We’ve been hearing a lot in the news about the “Mediterranean diet”. It’s a way of eating that is based on foods that work naturally with our bodies, helping them stay healthy. As you probably know, the Mediterranean diet is all about fresh fruits, veggies, whole grains, beans, nuts, fish and occasional red meat. The beloved olive oil is of course a big part of this way of eating, as are several other natural oils.
QuickMealHelp.com embraces smart Mediterranean living suggestions in food selection, cooking and meal prep. You’ll notice that some recipes have a decidedly Mediterranean slant—and that’s a fast and easy way to get you eating better everyday—but most are all about using what you already have with a tad of Mediterranean flavor thrown in.
Olive oil is used whenever possible instead of butter, margarine or shortening. And olive oil-based spread is used when needed.
Plenty of fresh and frozen fruits and veggies are utilized regularly.
Whole grains are used when possible—of course, whole grains take longer to cook, so quick-cooking varieties are often the key.
Vegetarian options are routinely offered. Not only better for you (and the earth), it really is possible to cook great-tasting vegetarian-based dinners that can please the whole family. Of course, QuickMealHelp.com knows that die-hard carnivores don’t want tofu foisted upon them daily, so plenty of meat-based recipes are available.
Connection time / Intentional with family and friends is the glue that not only holds families together but makes meal time more than just fueling our bodies. Taking at least 15 minutes to sit down and enjoy each other’s company can turn the day around and have a profound impact on the lives of our children, family, friends and even colleagues and strangers!
Last but certainly not least: remember to drink plenty of water throughout the day. While fiber has been touted as the all-important digestive aid, water is the unsung hero in keeping your cells hydrated while helping you feeling your best (and diet sodas, iced tea and energy drinks don’t count!).
