Food Lessons from the Mediterranean
The Mediterranean diet incorporates the basics of healthy eating.

Take a splash of flavorful olive oil and perhaps a glass of red wine, mix with the many other components characterizing the traditional cooking style of countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea, and you have a heart-healthy way of eating.

It has been studied and noted by scores of leading scientists as one of the healthiest in the world.

Amanda Archibald, RD, joins Dr. Susanne to discuss her program "Hearth to Health," which takes people to the Mediterranean to teach them about the Mediterranean diet and why it works so well.
