A Mediterranean Diet

A study in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that following a Mediterranean diet contributed to a 37% reduction in the combined risk of acute heart attack, stroke, or cardiovascular death. This study further validated that a Mediterranean diet is an effective health intervention capable of significantly lowering cardiovascular disease risk.

A Mediterranean diet also carries strong benefits for the skin, and the main mechanism of this is the antioxidants found in the Mediterranean diet. The high content of polyphenols found in the foods that comprise this diet seem to be the key factor in its ability to increase health. The food and drinks that comprise this diet provide plant polyphenols along with omega-3 fatty acids. Plant polyphenols are complex biological molecules. While best known for their ability to protect against oxidative stress, polyphenols' numerous other properties include anti-inflammatory, anti-carcinogenic, antidiabetic, anti-obesity, and anti-allergic properties. Another feature of the Mediterranean-style diet is that it is low in foods that are harmful such as processed carbohydrates, chemically altered oils (trans fats), and processed meats.

Best of all, following this sort of diet does not require deprivation of delicious foods!

Today, I went to the beach front with my
kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her
ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely
off topic but I had to tell someone!
