Dear Kosterina Family,

Like our counterparts in Greece, we spent much of August unplugging, enjoying time with family and soaking up the Mediterranean sun. But now, we're back and ready for some EVOO! 

During my time in Greece, the lifestyle I was experiencing reminded me of the Blue Zones -- 5 areas of the world that have a higher than average population of centenarians (people who live to be over 100). The island of Ikaria, Greece is one of them and its inhabitants' longevity is attributed to a plant-based diet, adequate sleep, strong personal relationships and yes, even EVOO. If you're as fascinated as I am by this concept, you can explore Dan Buettner's work -- he discovered the Blue Zones. He wrote an article titled "The Island Where People Forget to Die" in the NY Times Magazine in 2012, wrote a book called Blue Zones and more recently appeared on the MindBodyGreen podcast to talk about his newest book, The Blue Zones of Happiness. It's worth a listen!

For those of you who are new here, we will be sharing weekly insights into living a more wholesome, healthy life.  Whether that's our experience testing a plant-based diet, or experimenting with bulletproof coffee - you'll always hear our real, raw thoughts on living a healthier life. 

Oh, and we'll always share a few pieces of bite-sized wellness news and EVOO-based recipes for your repertoire. 

We're so happy that you're here!

Over the past year and a half my wellness routine has changed for the better. And based on recent market research, my own experience is not unique. It seems that many people have given their exercise, meals, mental health and other well-being practices a massive rehaul as our lives have shifted to be more centered at home.
