Outsmarting Disease with the Mediterranean Diet


The Clever Kitchen and the Nourish Program have partnered to deliver the perfect course to help start the new year with a heart-healthy lifestyle change. “Outsmarting Disease with the Mediterranean Diet” is a three-week hands-on cooking course focused on the benefits of the Mediterranean diet, which promotes fresh and seasonal plant-based foods—including fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, seeds, nuts, olive oil, herbs and spices—as well as fish and poultry, while limiting red meats and sugar. 

According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, primary prevention is the most effective and affordable method to prevent chronic disease, and dietary interventions positively impact health outcomes across the lifespan. The Mediterranean diet is not about recipes or diet plan but quality food components. Research has shown that patients who follow the Mediterranean diet have a 30% reduction in death for all diseases.

Attendees will join registered dietitian nutritionist Pam Fullenweider in a fun and engaging setting, as they create healthy, delicious meals in the Nourish Program's state-of-the-art kitchen, using fresh, seasonal herbs and vegetables from the campus holistic garden. By the end of the course, participants will have a menu of seasonal recipes for a week's worth of meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) as well as the understanding to build their own meal plans and recipes based on the Mediterranean diet.
