Learn about the Mediterranean Diet with Oldways

The Oldways Mediterranean Diet Challenge is the easiest way to start eating the Mediterranean Diet.

Oldways, a nutrition education nonprofit instrumental in introducing the Mediterranean Diet in the US nearly 30 years ago, invites everyone interested in eating well to participate in an annual Mediterranean Diet Challenge. The Mediterranean Diet Challenge is the easiest way to start eating the Mediterranean Diet, named the Best Overall Diet in U.S. News & World Report’s diet rankings for the fourth year in a row.

Challenge participants follow the Make Every Day Mediterranean: An Oldways 4-Week Menu Plan book, which includes delicious breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes from across the Mediterranean, such as tabbouleh, lentil soup, and pasta puttanesca. Participants share questions, tips, and encouragement through the Make Every Day Mediterranean Facebook Group.

“The benefits of the Mediterranean Diet are validated by medical and nutrition experts time and time again. 2021 is the fourth consecutive year that U.S. News has ranked the Mediterranean Diet as their #1 Overall Best Diet is the perfect year to give it a try!” said Sara Baer-Sinnott, President of Oldways. 

The Mediterranean Diet was also declared the best diet in five other U.S. News & World Report’s diet rankings including:  Best Heart Healthy Diet, Best Plant-Based Diet, Best Diabetes Diet, Best Diet for Healthy Eating, and Easiest Diet to Follow.
