What is the Mediterranean Diet?
The Mediterranean diet is based on the cuisines of cultures around the Mediterranean sea. It's a healthy way of eating that incorporates a lot of fresh vegetables and plant-based foods.
Vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, legumes (like beans and chickpeas), whole grains are the basis for the Mediterranean diet, with seafood, chicken, and lamb also eaten on occasion. The diet minimizes sugar, ultraprocessed foods, refined oils, and red meat.
