Ode to Chocolate

Ode to Chocolate
Guest Blogger Contribution.
Ah chocolate, oh dark mystery of delight; on my tongue, the pleasure, on my hips, the blight. From far away in hot, tropical climes; thou art gathered by slaves, but I can pretend “Not mine!” Thy narcotics lull my senses into blissful transport; away from my problems, an escapist passport! Bitter as gall...

Is Olive Oil Really "Heart Healthy?"

Is Olive Oil Really "Heart Healthy?"
Olive oil is as American as baseball and apple pie. Its monounsaturated omega-3's have long been touted for being "heart healthy." But if olive oil ready did protect our hearts from heart disease, then why do one out of every three Americans die from it? Perhaps it doesn't really protect our hearts after all. Clever...

Mediterranean Diet - Healthy IN SPITE OF Olive Oil

Mediterranean Diet - Healthy IN SPITE OF Olive Oil

Think of a heart healthy diet, and I bet the Mediterranean Diet comes to mind. Its popularity comes from the foods that were once typically eaten in countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea.

Looking back at the data collected from the 1950s-1960s, we see that the Mediterranean Diet was based largely on whole plant foods, with the emphasis on fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, beans, legumes, whole grains and breads. Olive oil, fish and wine were an additional component to this diet. Highly processed foods and unhealthy hydrogenated and saturated fats such as butter and coconut oil were avoided as well as salt and sweets. Eggs, meat, and dairy were eaten in limited amounts. Exercise was also an important constituent of the Mediterranean diet. Americans looking for a "heart healthy" diet believe they are consuming the Mediterraniean diet by pouring olive oil on their food and adding a glass of wine to their meals.
