Mediterranean cuisine featured for Wellness Wednesday

This week’s topic is Food Culture and Common Ingredients Used in Mediterranean–Style Cuisine.

Wellness Wednesdays, located at the Main Hospital Lobby from 11a.m. to 1 p.m., will emphasize Mediterranean Cuisine. The Thursday Lunch and Learn, located at the MUSC Urban Farm from 12:15 to 12:45 p.m., will focus on the herbs and spices used in Mediterranean cooking along with the nutritional benefits. Ways to incorporate herbs and spices into your foods in a healthy manner will also be discussed. Organizers will feature restaurants from the Charleston area.

This week’s featured restaurant is Lana and a stoplight menu will be available to help customers choose the healthiest options while dining there.
The featured Mediterranean recipe that will be available at World Cuisine in the Main and Ashley River Tower Hospital Cafeterias is Tuscan herb tilapia with Moroccan couscous.
