Our friend, Erika Ladd, R.D., gave us this Mediterranean Diet recipe for blueberry muffins that replaces butter with olive oil and adds some wheat flour. The results are wonderful. Enjoy with your breakfast or as a Mediterranean Diet dessert topped with a dollop of Greek yogurt, drizzled honey and cinnamon.

“This program is a way of life, one which I have adopted successfully, and more importantly one which I have sustained for over one year now. My weight remains steady at 160 pounds (down from 216). My energy levels rival that of someone 20 years younger than me (I’m now 57), enabling me to exercise in any way that I desire, from lifting weights to intense cardio sessions.”

“After completing my 10-week program, I had a regularly-scheduled appointment with my doctor. Because my cholesterol has always been above the normal range (229 last year) I requested that she test it again this year. I’m happy to report that my total cholesterol dropped to 169, which is in the normal range, and all my other numbers improved as well.”
