Repost: Mediterranean Diet Recipe Idea

May 18, 2021 | Dr. Melanie Chandler, HABIT FL Director | @drmelaniechandler | Comments (2)

Today is a repost from one of our prior HABIT Program Coordinators, Miranda Morris.  I love that she added a checkmark column to the instructions, so that if it is printed, one can check things off as they go. - Enjoy!

Eating healthy can be hard for a lot of different reasons. In my house, it’s usually because my husband and I are swamped with work and chores. Plus, he is a notoriously picky eater so anything that looks too green will be instantly met with suspicion. Since getting involved with the HABIT Program years ago, I have learned more and more about the impact of nutrition on brain health which has led to us trying to make better choices about what we eat.

I thought I would share this recipe that follows the Mediterranean diet, tastes great, and doesn’t involve a ton of time to make! This recipe serves 4 so we always have leftovers for the next day and the dish reheats beautifully. I hope you get a chance to try this soon! Oh, and let me know how yours turned out. I always like to know how folks change recipes to meet their own preferences. If you like this, check out the Mayo Clinic Cookbook for some other healthy recipes.

Tip: If you sometimes have difficulty following recipes, print this out and place a checkmark by each step once you have finished it so that you won’t lose your place if you get distracted.

Hi Dr. Chandler,
Looks delicious! I also wanted to mention that on http://www.Mayoclinic.org there are a lot of Mediterranean diet recipes. If you got to the search bar and type "Mediterranean diet recipes" a whole list will come up.
