The Mediterranean diet comes from historic and social patterns of seating in southern Italy, Greece, Turkey and Spain. The Mediterranean diet is not only tasty, it’s healthy! The Mediterranean way of eating is so good because it emphasizes eating plant-based foods and healthy fats. The diet also happens to be built on anti-inflammatory foods! Staples of this diet include vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, nuts, fish and olive oil. High-fiber and plant based proteins are additional benefits of the Mediterranean diet. Furthermore, the Mediterranean diet is very low in processed foods and sugar which often cause inflammation in the body. By focusing on natural, nutrient-dense foods, this diet is a delicious way to maintain a healthy diet, improve metabolism and prevent disease!

We are highlighting the Mediterranean diet because it plays a big role in helping reduce inflammation that underlies several diseases. Research has shown that a Mediterranean diet can protect against the development of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, dementia, Alzheimer’s and some cancers. This diet is further shown to protect cognitive health and improve mood. Since the Mediterranean diet is full of flavor and health benefits, it's a great way to sustain healthy, enjoyable eating habits long-term!
