What an exciting day we had at Two Greek Girls Cooking’s very first (and world first) Mediterranean Diet Expo on October 21, 2018. The Greek Club in Brisbane was buzzing with over 350 guests, all interested in better health and a long life through implementation of the Mediterranean Diet.
You may know, that as Dietitians and Greek Australians, we are very passionate about introducing Australians young and old and from all walks of life to this scientifically proven way of eating and living for good health and chronic disease prevention.
