September is the month par excellence of the return to routine and new goals.

The return to routine also requires resuming the usual schedules, healthy habits and daily food. This requires planning and organization. We return home after the vacations with an empty fridge and we must do the shopping again thinking about the type of diet we want to follow.
Our recommendation to resume the current meals is based on the ingredients of the Mediterranean diet. Among the many beneficial properties for health, this type of diet is characterized by using cereals and vegetables as the basis of the dishes accompanied by a small amount of animal products such as dairy, meat or fish. In addition, heart-healthy fats such as olive oil or fat from oily fish and nuts (the famous omegas 3) are also an essential part of the diet. All this is complemented with the consumption of seasonal vegetables and fruits, aromatic herbs and other seasonings.
To do your food shopping our advice is that you first draw up a weekly menu based on the combination of ingredients to get all the necessary nutrients. Do you know the plate method? It is very useful to compose complete and healthy meals, now you only have to do the shopping!
