More reasons to eat a Mediterranean-style diet

The people of the Mediterranean region historically focused on whole foods including fruits, veggies, grains, and legumes. Fish were consumed when available, usually 2-3 times per week.  Olive oil and nuts were consumed regularly. Now science tells us that this is a “low-glycemic load” diet. What this means is that there are not huge fluctuations in blood sugars during the course of the day when one follows this eating pattern.  Stabilizing blood sugars makes us feel better and has the wonderful affect of minimizing belly fat.

See if you can add just one serving of veggies to your diet each day this week. Let’s make being healthy fun and “doable!”
