As a wellbeing author (Book: Diary of a Modern Day Goddess), lifestyle journalist (food, travel, wellness magazines) and an independent filmmaker, Cynthia was delighted to experience, first-hand, farm-to-table Mediterranean cuisine and Crete’s culture, ancient history, village life and its warm, friendly people. The fact that Crete is the island where the Mediterranean Diet’s longevity research first took place was extra special for her as she enjoys researching how food and lifestyle affects one’s well-being. The 15-year research study headed by Ancel Keys, started in the late 1950’s and was called, “The Seven Countries Study.” It confirmed that Cretan island villagers had the lowest heart disease rate in the world giving the Mediterranean Diet its gold standard.
