What to Love About the Mediterranean Diet

One of the things to love about the Mediterranean Diet is there are no “off-limit” food groups and intense restrictions.

Instead, the “diet” focuses on incorporating healthy fats, whole grains, fruits, beans, vegetables, nuts, low-fat dairy, fish, lean meats, and olive oil.

And that is a delicious combination of foods!

Foods you eat on the Mediterranean diet are full of ingredients that are common and popular in Greece, Italy, Spain, Israel, and parts of the Middle East.

The food is simple, fresh, and flavorful. And healthy? Healthy has never tasted better!

Stocking a Mediterranean Diet Friendly Pantry

If you like the way you feel eating a Mediterranean diet and want to stock your pantry with healthy foods favored in this way of eating, here are some suggestions to add to your grocery list:
