Health Tip of the Day

A Healthier Breakfast on the Go

  • Order a more healthful breakfast sandwich by skipping the cheese and choosing Canadian bacon or ham instead of bacon or sausage.

  • Eat a whole-wheat English muffin or bagel -- spread with plain jelly -- instead of a fat- and sugar-laden doughnut.

  • Note the size of muffins, bagels and biscuits. A jumbo muffin has two or three times the fat grams and calories of a regular-size one.

  • Choose yogurt and fruit for a quick, on-the-run start to your day.

Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is called the "silent killer" because it has no symptoms. If high blood pressure remains unchecked, it can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure, and more. You can stop this silent killer — if you catch it in time.
