Tip of the Day

Celebrate the Mediterranean

May is Mediterranean Diet Month. Following a Mediterranean-inspired diet is a heart-healthy approach to tackling good nutrition. Following a well-balanced diet, accompanied with regular physical activity, can help reduce your risk of developing chronic diseases.

Wondering how to build a healthier plate? The basic Mediterranean eating plan includes:

  • Whole grains, vegetables and fruits served at most meals. Fruits are eaten as desserts.
  • Olive oil is the principal source of dietary fat used for baking and cooking.
  • Nuts, beans, legumes and seeds are eaten for a good source of protein, healthy fats and fiber.
  • Herbs and spices are used to season dishes instead of salt.
  • Fish and shellfish are eaten for protein and lean cuts of meats are eaten in small portions.
  • Red wine is consumed in moderation, if appropriate.

For more information on following a heart-healthy diet, consult a registered dietitian and visit our Heart Health and Diet page.
