More than a diet, the Mediterranean diet is a lifestyle.
It includes the concern for biodiversity, the encouragement of traditional and seasonal products, the conviviality at meal time and the stimulation of regular physical activity.
Fruits, vegetables, whole grains and olive oil are examples of food essentials on daily life. Red meats and sweet desserts are left for exceptional days.
The health benefits are numerous for example: increased longevity, cardiovascular protection and even reduction of the incidence of cancers.
