Laurie's Tip

Happy Mediterranean Month!  Many studies have linked the Mediterranean diet to a lower risk of cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, better cardiovascular health and a longer life.  It is a way of eating that emphasizes plant based foods such as fruits and vegetables, whole grains, legumes and nuts.  It replaces butter with healthy fats such as olive oil and uses herbs and spices instead of salt to flavour food.  Red meat is limited to no more than a few times a month while fish should be on the menu twice a week.  I wanted to give you a recipe that follows these guidelines, that is easy to put together and tastes great!  I hope you enjoy!
