I'm Seeing Red! Toast To Women Cookbook Giveaway and Recipe

I'm seeing red because heart disease kills eight times more women than breast cancer and most women aren't aware of the dangers! With Mother's Day closely approaching, it is time to let women out there know how important it is to stay heart healthy. Appropriately timed, Mother’s Day falls on the kick-off day to National Women’s Health Week this year (May 10-16).

What can you do? If you go to http://www.toasttowomen.com/ you can send a FREE personalized e-card or e-toast to the special women in your life while helping to raise funds and awareness for women’s heart disease. In return, Clos du Bois has agreed to donate $1 for every e-card sent to WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease. The goal? $100,000! While you are there make sure you enter to win one of several heart healthy gym totes, fully outfitted with a portable MP3 player, pedometer, personal yoga mat, reusable water bottle and plush gym towel. One lucky winner will also receive a beautiful new cruiser bike, ideal for staying heart healthy and physically fit.

While at http://www.toasttowomen.com/ check out the recipes excerpted from the WomenHeart's All Heart Family Cookbook. Why, do you ask? Well, I was offered the opportunity to review it and it is fabulous! I've written down several of the recipes and now I want to give it to you. I thought I would share one of the fun recipes that I tried with my son last week.

Doesn't it look yummy? It is a Tropical Fruit Pop and here is how you make it...
Tropical Fruit Pops
In addition to being delicious, mangos are rich in antioxidants, potassium, and fiber, making them a good heart healthy addition to anyone's meals.
Ingredients:

1 small ripe banana, quartered
1/2 cup orange juice
In a blender, combine the mangos, banana, and orange juice. Blend until smooth. Pour into 4 frozen-pop molds (or small dixie cups). Freeze for at least 4 hours.
