Welcome and Happy New Year everyone. Clearly a new year has come and you have now been given a chance to start off fresh. Why not start with a healthier new you? We want to introduce you to the Mediterranean Diet; not your typical so to speak ‘diet.’ Throughout the course of time we will be giving you a preview into the soon to be released book “The Basic Art of Italian Cooking-Healthy & Light” and from this we have produced “The Basic Art of the Mediterranean Diet.” You will be able to view healthy recipes based on this no-diet diet phenomenon, try out recipes for cooking healthier to lighter dishes and acknowledge new ideas on how to stay in great shape. All of this can be maintained through the Mediterranean Diet; join us and you too can join a new lifestyle of staying healthy, getting healthier and being happier.
First things first, you’re probably wondering what this whole craze is about. Be open-minded and don’t view the Mediterranean Diet as a diet per-say; it’s more of a way of life and creating good habits. It is very easy to be discouraged when hearing the word ‘diet.’ One tends to go into negative phase or mode believing that this is just another cool thing to do or latest fad that wears out quick. I have news for you, this is not just a great way to live but there is scientific proof that shows how the Mediterranean Diet has impacted many everyday individuals just like yourself, so don’t give up.
- Consuming a considerable amount of vegetables and fruits regularly
- Focusing on the healthy fats rather than the bad fats (Trans fats and saturated fats)
- Eating as little red meat as possible
- Eating fish on a regular basis
- Drinking Red Wine in moderation
- Eating Small Portions of Nuts
Each component will be further discussed as we progress through the “Basic Art of the Mediterranean Diet”. Look forward to a more direct approach at the health benefits of living the Mediterranean lifestyle and how simply wanting to change will truly be a mind, body and soul experience. These therapeutic effects will be a life-long change for the better. With this I hope that you will become motivated and give this new approach a try because your heart will love you for it. Look forward to hearing more about why the Mediterranean Diet leads to a longer life, how this diet can prevent cancer and heart disease, and much more. Stay Tuned!
