One plan that I like to share with my patients is the Mediterranean diet. It's not a diet that you start and stop. It's a specific pattern of eating, not specific dishes or cuisine. Its pyramid reflects the traditional food patterns of countries around the Mediterranean whose people had little incidence of heart disease, diabetes or cancer. PineandLakes.com Illustration

Never before had any of us seen fruit on it until one day I was walking the driveway at the end of my first summer back from college. There was a tree with big green orbs hanging from it. I looked and behold, a big apple tree just covered in fruit. PineandLakes.com Illustration

I have gathered several recipes for slow cooker crockpot chicken and dumplings. By combining and using a few different seasonings, I came up with a recipe that suited my tastes. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts, but you could replace those with boneless, skinless chicken thighs if you prefer dark meat. PineandLakes.com Illustration

The traditional meal on a stick is the shish kabob - a combination of about any type of meat and a few vegetables, which is a whole meal in itself. The Grilled Jerk Chicken Kabobs have a bit of a zing. But you can control the heat by adjusting the amount of seasoning you sprinkle over the top before grilling. PineandLakes.com Illustration
