Laurie's Tip

May is Mediterranean Month!  The Mediterranean diet focuses on plant based foods – fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes and nuts.  It also includes healthy fats like olive oil, and fish at least twice a week.  Evidence shows that following this way of eating can help with weight loss, reduce risk of heart disease, fight certain cancers and more!  This recipe is a simple and affordable way to include a serving of fish per week by using canned salmon (be sure to choose the low sodium version).  You can enjoy this in a lettuce wrap, whole grain tortilla or on top of a salad.
