Bellucci Premium, a high quality organic olive oil producer, responds to an article discussing how Doctor González-Valcárcel wants to change the eating habits of the Spanish population and help them transition into a Mediterranean diet and lifestyle.

According to a March 16th article from Le@der titled “The Mediterranean Diet For A Healthier Life,” Doctor González-Valcárcel, of the Hospital Infanta Elena, has started a new diet initiative for the members of the community by providing them with cooking classes and workshops in an effort to stop the increasingly alarming fast food trend. These classes will teach community members how to cook and prepare natural ingredients, properly freeze certain foods, and prepare weekly food menus. These classes and workshops target all ages, with a primary goal of promoting a healthier lifestyle and avoiding common health conditions.

Natalie Sexenian, marketing manager for Italian olive oil producer Bellucci Premium, says, “This initiative set forth by Dr. González-Valcárcel is admirable and smart. With most people’s busy lifestyles, it is convenient to grab a quick meal at a fast food restaurant or heat up a frozen meal. However, can our need for convenience overpower our biological need for nutrients and a clean diet? The Mediterranean diet, which rich in olive oil, lean meats, vegetables, and fruits, promotes a clean, natural diet. Also, by limiting foods like dairy, flour, and sugar, inflammation in the body is reduced, resulting in a lower risk of chronic illnesses.”

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.
