It is well documented that people living in the Mediterranean regions have a much lower incidence of heart disease and cancer – and it is not all down to the sun and sea! Mediterranean food is jam packed full of goodness! This is because the Mediterranean diet is high in fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds and grains as well as olive oil – a product rich in monounsaturated fats. Fish is often eaten instead of red meat – meaning that the diet is a rich source of essential fatty acids and antioxidants – a way to help improve cholesterol levels and protect your heart, in addition to being delicious. Below you will find our Mediterranean recipes broken down into categories. Click and enjoy!
