Why the Mediterranean Diet Is Best For You


The Mediterranean diet 'pyramid' stacks like this: The teeny top part is meat and sweets, then poultry, eggs, cheese and yogurt, then fish and seafood and then, important stuff like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, olive oil, legumes, beans and nuts. Base every meal on the last category, and you could not only reduce your heart disease risk, but risk of cancer, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases.

Quick Tip

Try to always be a day ahead in your cooking. If you follow this rule, then, when you get home from work, the family dinner will be waiting for you, rather than everyone waiting on supper. While you are heating up the meal you can be preparing for the next, or you can wait until everyone is fed before working on tomorrow. This puts the power back into your own hands by allowing you to cook when it best suits you while eliminating the stress caused by rushing.
