‘Med instead of meds’ for better health program set

The Mediterranean-style eating pattern incorporates the basics of healthy eating that are traditionally practiced in the countries that border the Mediterranean Sea. Eating like those who live in the Mediterranean region has been shown to promote health and decrease risk of many chronic diseases.

Eating the Mediterranean way is not only healthy, it is delicious and satisfying. Foods that you once thought of as too high in fat or unhealthy, including nuts, olive oils and whole grains, become an everyday part of your diet.

Learn more about eating Mediterranean-style with lots of hands-on opportunities during this six-week program. Classes will be Tuesday evenings (April 30 – June 4) from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Tyrrell County Cooperative Extension Center. Participants will enjoy informative presentations, educational handouts and recipes and plenty of cooking and taste-testing.

The program is free due to a grant from Vidant Chowan Hospital, but pre-registration is required by April 22. Contact Dee Furlough at dee_furlough@ncsu.edu or 796-1581 today to sign up.
