THE MEDITERRANEAN WAY

Why it's your most healthy diet

ChefMéd doesn't just bring you delicious recipes and authentic ingredients, we go one step further, providing you with the details concerning the nutritional value of the key ingredients used in the Mediterranean diet. We have a well-respected team of doctors, including GPs, Cardiologists and Gastroenterologists to help agree and approve the medical evidence. Let's look at why the Mediterranean Way is your most healthy diet.

 

A typical Mediterranean diet has lots of vegetables, fruits, beans, herbs, cereals and cereal products, such as wholegrain bread, pasta and brown rice. Fish, white meat and some dairy produce are also features of a Mediterranean diet. Olive oil (a monounsaturated fat) is a key ingredient and nuts, seeds and oily fish add polyunsaturated fats. These items may be considered healthy on their own, but it's the combination of these ingredients that makes the Mediterranean diet such a healthy way to eat.

 

Research has shown that the Mediterranean diet may reduce the risk of conditions like raised cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, and high blood pressure, which are all risk factors for heart disease
