oldways_table_bookOur friends at Oldways, a think tank that promotes healthy eating, drinking and lifestyles, have designated the month of May as “Mediterranean Month.” Well-known for their advocacy work around the health benefits of the Mediterranean Diet, Oldways has outlined a number of ways to get involved and eat Mediterranean, including:

1) A Recipe Contest: share your favorite recipe using at least two Mediterranean Diet ingredients;

2) Mediterranean Menu Ideas: a sample menu for seven days of breakfasts, lunches and dinners;

3) Budget Friendly Recipes and Shopping Tips: suggestions on how to save money at the grocery store and over a dozen inexpensive recipes; and

4) Calendar Tips: tips for how to enjoy Mediterranean Month each day of May.

Although there are only a few days in May left, we encourage you to consider every month as Mediterranean month. So get out there and eat Mediterranean! Buon appetito!
