The Blue Zones

I would like my life in the U.S. to correspond more to what life is like in the Blue Zones. I feel like I am too spoiled here in the U.S. and have too many creature comforts. In other parts of the world, like Greece or Japan life is not as focused on all of these comforts that we take for granted here. There is more of a focus on an organic lifestyle and a simple life: you take what you need and you have a connection with the Earth that is healthy and positive. Eating well, as the diet tips from the Blue Zones teaches, is one way to help provide this healthy and positive culture (Barclay, 2015).

I am not surprised that I feel this way, as I am naturally drawn to a Mediterranean diet in the first place. I love Greek food and I also love Asian food. I prefer these types of food to the traditional American diet of steak and potatoes. Nothing is more unappealing to me than a big plate of steak. I like foods that have natural ingredients, like salads. I like cheeses, I like wine, and I like olives and fish, and breads.

To reverse this decline, I would highly recommend starting the Blue Zone diet as it will certainly make people feel healthier and want to live a simpler life.
