and make a habit out of taking the stairs, getting off the bus a few blocks earlier or parking your car farther away when commuting to the office.
  5. TEAM UP. Partner with a co-worker to commit to a nutrition and fitness plan. For example, a 2008 American Heart Association (AHA) survey revealed that adult Americans are 76 percent more likely to walk if someone else is counting
