Why Eat a Mediterranean Diet?

May is National Mediterranean Diet Month. While we may be more than halfway through, it's never too late to think about healthy eating.

Experts continue to debate on what foods hurt us most and how.  Is it too much bread, too much fat or too much sugar? My personal view is that the problem may simply be the words "too much".

Few,  however, would argue the benefits of the Mediterranean diet. Who, after all, ever heard of too many vegetables?

Research has proven that eating the traditional Mediterranean diet reduces the risk of heart disease. According to the Mayo Clinic, a recent study showed it also may reduce the risk of cancer and cancer mortality and Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases.  You can find this and other interesting information, as well as guidelines on what to eat, here: Mayo Clinic Mediterranean Diet

And if understanding the benefits of eating like you're living in the south of Spain isn't enough inspiration, then perhaps these photo collections will help:
