Health professionals worldwide are continuing to encourage all of us to eat our way to optimum health. Many doctors, specifically cardiologists, agree with vocal dieticians who insist that the most powerful medicine is food.
A plant-based diet not only increases overall health and vitality, but it has proven to help reduce the rate of heart attacks. Medical literature does not suggest that we avoid any one food group, such as meat or dairy. A diet that is varied and interesting encourages all of us to stay on track. The keys seem to be moderation . . . and plenty of vegetables!
Several large studies have examined the relationship between the eating habits and the chronic diseases of the study participants who suffered from those disorders. Many, including two of the largest of these trials, found that people who ate eight or more servings of vegetables daily were 30 percent less likely to suffer a heart attack or stroke than those participants who ate one and one-half or fewer servings.
To keep it interesting and optimally healthy, we should eat at least five cups of vegetables and fruits each day, every day. This month’s “very veggie” pizzas from your favorite Pizza of the Month Club can help you tastefully achieve that goal!
