What is the Mediterranean Diet and Why Should I Try It?

What Do They Know That We Don't?

Potentially the world’s healthiest way of eating, the Mediterranean diet is based on the traditional foods that were consumed by populations in Italy and Greece throughout history.

The diet emphasizes produce, fish, whole grains, and health fats – encouraging a high intake of fiber, moderate consumption of meats and alcohol, and tons of antioxidants. Followers of this diet will also enjoy meals with their loved ones – cooking as a family, eating as a family, and sharing a glass of red wine after dinner as a family.
