Experience the Benefits of the Mediterranean Diet with Peloponnese® - #HormelFamily

One of the best ways to build a healthy lifestyle is by practicing good eating habits. A study recently published by the New England Journal of Medicine, found that the Mediterranean Diet decreases the chance of heart attacks, strokes and death from cardiovascular disease by a staggering 30 percent. Those who enjoy meals based on the Mediterranean Diet have replaced red meats and sweets with a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, olive oil, nuts, whole grains, seafood, poultry and select dairy products.

An expert in Mediterranean cuisine, Peloponnese® Mediterranean Foods offers products made with fresh, natural ingredients exported straight from Greece to America. From savory olives to flavorful spreads, you can enjoy a fulfilling and delicious meal, while benefitting their heart and health. The following are a few of the many products offered by Peloponnese® Mediterranean Foods that can be used to create a Mediterranean lifestyle:

 Peloponnese® pitted Kalamata gourmet black olives are perfect for topping on salads, paired with hummus or just enjoyed as a snack between meals.

 Peloponnese® hummus spread combines Mediterranean favorites like chick peas, tahini and extra virgin olive oil, and is a flavorful addition to any vegetable platter, sandwich or wrap.

 Peloponnese® sweet pepper strips with roasted florina spices up seafood and poultry dishes with bold ingredients including paprika, garlic and roasted red peppers.

What’s your favorite Mediterranean-inspired dish to prepare?

I'm not a huge hummus fan, but I usually serve it at parties and it;s one of the first things to go.

I have had hummus once and didn't like it so haven't tried again. I don't think I've ever eaten or cooked anything Mediterranean.
