“Food and Fitness” Friday… “Cardio”

Thump thump, thump thump. Thump thump, thump thump. What is that sound? Thump thump, thump thump, thump thump. Hopefully the sound that you hear is of your healthy heart. The heart IS the most important muscle in the body, and just like other muscles needs exercise to stay in good shape.

Cardio vascular exercises, or “cardio” for short are essential for a healthy heart. All it amounts to are exercises that involve the large muscles like legs and help make your heart and lungs stronger. Cardiovascular exercise have lots of health benefits like lowering your blood pressure, and also it can burn lots of calories – for those of you who want to lose weight.

So how often do you do “cardio” work and for how long? A good average is 30-60 minutes 3 to 6 times a week; all depending on your training level. Too much “cardio” is just as bad as not enough. If you don’t do any, start today. Get with a trainer if possible and let them get you started on a good solid “cardio” program.

      What u need Snickers I like the bit size ones best
      either puff pastry or just pie crust in a can.
      All u do is roll out the crust or pastry cut nice size circles place Snickers in the middle then fold over to make ravioli. Place on cookie sheet and cook per directions on crust liable. When done.place on plate top with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream and drizzle with Carmel n chocolate. Syrup and serve…enjoy this easy but delicious dessert.
