Give it a try.

  • Fats -  Use oils such as olive and nut (or whole nuts and spreads) and less margarine or butter
  • Flavor - Use herbs and spices and less salt
  • Protein - Eat more fish, legumes, poultry and less red meat
  • Drink - If you drink alcoholic beverages, consider red wine (in moderation).  If you don't drink alcohol, don't start.
