Join CSU Extension Pueblo County Family and Consumer Science Agent, Laura Griffin to learn more about the Mediterranean Diet! Although it is called a ‘diet’, the Mediterranean Diet is not about cutting calories and restricting foods like many popular diet trends in America today. Instead, it is a way of life that involves enjoying a wide variety of whole, nourishing foods with friends and family, as well as practicing an active lifestyle. Dishes from the Mediterranean Diet commonly feature ingredients that you may have growing in your garden like fresh tomatoes, garlic, aromatic herbs, and spices!
