RECIPES BASED OFF OF THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET
For those of you that are not familiar with this diet, let me explain some of its key benefits.
The Mediterranean diet has been known to prevent heart disease and strokes, keep you agile, reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, cutting in half your risk of Parkinson’s disease, increases longevity, and can aid in protection against type 2 diabetes.
Some more pros to this heart healthy diet plan is that it covers all major food groups, has diverse flavors, and may be easier to adhere to than more limiting diet plans. The Mediterranean diet comes close to the American Heart Association dietary recommendations.
