• Increased life span
• Improved brain function
• Lower risk of certain cancer
• Lower risk of heart disease
Celebrate your health and the Mediterranean Diet by:
1. Learning to cook Mediterranean style dishes by watching BlueZones cooking demonstrations.
2. Hosting a Mediterranean themed potluck with your family.
3. Planting a garden with fruits and vegetables.
4. Enjoying Wine@5 with friends.
