Eating the Mediterranean Way (also known as Med Instead of Meds) was created by a group of nutrition and health professionals from NC State University and NC Division of Public Health. Eating the Med Way (Mediterranean) has been proven to protect against chronic illness.

Topics covered include: Change Your Protein, Swap Your Fats, Eat More Fruit and Vegetables, Snack on Nuts & Seeds, Make Your Grains Whole, and Rethink Your Sweets!

Intro to the Med Way

The Med Way is based on how people historically ate in the Mediterranean region and is not necessarily reflective of how people in the Mediterranean currently eat. As such, a modern Mediterranean flavor profile is not necessarily consistent with the Med Way. Med Way dishes can fit into any flavor profile – Italian, Greek, Indian, Mexican, or simply delicious. Med Way dishes are defined by the components that make up what you’re eating (i.e. high-levels of fruits and vegetables, high-levels of mono- and poly-unsaturated fats, lots of fish – not so much red meat), not by a dish’s flavor profile.
