8 Ways to Follow the Mediterranean Diet for Better Health

Add these key foods of the Mediterranean diet to your routine.

By Brierley Wright, M.S., R.D., EatingWell®

Researchers have been studying the Mediterranean diet for decades, and mounting evidence, including several large, reliable studies, suggests that following a Mediterranean-style diet may help your health. This eating pattern—which involves eating plenty of produce, fish, olive oil and whole grains, and reducing red meat and dairy—has been linked to a lower risk of heart disease, diabetes, some cancers and other health conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease.

How to Make Gluten-Free Baked Goods

Tips and tricks to help you adapt baked goods for a gluten-free eater.

By Stacy Fraser, EatingWell®

Gluten—a combination of proteins found in wheat, rye and/or barley flour—gives structure and elasticity to baked goods. When you remove gluten, the support needed to lift and lighten the treats during baking is missing. The results can be dense, gummy or crumbly. Still, just because you’re eating gluten-free doesn’t mean that you have to forgo all of your favorite baked goods. There are several ways to get around using gluten in baking recipes. Here are some tips for perfect baked goods without the gluten.
