About Prevention Mediterranean Table
More than 100 fresh, nutritious Mediterranean-style recipes and tips on how to set aside time to mindfully savor each meal, combining healthy food and a healthy lifestyle.
Satisfying both chefs and nutritionists alike, the Mediterranean diet is the rare healthy eating plan that not only tastes good, but also feels good. From seasonal vegetables, fruits, nuts, and grains to garlic, herbs, and olive oil, these foundational ingredients inspire simple fresh dishes with endless combinations of flavors and textures—and don’t forget the wine.
Your doctor will be pleased to know that following a Mediterranean diet is proven to lower bad cholesterol, dramatically reduce the risk of heart disease, and may even protect brain function as we age. And with tasty recipes like Greek Stuffed Tomatoes, Baked Falafel with Tzatziki Sauce, and Orange Hazelnut Olive Oil Cookies for dessert, it won’t be hard!
Beyond just the diet, however, the Mediterranean lifestyle encourages mindfulness with every meal. Permitting yourself to slow down, enjoy food with friends and family, and relish each bite not only improves digestion, but allows you to gain the perspective to better understand your own eating habits and avoid overeating.
