Eating like those in the Mediterranean region has been shown to promote health and decrease the risk of many chronic diseases. Are you interested in eating the Mediterranean way, but not sure where to start? Med Instead of Meds is a six-session class series focused on eating a healthy Mediterranean-style eating pattern.

The Mediterranean-style eating pattern incorporates the basics of healthy eating that are traditionally practiced in countries that border the Mediterranean Sea. Eating the Mediterranean way is not only healthy, it is delicious and satisfying. Foods that you once thought of as too high in fat or unhealthy, including nuts, olive oil, olives, and whole grains, become an everyday part of your diet.

This Lunch and Learn series will be held from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m., on Wednesday, May 4, 11, and 18, and June 1, 8, and 15.
