News You Can Use: All About the Mediterranean Diet

It’s awesome news when we find out that foods we already love are also super good for us (and they miiiight even help you live forever)!

When this new study came out (and the NYTimes pimped it out) we couldn’t help but share the news–and our best Mediterranean Diet recipes with you guys!

It turns out that eating a diet full of fatty fish, nuts, seeds, tons of fresh fruits and veggies, plus plenty of good fats like extra virgin olive oil and avocado can prevent heart disease, heart attacks and strokes by up to 30%.  Like, whoa.

Robyn wrote awesome piece all about it for Seamless.com.  Did you know that she’s their national health consultant and official health coach?  We’re so proud!

Love yourself by cooking for yourself, {tweet that!} and start with these winning recipes this week!
