Playing Why Going Greek Is a Healthy No-Brainer for Debbie Matenopoulos

The Doctors are joined by “Home and Family” host Debbie Matenopoulos, who dishes on the health benefits of Greek food and eating a Mediterranean diet.

The "It’s All Greek to Me" author tells Dr. Ian Smith, "For me and my family, and Greek people in general, food is not just food. Food is about love and culture and inviting people into your home and sharing part of you with them."

Debbie and Dr. Ian note that a Mediterranean diet is believed to lead to longevity, disease prevention, the reduction of inflammation in the body, and the fighting of diseases if you are sick. 

The TV host and author says she always tries to incorporate "whole natural ingredients from the earth" into her dishes. "It's really simple, it's not like a big secret," she says of unlocking the possible health benefits for Greek cuisine and a Mediterranean diet.
