Izard County Extension Hosts Mediterranean Cooking School
The Mediterranean Diet is a lifestyle approach to healthy eating that includes a balanced variety of foods and daily exercise. The diet is based on the foods and drinks traditionally consumed by people living in countries along the Mediterranean Sea. The Mediterranean Diet includes an abundance of seasonally fresh fruits and vegetables, legumes, nuts, whole grains, fish and small amount of poultry and meats. This class is a hands-on class and various dishes were prepared.
