The Mediterranean diet follows the eating habits of Mediterranean countries and is associated with many health benefits. It includes starchy foods such as bread and pasta, olive oil, oily fish and plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.
A Mediterranean diet is right for you because you love the social aspects of eating food as much as the food itself. You love fresh fruits and vegetables and have no difficulty getting your 5-a-day every day, but you prefer to aim for balance in your diet over a week rather than in every meal. However, it’s good conversation around the dinner table that makes a meal for you and the health benefits of a Mediterranean-style diet are simply the icing on the cake.
