The Ideal Meal. Loving it!

red wine and dark chocolateWant to know what researchers came up with when trying to establish what foods make up the ideal meal?

The following is an excerpt from an outstanding book – The Great Cholesterol Myth written by Stephen Sinatra, MD and Jonny Bowden PhD, CNS

“In a fascinating and much-discussed article that appeared in the December 16 2004, issue of the British Medical Journal, researchers put forth an idea called the polymeal.  They examined all of the research on foods and health to see whether they could put together the ideal meal (the polymeal) that, if you ate it every day, would significantly reduce your risk for cardiovascular disease.  They came up with a theoretical meal that, eaten daily, would reduce cardiovascular risk by a staggering 75 percent (there’s not a pill in the world that can do that!) 

The ingredients of the polymeal?

  • Wine, fish, almonds, garlic, fruits, vegetables, and dark chocolate.
