Mediterranean diet

Mediterranean diet.. What is it? In the reality the term ‘Mediterranean diet’ does not indicate a diet but an alimentary style, based on simple and balanced foods.Italy is one of the promoters countries together the others, like Greece, that bordering on the Mediterranean. Before to explain this diet is useful to know that

the fundamental aspect of mediterranean diet is the proportion, moderation of the portions! Well, keep in mind.

I want to give you a simple guide line about this famous diet, remembering that it is become UNESCO heritage since 2010.. I think that it is very important for the consequences that we can have for our health..

OK..Let’s start 😃

The mediterranean diet provides the consumption of vegetal protein in large amounts, it means that is favourite the use of legumes, dried fruits, cereals, seasonable fruits and vegetables, but also olive oil and wine, instead of animal fats. The consumption of sausages, spirits, white sugar, butter, fatty cheeses, mayonnaise, white salt, margarine, beef and pork is reduced!.

In substance, it is a diet based on bread, pasta (preferably wholegrain), vegetables, fish, olive oil and fruit!…It provides protein, fat and high nutritional value sugars, low in cholesterol, saturated fats and simple sugars; It is rich in vitamins, minerals and non-digestible fibers.

Furthermore the mediterranean diet is a natural defense against diseases such as atherosclerosis, hypertension, myocardial infarction and stroke… and if these few words about this diet don’t convince you to try it, i report to you another reason ‘The Mediterranean diet involves a set of skills, knowledge, rituals, symbols and traditions concerning the crops, agricultural crops, fisheries, animal husbandry, storage, processing, cooking, and especially sharing and consumption of food from motivational words of UNESCO ..The fundamental behavior is the “eating together”, said the UNESCO, which emphasizes the importance of family, group and community.

Then why not try?

      thank you so much, yes i wanted to underline the different meaning, because nowadays is given to this term a specific weight; while the mediterranean diet is more a ‘διαιτα’ as the classic greek indicated, i.e. a simple rule.
