I love making Mediterranean foods – did you know there are a lot of health benefits to eating a Mediterranean diet? Research shows that people following a Mediterranean diet have reduced risk for cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and inflammation (an underlying process of most chronic diseases). Following a Mediterranean diet can also promote healthy weight maintenance.

A Mediterranean diet is packed with plant-based foods, lean meats, and heart healthy fats. The emphasis on plant-based foods means adding a lot of antioxidants (the compounds that give plants their bright colors) to the diet which help fight inflammation. Heart healthy fats are also anti-inflammatory and include avocados, olive oil, nuts, and seeds. To learn more about the Mediterranean diet head on over to Today’s Dietitian.
