ENC Alliance Spotlight: Oldways and its Mediterranean Foods Alliance

Today we’re highlighting one of our health professional alliances – Oldways and its Mediterranean Foods Alliance (MFA).

We recently partnered with MFA to create an education material, What is the Mediterranean Diet?, and it was also highlighted in their newest online toolkit for the Oldways Nutrition Exchange program. The education material will give our HPs a great overview of the Mediterranean Diet, including some “fun history” on eggs and how they are eaten in tandem with other nutritious and delicious foods in the diet.

ENC also provides nutrition information for their MFA Fresh Fridays, a bi-weekly e-newsletter that is distributed to over 10,000 people.  Our most recent contribution was in their Recipe Remix edition.  Also, be sure to check out their 12 Great Ways to Use Eggs handout and a past Q&A blog with one of our Health Professional Advisors, Mary Donkersloot.

Here is a little more about this group:

Oldways and its Mediterranean Foods Alliance help people live longer, healthier lives by encouraging people to seek out the joys of good foods and drinks, consumed with pleasure, in the company of family and friends. The Mediterranean Foods Alliance works with member companies to raise awareness of the Mediterranean Diet, and to develop and distribute educational Med Diet materials to consumers and healthcare professionals. They advocate for the Mediterranean Diet as a path to good health because scores of leading scientists have rated the it as one of the healthiest diets in the world, while millions of people have rated it as one of the most delicious!

We both focus on healthy food choices and lifestyle habits, and we are egg-cited to continue our partnership with this great group and give eggs the company they deserve.
