Heart-Healthy Eating With Delicious Mediterranean Dishes

Experience the joy of heart-healthy eating with delicious Mediterranean dishes. Includes the Mediterranean diet pyramid and Greek recipes for salad, baked fish, egg and lemon chicken soup and honey oranges.

Mediterranean Diet Pyramid
The base of the pyramid is daily exercise, followed by the traditional Greek foods we should all eat more of, notably whole (rather than processed) grains, and generous servings of fruits and vegetables, nuts and beans. Olive oil, cheese and yogurt also make the list of daily foods, but need to be eaten in exchange for — not in addition to — other, less healthy fats.
