What is the Mediterranean Diet and Why is It So Effective?

 The Mediterranean diet is a sustainable and holistic way of eating that incorporates healthy food, quality time with friends & family, regular movement and mindful living. This eating pattern puts food first, so you’ll enjoy delicious, real and whole foods–fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fat– that nourish your body and mind. Plus you still get to enjoy a glass of wine? Enough said!
