Maybe you have decided you really want to try out the Mediterranean Diet, but are still hesitant to fully "go Med" because it means giving up some of your favorite foods. Fortunately, that doesn't have to be the case! There are simple flips we can make to help a dish align with the Mediterranean Diet eating pattern. Today we are going to make two of my favorite foods, but we'll be making them Med! N.C. Cooperative Extension - Johnston County Center

Eat More Fruits and Vegetables - There can be a lot of misinformation and confusion about nutrition. However, eating more fruits and vegetables is one thing that most all dietary patterns, nutrition experts, and medical professionals can agree upon. This is because there is so much evidence to support the benefits of a diet heavy in fruits and vegetables. Join us as we make two tasty recipes that incorporate fruits and vegetables! N.C.

I love finding a way to make recipes healthier. Although there are many variations of Shepherd’s Pie, the traditional ingredients include ground meat, gravy, and mashed potatoes. While those ingredients aren’t necessarily a bad choice, we can make them healthier by choosing leaner meats, low-fat milk in our gravy, and using olive oil instead of butter in our mashed potatoes. Don’t worry, this dish doesn’t skimp on flavor and will leave you completely satisfied!

Eating Well for Mental Health – It is often we think of healthy eating for our physical health, but it’s also important for our brain health as well. When we’re not feeling our best mentally, we may have symptoms such as being over tired, mood swings or depression, or inability to focus. Not only is feeding our body important, but so is feeding our brain (in many other ways than just the food we eat). Today we talk about foods that will help to give your brain energy, as well as tips on how to take a brain-break.

Do you struggle with overpaying at the grocery store? Shopping your pantry first and creating meal plans from that list is a great option to reduce your grocery bills. Using the ingredients you already have on hand, create a shopping list of additional items needed. Be sure to stick to your list! Online ordering is a helpful tool to stick to just your list. If you shop in-store, wait until after you’ve eaten, so you aren’t tempted to buy food that looks appetizing at that moment.
