I am a firm believer that you have to add good rather than take away. I have tried taking away my favorite foods and I always fail. It seems I have to add good and the other foods end up replaced with something better.
My niece is graduating this year with a dietician degree and one of her assignments this week was to study and follow the Mediterranean diet. I have reading up on it and I am actually pretty excited about it. It includes most of the foods I love and puts emphasis on fruits, vegetables and whole grains. The only new item I had to buy was really good olive oil. I have nuts, beans, lentils, fruits and vegetables. Oh, and the best part, FISH. Yeah, I got this.
