21: Mediterranean Diet Pyramid with Sara Baer-Sinnott
Fad diets come and go, but one style of wholesome eating that's withstood the test of time is the Mediterranean diet. On this week's podcast, I'm celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Mediterranean Diet Pyramid, created by Oldways as a nourishing alternative to the traditional USDA Pyramid. With fruits, vegetables, whole grain and other plant foods as the base and piled high with other wholesome foods like seafood, olive oil, and cheese, my guest Sara Baer-Sinnott, President of Oldways, walks us through the beautiful and delicious nuances of this age-old way of eating. Thanks to the diverse, mostly plant-based ingredients and the wonderful flavors and health benefits, the Mediterranean diet is a keeper as far as I'm concerned. If you love platefuls of pasta, flatbread pizzas smothered with vegetables, and Greek salads brimming with cucumbers and tomatoes, you're well on your way to loving the Mediterranean diet. From Spain and Italy to Turkey and Israel, Sara and I dish about our favorite recipes, including Kisir (a grain dish made with bulgur), and I share my recent adventure in Portugal where I obtained a magnum of olive oil! Join us for an adventure in eating, and cheers to another 25 years of the Mediterranean Diet Pyramid. You can read the full show notes and access the resources at www.lizshealthytable.com.
