Cruising the Aisles To The Mediterranean
While traveling the world might not be at the top of your to-do list right now that shouldn’t stop you from tasting the flavors of these places. So this week let’s head to the Mediterranean area, shall we? We are encompassing a very large region so our products will stay a little more broad but let your fingers do the walking the next time you are shopping online for these fun foods. We have some amazing products on our shelves to get your taste buds coming alive. So let’s talk about the differences between what our current recommendations are versus theirs.
Differences between the US and the general mediterranean food pyramid is the overarching structure. The US is based on the plate method being divided up into 5 groups and the Meditternean area is based on what to have daily, weekly, and monthly. A large portion of this diet is focused on whole grains, fruits, vegetables, legumes, dairy and healthy fats daily while using meat protein sparingly. Our components remain the same so make sure to follow a lifestyle that works for you and your family and pay attention to hunger and fullness cues.
Products we carry to help you explore this area of the world:
- Fruits and Vegetables
- Grains (couscous, polenta, etc)
- Grape Leaves
