Healthy Eating With the Mediterranean Diet Series

This 6-week series will be focused on the Mediterranean Diet. This way of eating is backed by tons of research supporting the benefits of this way of eating (type 2 diabetes management/prevention, heart disease prevention/management, reduced risk of Alzheimers and some forms of cancer, weight loss and management).

Each week, we will dive deep into a new food group and discuss ways to make healthy decisions when planning your grocery lists. We’ll discuss fats, proteins, carbs, sugar, and fruits and vegetables. You’ll get tons of recipes, tips, and an opportunity to participate in a Facebook group community for participants only!
