If you’re looking for a heart-healthy eating plan, the Mediterranean diet might be right for you. The Mediterranean diet incorporates the basics of healthy eating — plus a splash of flavourful olive oil and perhaps a glass of red wine — among other components characterizing the traditional cooking style of countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea.
The Mediterranean food primarily includes fruits, vegetables, fish and whole grains, legumes, and nuts. Replacing butter with healthy alternatives such as olive oil and canola oil. The offerings are so good that saturated and trans fats that lead to clogged arteries and heart disease are replaced with mono and polyunsaturated fats, which helps lower cholesterol levels.
