Nutrition Decisions Mini-Series: Steps to Eating the Med Way

The response to the first Med Instead of Meds webinar was overwhelming and we want to give you the tools you need to Go Med AND answer all of your questions. As you know, the Mediterranean-style eating pattern has been shown to promote health and decrease risk of many chronic diseases. Eating the Mediterranean way is not only healthy, it is delicious and satisfying. Foods that you once thought of as too high in fat or unhealthy, including nuts, olive oil, olives, and whole grains, become an everyday part of your diet. This webinar mini-series will demonstrate simple steps to eating the Med way by making easy changes to the foods you eat. Additional resources for eating the Med way can be found at medinsteadofmeds.com.
