Delicious and Healthy
May is Mediterranean Diet Month
May is International Mediterranean Diet Month and marks the 20thanniversary of the food and nutrition nonprofit Oldways’ introduction of the Mediterranean Diet here in the U.S.
There is no better time to discover the delicious foods and proven health benefits associated with this vibrant lifestyle. Products inspired by the region, include sun dried tomatoes, olive oil, olives, hummus and Greek yogurt.
“Even 20 years later, the beauty of the traditional Mediterranean Diet is that, unlike restrictive fad diets, it celebrates cooking and eating simple, wholesome, minimally processed foods as well as being active, enjoying delicious meals with friends and family, and drinking wine in moderation with those meals,” said Sara Baer-Sinnott, president, Oldways. “With more and more research pointing to the health advantages of the Mediterranean Diet, including a first-of-its-kind clinical study showing its impressive cardiovascular benefits, it is the perfect time to celebrate International Mediterranean Diet Month.”
