In honour of Heart Month this February, this issue of Minute Nutrition News will highlight the Mediterranean Diet, one of the healthiest and most enjoyable eating patterns. Do not mistaken this as a weight loss diet. The Mediterranean Diet is simply referring to the eating pattern of those living in the Mediterranean region, including countries such as Greece and Italy. Read on to learn more about the health benefits of this lifestyle and find out how you can get started to eat well for your heart.
The Recipe of the Month in this issue features a Rapini with Kalamata Olives recipe. Rapini is not a commonly eaten vegetable in Ontario, but it is actually very similar to broccoli and other vegetables in that same family. Give this delicious recipe a try and let us know what you think!
