Origins of the Mediterranean Diet

In the 1950s, researchers embarked on a wide-reaching study of the food and lifestyle of middle-aged men living in the United States, Europe, and Japan. Specifically on how it related to their risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

In the Seven Countries Study, they found associations between saturated fats, cholesterol levels, and coronary heart disease. But that study also found that people living in and around the Mediterranean — in countries like Italy, Greece, and Croatia — had lower rates of cardiovascular disease than participants who lived elsewhere.

Ultimately, they concluded that their diets, rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, nuts, seeds, lean proteins, and healthy fats, had a protective effect.

Thus, the Mediterranean Diet, a heart-healthy way of eating, has become a lifestyle for so many.

Mediterranean Diet Winter Dinners Menu

Monday’s dinner is all about cozy, warm soup in a delicious vegetarian meal made with a grain you may not use regularly. Plus, it’s ready in 30 minutes.

Tuesday’s dinner is a simple egg-based meal I love to make in the winter. Filled with healthy, immune-boosting ingredients, it’s deliciously simple! Add a winter green salad to round out the meal.

Wednesday’s dinner is another skillet dinner made with chicken, greens, and pasta. Use your favorite, but consider whole-grain pasta for a healthier meal.

Thursday’s dinner is pan seared salmon recipe with the entire meal made in a skillet. Lots of flavor and good-for-you ingredients.

Friday’s dinner is a wrap-style chicken dish with Mediterranean ingredients and flavors you will love. It’s a fun meal that will have the family reaching for seconds!

The Treat is healthy and delicious. If you love chocolate, this is a treat for you.

Have a beautiful week!
