A Day In The Life: The Mediterranean Diet


Following a diet of any kind can be tough to stick to. Can I have a slice of pizza with friends or no? Is bread allowed on this diet or no? Going through the motions, keeping track of what you can and can't have becomes difficult unless there's a mental shift from a diet to a way of life.

Whether you're following a diet, meal plan or simply eating what your heart desires I urge you to consider The Mediterranean Diet. This video walks you through a day in my life as I incorporate aspects of the diet into my daily life beginning with breakfast, ending with dinner and even precious time with friends. It's me in the video, but not my voice! ...group projects require delegation.

What is The Mediterranean Diet? 

The Mediterranean Diet is not a typical diet, but rather a lifestyle based on traditional foods (and drinks) of countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea. The "diet" includes foods, activities, meals with friends and family and wine in moderation at meals. Physical activity and socialization with others is at the base of this diet with lots of whole grains, fruits, vegetables and seafood at each meal.
