Med Instead of Meds for Better Health

— Written By and last updated by

Med Instead of Meds was created by a group of nutrition and health professionals from NC State University and NC Division of Public Health. Eating the Med Way has been proven to protect against chronic illness. In some cases, eating the Med Way may even result in decreasing medications taken for blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes.* Hence the name Med Instead of Meds. We are passionate about providing people with the information and tools needed to make delicious meals for themselves and their families. We too are on this journey with you to transform our eating to the Med Way.

We hope you will check back at this site each Thursday for the next seven weeks for videos, tips and recipes to help YOU eat the Med Instead of Meds way!
