Protein is a very important part of a healthy diet and can be found in meat, eggs, milk, cottage cheese, beans and legumes and tofu. Consider going meatless one to two days a week and using other protein sources. If you are including meat in your meals, remember that it takes only three ounces of lean meat, chicken or fish to equal one serving of protein.

The Mediterranean diet, which limits red meat and emphasizes fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains and healthy fats, has been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
