Mediterranean diet simplified

What food is in Mediterranean diet

The Mediterranean diet is a traditional diet in Mediterranean countries which is high in vegetable and olive oil consumption. It includes the following :
  • vegetables
  • fish and other seafood
  • small amounts of meat and chicken
  • wholegrains
  • fresh fruits 
  • nuts
  • legumes
  • olive oil
  • red wine in small amounts
It is healthy because:
  • the foods contain high amounts of fibre
  • a monounsaturated fat is the main source of fat
  • full of antioxidants
  • fresh food
  • food is prepared simply
  • herbs and spices are used instead of salt to flavor foods
  • there is less red meat than in a typical western diet
  • there is more fish and fruit and vegetables than in a typical western diet

  1. Thank you for this - is going to be fantastic for helping me with my #zerowasteweek challenge

  2. Seems like more and more people are realising the benefits of eating the mediterranean diet. I basically eat like this but without any gluten and try to minimize grains. It really helps my joint pain and dryness in Sjogren's Syndrome.

    Does your website have a contact page? I'm having a tough time locating
    it but, I'd like to shoot you an e-mail. I've got some ideas for your blog you
    might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I
    look forward to seeing it expand over time.
