Living Mediterranean style

|

It’s no breaking news that a Mediterranean diet is probably one of the most healthy ways you can eat.

My husband and I are trying to focus on this food philosophy, and I’m hoping we can get the kids eating more like Europeans. Even though American junk food is exported worldwide, the Europeans, for the most part, have been able to maintain their healthy food habits.

My hat’s off to them.

Despite the fact that I edit a women’s health magazine, I am overweight. Yes, I need to exercise more. But I also need to eat more carefully and focus on what my body really needs for nourishment rather than just what looks good to me.

Hopefully I can find foods, particularly snacks, that do both.

So I’m looking to expand my loose Mediterranean diet into something more authentic. To pretend — when it comes to food — that I don’t live here in the American land of junk food.

I’ll let you know how it goes!
