Luckily for my health, Italian cuisine follows the Mediterranean pattern of eating&mdash;it focuses on simple, natural ingredients, such as tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, dark leafy greens and whole grains, making it one of the world&rsquo;s healthiest diets. Research suggests that the benefits of a Mediterranean-style eating pattern may include improved weight loss, better control of blood-glucose (sugar) levels and reduced risk of depression.</p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/healthy_cooking_blog/8_italian_foods_you_should_be_eating#comments Healthy Cooking Blog Health Michelle Edelbaum Nutrition Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Tue, 25 Oct 2011 16:14:03 +0000 Matt Malenczak 18078 at http://www.eatingwell.com Healthy Waffles and Pancakes on the Way! http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/michelle_edelbaum/2011_03_30/healthy_waffles_and_pancakes_on_the_way <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/michelle_edelbaum/2011_03_30/healthy_waffles_and_pancakes_on_the_way" target="_blank"><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/healthy_waffles.jpg" alt="Healthy Waffles and Pancakes on the Way!
