8 Simple Principles to the
Eating Balanced the Mediterranean Way
This means a more plant based, balanced approach, but don’t let that scare you. It means delicious, natural foods (like nuts and legumes) and using local ingredients where possible. It means using healthy fats like olive oil and avocados, and Mediterranean size portions (which are far more moderate). It encourages eating three delicious meals a day, one glass of wine with dinner, eating until you’re 80% full, and learning to stop before you overeat.
Connecting the Mediterranean Way
If you don’t love to cook, it’s probably because you haven’t discovered the joy of cooking with other people (especially people you love). Having the right tribe of people and connecting with them in the kitchen and around the table regularly helps nurture not only your social circle, but your own health and happiness. In the Mediterranean lifestyle, we cook together, eat together, and create meaningful connections together.
Stress Free the Mediterranean Way
All of us need to slow down. Our days are usually too full and leave little time for rest and reflection. Both are essential for our physical and mental health. The Mediterranean lifestyle encourages time to breathe, taking breaks throughout your day, a good night’s sleep, and time for you. This is accomplished by creating stress-free routines during your day where you can meditate and rest.
Active Naturally the Mediterranean Way
Where can you choose to be more active in your everyday life? Simple choices like walking or biking to work or the store, choosing to take the stairs instead of the elevator, standing up and stretching hourly while working, or taking a short walk after dinner instead of switching on the T.V. can add up to a naturally healthy lifestyle.
Have a sense of purpose the Mediterranean way.
We all need a reason to get out of bed in the morning. Purpose doesn’t have to be a huge, dramatic declaration for your life. It can be as simple as focusing on what you love in the everyday activities in your life.
Practice Gratitude the Mediterranean way
We all have things to be grateful for but often, in the overwhelm and demands of our daily lives, we forget to focus on them. Taking just a little time every day to consciously focus on what you’re grateful for can change your life.
Prioritize your happiness the Mediterranean way.
Often, focusing on what makes you happy leads you to focus on what makes those who are closest to you happy. In the Mediterranean lifestyle, happiness comes from helping others and doing good deeds every day.
Look to try or learn new things the Mediterranean way.
In the Mediterranean, they understand that you’re either growing or dying. Being curious, travel and learning new things not only expands your mind, but also your world.
