"The Mediterranean Movement has been a great inspiration for me to incorporate healthier meals into my weekly cooking.

The recipes you post have ingredients I usually have on hand, the instructions are simple enough to pull off on a busy week night, and the results are mouth-watering!

I didn't realize how easy it would be to commit to healthier eating -- and I love that I still get a glass of red wine too."

"Your blog has been a great recipe source for me!

After almost 6 years of garbage eating, having 3 children, and dealing with extreme anxiety and depression I realized my biggest source of contention was food.

I was diagnosed with celiac disease and lactose intolerance stopped eating overly processed and fast food and have felt so much better since!

I'm now adopting a fully Mediterranean Diet for continued wellness."
