Buitoni and Blood Pressure...

CR and I went to the grocery store together today. Trust me, this is RARE. When we do go we always check our blood pressure. Yes, we are 85. Actually, Rick checks his because he is on medicine for blood pressure and me, well it is my chance to one up him. Guaranteed. Not only are we 85 but are blood pressure numbers are a contest. Today's results, winner by a knockout - Karen!

Rick stepped up to the cuff. A few seconds later he got a high normal, 138/81 heart rate 71. My turn. 91/59 with a heart rate of 57. To quote Rick, just one beat higher than a corpse. Lol. He is jealous... :)

While we were at Publix, we picked up the newest Buitoni frozen dinner. I was lucky enough to be given a free coupon from Buitoni to try it out. I guess if I have to eat lobster and shrimp ravioli, I will. Twist my arm...





As you would expect, it is easy to heat up. It is a stovetop prep and takes more like 10-15 minutes as opposed to the 5 minutes advertised on the bix. Still fast.... Even CR liked this and he is a red meat sauce and pasta kind of guy. This really tasted like something you would get in a restaurant which is saying a lot. The box says it serves 2 but it is really could serve 3. All in all two thumbs up.

Good to know Buitoni is as good as it looks. I've been looking at them in the store lately, but just wasn't sure if it would be as good as it looks.

Healthy activities are activities that will help you burn fat so it means that these activities are more on physical activities.
