The popularity of the Mediterranean Diet has been steadily increasing in recent years, thanks to its many health benefits. Studies focusing on Mediterranean food show that “going Mediterranean” can lower the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and depression. Consisting primarily of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts, seeds, herbs, spices, and olive oil, Mediterranean food is rich and tasty, as well as nutritious. You will see a happier, healthier person in the mirror when you limit processed foods, reduce your sugar intake and make room for the heavenly tastes from our part of the world – Anatolia.
The olive oil in the Mediterranean diet can quickly satisfy hunger and lead to fewer total calories ingested at mealtime. Additionally, most doctors advocate lowering total fat and calories in your diet, and substituting butter, margarine and tropical oils with healthy fats like olive oil.
