Happy Mediterranean Diet Month!
Did you know that May is the International Mediterranean Diet Month? If not, you are not the only one. Even I found that out a few years ago.
Established in 2009 by the Oldways organization, International Mediterranean Diet month highlights this heart-healthy lifestyle’s wonders.
Traditionally, the Mediterranean Diet is mostly plant-based; whole grains, legumes, and seasonal vegetables are the bulk of a meal. And, when it comes to flavor and health in one package, the Mediterranean Diet and lifestyle have you covered.
The modern Mediterranean Diet has introduced ingredients and foods from other regions, but their adoption added more variety and flavor complexity.
Maybe you’re a seasoned follower of the Mediterranean Diet or simply curious about this healthy eating pattern and how to get started with the Mediterranean lifestyle.
Are you looking for some healthy and flavorful recipes to start the Mediterranean month.? Check out these recipes.
Also, you can make these quick breakfast non-recipe recipes:
1 egg scrambled in 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, 1 slice wholegrain toast with honey
1 cup wholegrain cereal with milk or plain Greek yogurt and 1/3 cup berries or your preference
Just be mindful of the added sugars in cereals and avoid the sugar-laden ones.
