Welcome to My Mediterranean Journey:
Hello there, lovely readers! I’m May, and I’m super excited to have you join me on this adventure. In this blog, I’ll be sharing my personal journey and growth through the wonderful world of the Mediterranean diet.
Let’s start by taking a peek into my background. Currently, Toronto, Canada is my home. However, I was born and grew up in Latakia, a charming coastal city in Syria. It’s a place known for its Mediterranean vibes and cultural richness. From the tasty food to the soothing seaside atmosphere, Latakia weaves together flavors, textures, and aromas that are all about its deep connection to the ocean.
My journey into the world of food began right at home, in my mom’s kitchen. There, I learned how to make incredibly healthy and seriously yummy Mediterranean dishes. As time went on, I figured out the secrets behind cooking these delicious meals that not only make your taste buds dance but also do wonders for your overall well-being. With tips and recipes passed down through generations, I fully embraced the magic of Mediterranean cooking.
A Turning Point: My Health and the Mediterranean Diet
This blog isn’t just about food – it’s about how the Mediterranean diet changed my life. A few years ago, I faced an autoimmune disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, that pushed me onto this path. This experience led me to find ways to boost my health while enjoying tasty and good-for-me choices. I started with loads of veggies and refreshing salads, and then slowly added white meat, poultry, and fish. My food journey became a mix of flavors and health benefits.
A Symphony of Ingredients: Creating Yummy Meals
Imagine grains like quinoa, lean proteins like chicken and fish, and the burst of vitamins from fruits – all making their way into my meals. These additions didn’t just make my meals exciting but also contributed to my overall well-being. Extra virgin olive oil, a Mediterranean favorite, has been my trusty companion since day one.
Sharing the Journey: Mindful Eating
I’m passionate about mindful eating, and that’s what this blog is all about. I’ll be sharing tips that make sense, recipes that make your mouth water, and stories that inspire. Whether you’re new to this journey or have been on it for a while, there’s something here for everyone.
Remember, your health matters most. Before making any big decisions about your health, it’s really smart to talk to your doctor. It’s a responsible step that ensures you’re on the right track.
