Rheumatoid Arthritis & the Benefits of a Mediterranean Diet

This movie requires Flash Player 8

Welcome back to the ChefMD® video blog! The Mediterranean diet comes up in this week’s question and I have some great tidbits for you on walnut oil (rich in plant-based omega-3 fatty acids). Plus the best ways to find good seafood — the kind lowest in mercury, highest in fatty acids, and with the fewest pesticides. The site seafood.audubon.org has terrific seafood wallet cards, and I have plenty more for you in this week blog.

This movie requires Flash Player 8

Welcome to ChefMD®’s first video blog. This week, we answer a question from David in Hagerstown, Maryland. He wonders why I often recommend cheeses and dairy foods that are full fat. It seems to go against a healthy low-fat, healthy mantra, right? Well, I suggest full fat cheeses in some ChefMD® dishes for health reasons. Watch the video to see why.
