Celebrate May the Greek Way

by Anne Bennett on May 9, 2012

May is Mediterranean Diet Month. Sponsored by Oldways and the Mediterranean Foods Alliance, this annual campaign strives to generate awareness of the delicious foods and health benefits of the Mediterranean lifestyle.

And that is exactly what it is: a lifestyle. It is not a weight loss diet (although if you follow the recommendations below closely you will lose weight). It is how one of the longest lived people in the world eat every day.

To understand what the Mediterranean diet consists of, read on. You may already be following some of their suggestions, and you may need to work on others.

I’ve recently begun posting more Mediterranean-type recipes, such as the Mediterranean Vegetable Salad. If you haven’t tried it yet, there’s no time like the present! Another recipe that makes a great Meatless Monday entree (See No. 5 below) is One Pot Kale and Quinoa Pilaf.

The Mediterranean people have long known that the foods they grow and eat are some of the most enjoyable, and healthful, on earth.

That’s enough for me! I’m grabbing a bottle of wine, some feta cheese and Greek olives and jumping on the bandwagon.
