The Mediterranean diet became trendy in the 1960’s when people started connecting a lower incidence of heart disease in those who lived Mediterranean countries, such as Greece and Italy. Many studies have now shown that the Mediterranean diet can cause weight loss and help prevent chronic disease. There is no one way to follow the Mediterranean diet since there are so many countries around the Mediterranean sea. Although they all focus on a plant-based eating approach rich in fruits and vegetables, whole grains, seafood, nuts and legumes, and olive oil.
Along with moderate portions of dairy products and limited intake of red meat and refined products. Indulge in these Mediterranean-inspired dishes that are bursting with color, packed with flavorful spices and heart-healthy nutrients. Those who follow the Mediterranean diet also believe in moderate intake of red wine. So, cheers!
