Now that we’re all hunkered down with our loved ones in various stages of quarantine, it might be a good time to think about cooking some new and interesting meals. So today I thought I would revisit an episode from last year on putting the Mediterranean diet theory into practice.
But before I got into the nutritional info, I mentioned a few relaxation or meditation apps and videos that are out there. One of them is called the calm app and it can be found here. There is a 12-minute Zen-type music video with lotus flowers right here. There is a live streaming easy listening jazz instrumental channel that can be found here. This is one-hour of peaceful piano music. This is the guided imagery meditation video that is nice.
In this episode, I mentioned a four-part series on possibly treating or even preventing Alzheimer’s disease with dietary measures. They are episodes 158, 159, 160, and 161. In another episode, I asked the question “Is there a possible link between Alzheimer’s disease and cardiovascular disease?” That episode can be found here. I also have 2 episodes on preventing diabetic complications. They are episodes 216 and 217.
Later on, I mentioned a few recipes that can be converted to Mediterranean-style alternatives. They are pasta Primavera with shrimp and hummus with pita chips. Here is my recipe for a bean and cheese burrito. And here’s the recipe for chow mein with cashews.
