Dr. Sinatra’s Artichoke Salad

Full of bold flavors, this salad is a great way to incorporate artichokes into a main meal. Not only will it hopefully delight your palate, but it can also help you stay healthy. How? Artichoke hearts help promote detoxification by supporting liver function. Onions contain compounds that support heart health. Red bell peppers are full of beta-carotene, an important antioxidant for vision and eye health as well as immune system function; be sure to go organic with bell peppers, though, as they tend to be the highest in pesticides (if you use tomatoes instead, you’ll get lycopene, a powerful antioxidant)....

Mediterranean Gazpacho

I'm a huge fan of tomatoes - they are absolute nutrition powerhouses, full of vitamins and heart-healthy antioxidants like lycopene (which also gives tomatoes their red color).

On hot summer days, there's nothing like this Mediterranean Gazpacho recipe to cool and vitalize you with tomato nutrition!

The Secret to Vitality: High-Vibrational Living

Do you ever wonder if authentically happy, healthy-looking people have a secret that they’re not sharing? That they know something you don’t? As a cardiologist and anti-aging physician who’s spent a career connecting the dots between physical, metabolic, emotional, mental, and even spiritual aspects of health, I’ve realized that the big “secret” to a full and healthy life is actually pretty simple: It’s all about maximizing our own energy and being in harmony with the natural energies around us.

Here are seven steps you can take to get healthy and stay healthy. 1. Follow an Anti-Inflammatory Diet Most people go on diets to lose weight. And, sure - maintaining a healthy weight is very important - but so is avoiding foods that cause chronic, low grade inflammation (like sugar and bad fats). For this reason, the anti-inflammatory diet I recommend over all others is Pan-Asian Modified Mediterranean, or “PAMM” diet. Essentially, PAMM... Continue Reading

5 Things to Know Before Buying Olive Oil

The good news about olive oil – a cornerstone of the heart-healthy Mediterranean Diet and one of my most-recommended superfoods – just keeps coming. Even the FDA now recognizes that: “Limited and not conclusive scientific evidence suggests that eating about 2 tablespoons (23 grams) of olive oil daily may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease due to the monounsaturated fat in olive oil. To achieve this possible benefit, olive oil is to replace a similar amount of saturated fat and not increase the total number of calories you eat in a day.” Between its rich monounsaturated fatty acid content...

Delicious, Healthy Salads with Olive Oil Dressing

A salad can be one of the healthiest dishes in your diet – or it can be a diet nightmare! Whether it’s a hit or a miss depends largely on what toppings  and dressings you pick.
