Mediterranean-style eating focuses on quality over calories
RHINELANDER - Healthy eating can get a little confusing when nutrition standards seem to constantly change.

Mediterranean-style eating has stayed pretty constant as a healthy diet option.

It focuses on fresh food, mainly from plant-based items and healthy fats.

Fish is the primary animal protein in this style of eating, but in smaller quantities.

Registered Dietician Paula Wagler says you should fill half of your plate with fruit and vegetables.

You can take that same logic to the grocery store and just fill up half your cart with produce.

"It's just packed full of nutrients, lots of vitamins minerals. Plant nutrients that we may not completely understand, but we think they fight inflammation and act as antioxidants," says Wagler.

Paula will be teaching Mediterranean-style eating classes in the next couple of weeks.
