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.
