ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET


"Let food be thy medicine and let thy medicine be food." (Hippocrates)


You’ve probably heard of the Mediterranean Diet, which is a nutritional model, a Unesco heritage, inspired by the typical diet of Southern Italy, Spain and Greece and includes precisely the foods of which these lands are rich.

In this article we will find out why it is such a popular diet all over the world and I will provide you with a typical day's menu, based on this diet and the list of foods you can buy to get maximum benefits.

WHY IS THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET CONSIDERED A SUSTAINABLE FOOD PLAN?

Eating healthy also means taking care of our planet, our food choices have a great impact on ecology and the Mediterranean Diet, in addition to being one of the healthiest, is also the most sustainable.

Here are some examples:

⦁ Cereals, fresh or dried fruit, legumes and vegetables are the basis of this diet and the use of natural resources and gas emissions for crops are significantly lower than a diet based on meat and animal fats.

⦁ The Mediterranean Diet involves the use of seasonal foods, basically, you should eat, what Nature offers at that particular time of the year. By doing so, greenhouse cultivation and the related impacts on the environment are reduced.

⦁ This food plan includes more moderate portions and consumption of whole and under-processed or processed foods.
