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.
