MAY IS NATIONAL MEDS MONTH!
May is National Meds Month and gives us an opportunity to promote eating the MEDS WAY! During this time you are probably ready to try some new recipes and eat the healthiest you can. Eating like those in the Mediterranean region has been shown to promote health and decrease the risks of many chronic diseases. The MED style of eating has been traditionally practiced in countries that border the Mediterranean Sea. Eating the MED way is not only healthy, but it is delicious and satisfying. Foods that you thought of as too high in fat, or unhealthy including nuts, olive oil, olives and whole grains become a part of your daily diet. The MED way of eating also includes lots of fruit and vegetables, fish, nuts and only small amounts of red meat.
