What I love about the Mediterranean Lifestyle is that it’s not just about deliciously good food, but it’s also about getting together to share a meal, share your hopes and dream and to motivate each other to keep moving, naturally. The Blue Zones group (https://www.bluezones.com) have been investigating this lifestyle for over a decade now...
We grew up not really celebrating Christmas in a big way – well I don’t remember it being a big deal put it that way. Easter is our big celebration for the year so that is more prominent in my memory. But one thing that did stand out over the Christmas season was the abundance of Greek Sweets my mum would cook and always have on hand in case someone dropped by.
During the last couple of weeks I’ve been writing about the Mediterranean diet and it’s wonderful benefits.
Recently the Bloomberg Global Health Index announced Italy as the healthiest country in the world! Despite the struggling economy in this country, they have continued to value healthy eating!
Quite possibly many people have grown up with meat being the foundation of their meals and just a little bit of greenery on the side.
For some it may have been bangers with mash and maybe a serve of beans or peas; for others it could have been roast lamb, lots of potatoes and a little broccoli. And as I write this, I can hear my son in laws cheering for the concept of consuming lots of meat morning, noon and night!
