Mediterranean Diet

The Mediterranean diet is a way of eating that is inspired by the traditional cuisines of countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea, such as Italy, Spain, and Greece.

It is characterized by an emphasis on plant-based foods, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and nuts, as well as olive oil as the primary source of fat.

In addition, the Mediterranean diet includes moderate amounts of poultry, fish, and dairy, and small amounts of red meat.

One of the key features of the Mediterranean diet is the use of olive oil as the primary source of fat.

Olive oil is a monounsaturated fat, which has been shown to have a number of health benefits.
