"Heart disease is America's number one killer," Berta Lippert tells us.  Berta is a speaker, trainer, and life coach from Duluth.

She joined us with a great salad recipe, and a great book from the Mayo Clinic on heart health to help us all out!

Berta tells us that the Mayo Clinic's "Health Heart for Life!" book lays out a great plan to help heart health. Part of that plan is called 'Eat 5, Move 10, Sleep 8'. What that means is, eating 5 servings of fruits & vegetables a day, moving 10 extra minutes a day, and sleeping your full 8 hours a night. Berta says that, "moving just 10 extra minutes a day can cut your risk of heart attack in half." If you would like to purchase a copy of the book, or find out more, you can head to store.mayoclinic.com.

Berta also brought a recipe for us to help us get those 5 servings a day! She made a wonderful, healthy Southwester Salad with Black Beans. The salad tastes great, and you can find the recipe at heart.org.

You can learn more about Berta and find more great tips at her website, bertalippert.com, you can connect with her on Facebook.
