Some weeks I feel like I’ve been a bit rough with the reality thing, so I thought I would end the week on a lighter, more upbeat reality note.

One of the common threads out there for the “right thing to do” for your health, especially when it comes to avoiding high blood pressure and heart disease, is intake of antioxidants. Sounds a bit like something you would clean your toilet with, but the truth is that they are tasty and fun.

From a glass of good wine to a chunk of dark chocolate, pecans and yes, blueberries, antioxidant loaded foods and spirits are loaded with health benefits. You can have a good time and drive your life insurance rates down.

Bottom line. Have a good weekend. Drink some wine, but don’t drink and drive. Eat some chocolate covered blueberries and don’t share with the kids.
