Event description
Interested in eating the Mediterranean way, but not sure where to start? Eating the Med way is healthy, delicious, and satisfying.

About this event

There are over 200 food choices that we make in a day. From what to drink to the tiny snacks that we munch on, we make the decision on what we want to consume. Roughly two thirds of the chronic diseases in the US can be prevented by changing our diet and lifestyle patterns. Consuming a Mediterranean diet has been shown to promote health and decrease risk of many chronic diseases.

Food you once though of as too high in fat or unhealthy, including nuts, olive oil, olives, and whole grains, become an everyday part of your diet. The Med Mondays Series will help you go Med by exploring 7 simple steps to eating the Med way.

Join us every Monday starting June 28th at 1pm as we share Med tips, life hacks, and recipe that will help you eat the Med Way every day. Each session will be hosted and recorded via Zoom and shared with participants.

Topics covered are as followed.

  • June 28th: Intro to the Med Way
  • July 5th (No zoom meeting but recording sent out): Changing Your Protein
  • July 12th: Swap your Fats & Snack on Nuts and Seeds
  • July 19th: Eat More Fruits & Vegetables
  • July 26th: Make your Grains Whole
  • August 2nd: Rethink your Sweets

The Mediterranean eating pattern incorporating more plant based products and fits perfectly into the recommended daily consumption from each of the food groups.
