A Mediterranean Diet for Healthier Hearts

While cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death globally, researchers published in The New England Journal of Medicine that 30% of heart attacks, strokes and deaths from heart disease are preventable with a Mediterranean influenced diet.

By limiting red and processed meat, high-fat dairy products and unhealthy desserts, you can lower your risk for cardiovascular diseases. Choose fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains instead of refined, fish and chicken, olive oil, and wholesome legumes to enrich your diet.

In support of National Heart Awareness Month and your own heart, try out this Mediterranean recipe this February!
