The Mediterranean Diet is a style of eating governed by the culinary traditions of several countries along the Mediterranean Sea. While there's no single defining definition of the Mediterranean Diet, it's typically high in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds, legumes, and olive oil, all of which are high in protein. It doesn't get much purer than that! You can read up on all the latest Mediterranean Diet info at the website link below.

For centuries, the people of the area consuming these natural foods have exhibited some of the healthiest lifestyles on the face of the earth. They live in small families and spend most of their waking hours outdoors walking, rowing, fishing, and roasting on the grill. Because the Mediterranean Diet is a natural diet, you will find almost no refined foods or sugar in it. This is why the Mediterranean Diet is often referred to as a "food pyramid". By consuming such a diet consisting mainly of unrefined carbs, low-fat dairy products, lean red meat, and moderate amounts of seafood, you can be sure you're getting a truly balanced diet with the right amounts of nutrients.

If you want to get the most out of your Mediterranean Diet experience, make sure you always include fruits and vegetables in your eating plans. Try for instance to eat five to six small to medium sized portioned servings of fruits and vegetables each day. Also, it's best if you include food that's rich in iron, zinc, copper, magnesium, vitamin E, and vitamins C and K into your eating plan. Also, be sure to eat an abundance of whole grains, legumes, seeds, and nuts. These simple additions to your diet can be really beneficial for your overall health and eating a Mediterranean Diet will certainly help you do that!
