Basic Mediterranean Reset

 

I've put together a sample menu to give you a starting point for your new diet. Download this chart to get the details of the diet. Each recipe specifies quantity. Adjust as needed. This is meant to be a jumping off point and will need to be adjusted based on number of eaters. If you're a fan of leftovers or are cooking for 1 or 2, this menu could be extended to last 10-14 days.
