The Mediterranean Diet Menu

The Mediterranean diet is based on the traditional foods consumed by people of the eastern Mediterranean - in particular, Crete and southern Italy. When planning the ingredients for dishes in a Mediterranean style, it is good to include variety of products.

The diet includes lots of vegetables, legumes and cereals, fruits, fish and white meat instead of red meat, monounsaturated oils used instead of saturated animal fats and moderate consumption of red wine. Fruits and vegetables are sources of vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants and other nutrients associated with reduced risk of heart and vascular diseases.

Traditional Mediterranean oil produced from olives, nuts and seeds, is characterized by a high content of mono-unsaturated fats and low in saturated fat, and also contains essential fatty acids. These oils protect against heart disease, cancer and help to lower blood pressure and reduce the content of "bad" cholesterol.

However, some components of the Mediterranean diet are known as harmful for health if consumed in excess. When consuming too much oil, nuts or alcohol the body can take more energy than it is necessary and store as fat.

Over time, the healthy Mediterranean diet will become a natural part of an individual lifestyle. Adhering to the Mediterranean diet and maintaining an active way of life are keys to keep people healthy and reduce the risk of various serious diseases.

The Mediterranean Diet Features

Recently it was discovered that people of the Eastern Mediterranean live longer than population of the industrialized Western countries and do not suffer from severe chronic diseases, despite the fact that people in West have a higher level of health services. One of the reasons is the difference in food that led scientists to explore the Mediterranean diet.

Although the diets of the population of Western Europe and the Mediterranean region include the same amount of fat, the Mediterranean diet contains healthy monounsaturated fats, unlike Western diet which is high in saturated fats, leading to clogging arteries.

Usual Western diet contains animal fats and preservatives but not enough fruits and vegetables. Thus, widespread "fast food", causing appetite, contain a lot of unhealthy saturated fats and excess salt. Scientific studies have shown that such food may trigger many chronic diseases. A healthy alternative is to replace the excess salt with herbs, as Mediterranean peoples do.

The Mediterranean diet is not just a list of harmful products. Rather, the Mediterranean diet contains nutrients needed for keeping health through diet every day in the long term. The transition from a Western to a Mediterranean diet menu is a choice of healthy life.

The Mediterranean diet has been tested and found to be containing all the nutrients needed for good health. Moreover, it also prevents excess ingredients associated with poor health. Studies have also shown that stick to the Mediterranean diet helps reduce the risk of developing diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, the risk of early death and chronic diseases.
