Med Instead of Meds was created by a group of nutrition and health professionals from NC State University and NC Division of Public Health. Eating the Med Way (Mediterranean) has been proven to protect against chronic illness. In some cases, eating the Med Way may even result in decreasing medications taken for blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes.* Hence the name, “Med Instead of Meds”. We are passionate about providing people with the information and tools needed to make delicious meals for themselves and their families. We too are on this journey with you to transform our eating to the Med Way. *Check with your health-care professional before changing any prescribed medications.
Classes include instruction and food demonstration. Topics covered include: Change Your Protein, Swap Your Fats, Eat More Fruit and Vegetables, Snack on Nuts & Seeds, Make Your Grains Whole, and Rethink Your Sweets!
