FORT COLLINS - A recent article in the New England Journal of Medicine provided further evidence for what healthcare experts have proclaimed for years: a traditional Mediterranean diet helps your risk of heart disease.

And that's not all! This dietary pattern is also linked to a lower risk of cancer, Parkinson's disease, obesity, diabetes, dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Fortunately, you don't have to live in the Mediterranean to enjoy the benefits; you can incorporate small changes for an overall healthier pattern of eating.

The nutrient-rich foods in a Mediterranean-style diet are multicolored, flavorful and easy to add to your day. Think in terms of what you can have, not what you should eliminate, and try one change each week. If you want to live a longer, healthier life, now is a good time to try incorporating easy Mediterranean habits into your diet!
