Eating good fats may be better for you than red meat. Olive oil, fresh fruits and vegetables. Beans and fish, but be careful. We have contaminated a lot of fisheries with mercury. If you are pregnant, talk to your doctor. Even if you aren’t you should limit fish. That is sad, isn’t it? Fish has become a healthy food that may not be as healthy as we would wish.
The Mediterranean diet has long been recognized as one of the healthiest ways to eat. The Mediterranean way of eating is not only delicious, it’s also been linked with improved heart health and decreased obesity risk. The concept of the Mediterranean diet is simple—fill your plate with fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy fats, whole grains, legumes and fish and enjoy moderate amounts of red wine. This week’s meal plan makes it even easier to follow the Mediterranean diet with seven days of fresh and healthy dinners.
