Did you guys know that it’s Mediterranean Diet Month? I swear there is a day, week, or month for anything and everything now—but hey, I’m not complaining! Austin and I loooove Mediterranean food. Other than good old fashioned Southern cookin’ (I’m Texas born and raised y’all) it’s definitely my one of my favorite cuisines.
I am really into health and fitness, but I also like to eat. If you’re a fellow foodie like me trying to maintain a healthy diet, you probably know how hard it can be to find foods that are good for you that actually taste good. This is what I love most about Mediterranean food—it’s flavorful AND nutritious.
One of the best places to get Mediterranean food on the go is Zoës Kitchen. It’s quick and affordable, but also healthy. Everything is made fresh daily, the portion sizes are generous (coming from someone with a huge appetite), and they have over 200 locations nationwide!
What makes a Mediterranean diet and/or meal nutritious is the emphasis on plant-based foods, healthy fats ( i.e. olive oil), herbs and spices in lieu of salt, and limited red meat. Need a few recommendations? Austin and I ordered the chicken pita, quinoa salad, and the hummus trio from Zoës. Happy Mediterranean Diet Month!
