Med Instead of Meds was created by a group of nutrition and the health professionals from NC State University and NC Division of Public Health. Eating the Med Way (Mediterranean) has been proven to protect against chronic illness. In some cases, eating the Med Way may even result in decreasing medications taken for blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes.*Be sure to ask your health-care professional before changing any prescribed medications. 

We are passionate about providing people with the information and tools needed to make delicious meals for themselves and their families. We too are on this journey with you to transform our eating to the Med Way.

For more information and Med Way recipes, visit the Med Instead of Meds site.


UPDATE: Med Instead of Meds is being offered virtually this fall. The next program starts on November 5th at 1:00 p.m. Please register by visiting our Eventbrite page. Please email Meghan Lassiter, meghan_lassiter@ncsu.edu with additional questions!
