Simple Take on the Mediterranean Diet

We talk a lot about the Mediterranean Diet at 31Daily. You will find lots of menus and meal plans featuring this lifestyle way of eating. It’s intuitive for me because, looking back, it’s the way my mother made our family meals growing up.

Always healthy, always delicious, and always featuring whole foods. So, it was a natural extension for me to continue that tradition with my own family.

If you’re new to the Mediterranean Diet, here is a simple take on what it is. Eat more fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, fatty fish, and whole grains. And, limit saturated fat and added sugar. Studies continue to show that following this diet “reduces the risk of metabolic syndrome, obesity, type 2 diabetes, certain types of cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.”

Late Winter Mediterranean Diet Dinners Menu

Monday’s dinner is a transition meal between the chilly days of winter and the still kind of chilly days of early spring. It’s hearty, delicious, and filled with good-for-you Mediterranean ingredients. Serve with a big salad and whole grain pita or bread if desired. Save or freeze the leftovers for healthy lunches!

Tuesday’s dinner is a Mediterranean take on Taco Tuesday with a simple but delicious and nourishing meal on a sheet pan. Add all the avocados and toppings for a delicious weeknight dinner that’s ready in 30 minutes.

Wednesday’s dinner is a personal favorite– I think it’s the yogurt cucumber salad that gets me every time. This simple-to-make skillet dinner is designed for mid-week meals and is delicious.

Thursday’s dinner is pasta night, Mediterranean style. A simple meal packed with ingredients like artichoke hearts, olives, greens, feta, and spices. While this is a meatless pasta, it’s easy to serve with protein, too, and is ready in 30 minutes.

Friday’s dinner is a quick and easy seafood dinner that’s ready in 15 minutes. I’ve made it using bok choy, but you can substitute any of your favorite greens for a healthy Mediterranean Diet meal.

The Treat is all about the season to come. It’s lemony, made with Greek yogurt, and completely delicious!

Have a beautiful and healthy week!
