What is the Mediterranean Diet?
The Mediterranean diet is a centuries-old way of eating that has become a popular diet in our modern culture. With its focus on a healthy, well-rounded lifestyle, rather than being a fad diet that’s not sustainable, it’s being adopted by an increasing number of people who are looking to incorporate healthier eating habits into their daily lives.
This diet prioritizes portion control and eating more real food, rather than focusing on restrictions and deprivation.
Guidelines for a Mediterranean Diet?
The Mediterranean diet can be summarized into three main guidelines, all of which are easy to remember – and also easy to implement. The first being to eat more of a variety of tasty (and good for you!) foods. This includes vegetables and leafy greens, whole grains, fruits, nuts, beans and legumes, olive oil and healthy fats, dairy, seafood, poultry and eggs, as well as herbs and spices. The second is simply to eat less red meat. And the third is to avoid processed foods, foods with added sugars and refined grains.
