The Mediterranean Diet + Baba Ganoush

May marks the celebration of National Mediterranean Diet Month. Who likes foods and drinks from the Mediterranean? I certainly do. To celebrate, I paired up with Oldways to write a short article on the health benefits of a Mediterranean Diet and post a delicious Mediterranean-inspired recipe, Baba Ganoush.

Oldways is a non-profit food and nutrition education organization, with a mission to guide people to good health through heritage. They provide research and promote a “harmony of traditional food patterns, sustainable agriculture, and healthy eating and drinking.” They offer a plethora of resources including health studies and tips for healthy eating, shopping and cooking. I’ve been eyeing up their Culinary Travel section for some time now; Madrid in Fall 2013 sounds good to me :-) And I particularly love their Heritage Pyramids that take into account a person’s background to assist them in making healthier yet practical eating choices.

Please head on over to Oldways for my delicious recipe. Here is the link.

    Thanks for sharing that link. Yes, even I have been exploring on what my ancestors ate and where I am going wrong. That realization made me try dishes with grains like finger millet, red rice et al. Happy memorial day to you as well!
