Low in saturated fat and high in dietary fiber, Mediterranean cuisine might be one of the healthiest diets around today. A traditional Mediterranean diet consists of lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds, a limited amount of red meat, a daily glass of wine, plenty of olive oil, and many more delicious food options. There’s a reason why those who live in the Mediterranean region are so full of life, happy, and healthy – it’s in the food!

Aids in Preventing Diabetes
Mediterranean cuisine is low in sugar, with the only sugar present in the diet coming from fresh fruits, wine, and select dessert foods. A Mediterranean diet consists of fatty acids, quality protein, and low sugar carbs, which in turn regulates blood sugar levels.
Wards Off Heart Disease
Rich in monounsaturated fats and omega-3s, a Mediterranean diet significantly reduces the chance of developing heart disease. Olive oil, a huge proponent within this diet containing healthy fatty acids, has also been proven to lower hypertension and keeping the arteries open and free of clogs.
