Organic olive oil producer Bellucci Premium responds to an article published by the Wisconsin State Journal that provides a list of health and fitness tips for the New Year.
In an article published by the Wisconsin State Journal on January 1st titled “Experts offer tips on health and fitness for the New Year,” Dr. ZorbaPaster, a family physician, offers tips for a healthier New Year. First, he says to think of sitting as the new smoking; he believes a sedentary lifestyle is just as detrimental as smoking. He says an easy solution to this problem is to “climb more stairs [and] walk more at lunch and sit less.”
Dr. Paster also prescribes adhering to a Mediterranean diet for those looking to improve their health this year.The Mediterranean diet is rich in olive oil, consists of mostly vegetables, fruits, lean meats, and completely excludes processed food, refined sugar, and white flour. He says, ”Folks who live along the Mediterranean Sea live longer than we do. Their plates are filled with colorful fruits and vegetables, with smaller portions of meat and poultry. Fish is an important protein in their diet. Their oil is olive oil. And their favorite snack isn’t pork rinds, it’s roasted nuts.”
Natalie Sexenian, the marketing manager for high-quality Italian olive oil producer Bellucci Premium, says, “The Mediterranean diet has been the key to the longevity for Italians and Greeks, among other groups of peoples. Because of its focus on clean, whole foods and active exclusion of sugar and flour, it makes sense that a diet such as the Mediterranean diet results in a lowered chance of chronic illness.” She says, “Another aspect that makes the Mediterranean diet so healthy is its focus on olive oil. It is a nutrient-rich resource and has been used and renowned for its health benefits for thousands of years. To take it one step further, try an organic Mediterranean diet with organic olive oil at the core.”
Bellucci offers three different types of oil, including an organic option, with a mild peppery flavor and fruity undertones that will satisfy any palate. Bellucci Premium Toscano extra virgin olive oil uses olives that are grown on the beautiful landscapes of Tuscany, and maintained by 3rd and 4th generation farmers. The third type of oil Bellucci produces is the finest 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil, grown in many different regions of Italy.
