Conclusion

Introduction

Americans, unfortunately, have a strange relationship with food. Many advertisements and food shows depict standard American fare as plates piled high with bacon, steak, eggs, meats, and a pile of breads, and call it healthy. We are also constantly eating: each and every celebration of ours is about food, be it birthdays, an evening out with friends, and even the formal office lunch meetings. To lose the weight that we have invariably packed on due to these habits, we try to deprive ourselves through dieting. We count calories, we cut carbs, we spend thousands of dollars on weight loss pills — but in the end, we only feel miserable because of the lack of results.

The Mediterranean diet has come to be known as the World’s Best Plant-Based Diet[2] to lose weight and prevent a host of chronic diseases, without the need for painfully small portions or eliminating whole food groups. The Mediterranean diet isn’t a “diet” at all — at least not in the sense that many Americans understand the word. Rather than a temporary measure to lose weight, it’s a series of habits that create lifelong health.

Many people living in Mediterranean countries — namely Spain, Greece, and Italy — have been eating what has become popular today as the Mediterranean diet for generations. The foods in this diet include high amounts of olive oil, legumes, nuts, seeds, vegetables, and whole grains. It also consists of fish and seafood, which are ideally consumed once or twice a week. Eggs, cheese, and yogurt are consumed moderately, about once a week. The intake of red meat and sweets is kept to a minimum. The people of Greece have been eating this way for centuries, and they are known to have lower rates of obesity[3] compared to other countries. The Greeks have a philosophy in life: everything in moderation. That is the Mediterranean diet in a nutshell. Today, doctors have uncovered the science behind the long-term health benefits of eating the way Greeks do. Based on extensive research proving the advantages of this diet, many of the world’s leading cardiologists[4] are recommending the Mediterranean diet to heart patients.

The Mediterranean diet first arrived in America nearly four decades ago, but it is still highly misunderstood.  This book has been written with that widespread misunderstanding in mind. It is written for families with children, single people, for the aging, the elderly with health issues, and for the vast majority of people who can benefit from understanding that the Mediterranean diet is not just about the food we eat, but also about enjoying meals and life with family and friends.

In the first chapter, we will discuss the health benefits of this lifestyle in detail. We will also debunk some myths surrounding this diet and cover the basics of how to start living the Mediterranean way. Then, we will explore 50 delicious recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.

So let us set sail to healthier hearts, lower BMIs, and a better quality of life!

Chapter 1: Magic of The Mediterranean Diet

What is The Mediterranean Diet?

The Mediterranean diet (or the Med diet, as it is sometimes known) is the name given to the eating habits of people living in the region that surrounds the Mediterranean Sea, including Spain, Italy, and Greece. The inhabitants of these regions are a mixture of Christians, Jews, and Muslims, and each of these religions has added their own distinct flavors to create what is known as the Mediterranean style of eating. For example, Muslims do not eat pork or drink wine; Jews avoid shellfish and pork; Christians drink wine but avoid eating meat on certain days of the week.  These dynamic traditions have all shaped the Mediterranean diet into what it is today.
