Some studies have shown that eating nine servings of fruits and vegetables a day could reduce a person’s risk for cardiovascular disease by as much as 60%. An eating style that’s becoming more popular, the Mediterranean Diet, focuses on a holistic approach to incorporating healthy protein and healthy fats, eating more fruits, vegetables and whole grains; incorporating nuts and seeds; and eliminating added sugars. Johnson County K-State Research and Extension nutrition, food safety and health agent, Chelsea Reinberg, discusses the Mediterranean Diet and how its recommendations can help us eat a healthier diet whether or not we’re purposefully following the Mediterranean style.
