Who is it good for?
Most of us would benefit from eating this balanced diet of natural whole foods, but it’s particularly heart friendly. Like
the Mediterranean diet, it is low in saturated fat because it contains very limited meat and dairy. What’s more, eating oily fish two to three times a week will provide lots of omega 3 fatty acids, which help to ward off heart attacks, strokes and inflammatory
conditions such as arthritis. Local and seasonal produce will not only taste better, they will be better for you, too, because most fruit and vegetables reach their nutritional peak when they are ready for harvest – the less they travel before being eaten the more vitamins and antioxidants they will retain. So it makes perfect health sense to buy locally. And
animals that have had a happy life – ie, grazed wild on pasture – taste better than grain-fed animals.
