Embracing a Healthy Mediterranean Diet

Secondary stroke prevention

Preparing Healthy Food

The world's leading neurologists now report that the Mediterranean eating (diet) lifestyle is scientifically proven to reduce your risk of having a stroke.

Over 80% of strokes can be prevented!

According to recent studies conducted, the Mediterranean eating lifestyle can play a HUGE role in reducing your risk of experiencing a first stroke and preventing secondary stroke.

The Mediterranean diet, or way of eating, is a plant-heavy diet that focuses more on vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, nuts and legumes with some lean proteins from fish and poultry, and good fats from things like extra virgin olive oil.

 

As you see at the very top of the Mediterranean diet pyramid are red meats and sweets which are enjoyed less frequently.

The word "diet" comes with certain assumptions, a set of rigid rules to follow that may have you counting calories and avoiding food groups that your body needs.  Thankfully, that is not what you'll find when eating the Mediterranean way.
