As much as I love eating, I don’t love all the extra pounds that have crept up on me over the years. This past year, while at college, my son successfully lost 65 pounds and his efforts inspired me to lose some weight and get healthier too. I’m not going to lie, it has been a struggle, I like food too much. But…I’ve lost 21 pounds so far. I started with the keto diet, thinking I would like all the bacon, eggs, etc., but am not a big meat eater, so hated it. Late July, I started a modified Mediterranean Diet. The focus of the Mediterranean diet is fresh fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains, with minimal meat, sugar, and refined carbohydrates. Healthy Ginger Garlic Noodles with Chicken is one of the new dishes I created since I’ve started the Mediterranean diet. Surprise, surprise, my family loved it and your family will love to too, whether you are doing the Mediterranean Diet or not!
