The Healthy Choice
We hear so much in the news about what foods are good for us and which foods are bad for us. Sometimes, the information seems to contradict itself or change so regularly that you’re left with the impression that no one really knows with any certainty what we ought or ought not to eat.
But one area where nearly all the experts seem to agree is that the Mediterranean Diet has some very real health benefits. This conclusion isn’t based on guesswork, but on solid science and research.
We invite you to read the articles linked here, and to check back periodically for updated information. Meanwhile, remember that most of our menu items at Ghossain’s, as well as the items for sale in our grocery, can help you make the Mediterranean Diet a healthy part of your lifestyle.
