The Mediterranean way of eating is delicious and satisfying. Eating like those who live in the Mediterranean region has been shown to promote health and decrease the risk of many chronic diseases, including certain types of cancers, Alzheimer’s disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular disease. This lunch and learn will provide you with Med hacks and tips to eat the Med way. Each session will consist of a short lecture on one of the 7 steps to eating the Med way and a live food demonstration of one of our Mediterranean recipes. Participants will learn steps to:

Change your protein

Swap your fats

Eat more fruits and vegetables

Snack on nuts and seeds

Make your grains whole

Rethink your sweets
