  • Nutrition Tip

    Based on the foods found in the Mediterranean region of the world, the Mediterranean diet is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and olive oil. It also emphasizes lean sources of protein, like fish and poultry, instead of red meat, which tends to be high in saturated fat. To get more olive oil in your diet, try using it to saute vegetables or as part of a salad dressing. Whole grains aren’t just whole wheat bread and pasta. Oatmeal for breakfast, brown rice for lunch, or quinoa for dinner would be excellent sources of whole grains to eat throughout your day.
