Discussions about healthy eating, exercise and other health promoting activities are common in my office. Perhaps you would like to learn more?

What follows are some pdf files to download, book suggestions and links to visit.

Food

 "Eat food, not too much, mostly plants" says author Michael Pollan.  Excellent advice. 

Mediterranean Diet 

High olive oil consumption, high consumption of legumes, high consumption of unrefined cereals, high consumption of fruits, high consumption of vegetables, moderate consumption of dairy products (mostly as cheese and yogurt), moderate to high consumption of fish, low consumption of meat and meat products, and moderate wine consumption.  A good place to get an overview is at wikipedia.  So, practically, what do you eat?

Legumes, also known as beans, peas and lentils, are cheap, often grown in Michigan, and incredibly good for you.
