Looking for a New Year’s Diet — try this 7-day Mediterranean plan

While I’m not a big believer in the idea that what we eat can impact our health to any major degree (I think heredity plays a much larger role), I do follow guidelines for cutting salt, fat and sugar in my diet because of my past heart health issues. figuring I should use all the weapons available to keep my heart ticking. And when it comes to such efforts, the Mediterranean Diet has repeatedly been recognized as healthiest.

Roasted salmon caprese, one of the seven recipes included in this 7-day plan.

Wondering how to follow it? Here’s a seven-day recipe plan from EatingWell.com that puts you well on your way to be a Mediterranean Diet aficionado.

There are a few meals in this plan I wouldn’t eat, such as the one involving white beans. And, as with any recipe, check the nutrition information before you make any of these.

Watch for levels of salt, fat and sugar. Remember, almost no one eats what is defined as one portion in such recipes, so do the math for how much you think you’d eat to get true salt, fat and sugar content.
