6 Favorite Healthy Meals Of Doctors

Chow down like an MD. 

We’re always looking for healthy meals ideas — and who better to ask than those whose job it is to help people stay healthy? 
We talked to six top doctors to find out their favorites (so we can try replicating them at home, of course).

“I am blessed to be married to an amazing cook, so I am spoiled with frequent delicious healthy meals. But one of my favorites has to be freshly caught local sea bass grilled on the barbecue the same day with lemon, olive oil, and fresh herbs with grilled local and seasonal vegetables.”
- Frank Lipman, MD, integrative and functional medicine expert and author of The New Health Rules

“My wife’s a fabulous cook and has a free recipe site, It’s Mediterranean-style cooking: lots of fish, seafood, and vegetables. It’s hard to outdo grilled wild salmon with a side of quinoa and sautéed vegetables and bread to dip in extra virgin olive oil. It’s loving food that loves me back — food that’s really good for you and has a great variety.”
- David Katz, MD, director of the Yale University Prevention Research Center and author of Disease-Proof: The Remarkable Truth About What Makes Us Well
“For dinner, I often make a large salad with lettuce, fresh tomatoes, artichoke bottoms, cucumbers, and other assorted vegetables, topped off with shrimp, tuna or crab meat.”
- Steven Nissen, MD, chairman of the department of cardiovascular medicine at the Cleveland Clinic 

“A quinoa burger from True Foods Kitchen [in Scottsdale, Arizona]. I’m not a vegetarian, but it’s one of my favorite things. I usually have two vegetarian meals a day.”
- Michael Breus, PhD, sleep expert and author of The Sleep Doctor’s Diet Plan: Lose Weight Through Better Sleep 

“A black bean burger — I like Smashburger’s, but I usually make my own — with roasted vegetables, fruit salad, and sorbet.”
- Hilda Hutcherson, MD, gynecologist and associate dean of the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and author of What Your Mother Never Told You About S-E-X

“Arugula, endive, and onion salad with a little olive oil and pepper, grilled chicken breast, asparagus, broccoli, and a glass of wine.”
- Neal Schultz, MD, New York City-based dermatologist and founder of and creator of BeautyRx by Dr. Schultz.
