The Benefits of a Mediterranean Diet in Memory Care.
What is the Mediterranean diet you may ask? Well, it’s more of a lifestyle rather than a formal diet plan. The Mediterranean diet focuses on meals built around certain plant-based foods. Eating this way comprises a diet rich in fiber, monounsaturated fat, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and phytochemicals which numerous clinical studies have proven can protect against the development of heart disease, cancer, dementia, and depression.
