The Mediterranean Diet consists of eating the traditional foods (and drinks) of the countries neighboring the Mediterranean Sea. It is not a traditional diet in the sense of “go on a diet”, even though it is a great way to lose weight and improve health.

    Another healthy eating recipe and information book. This one advocates the diet of the Mediterranean area, which includes Italy. That means lots of vegetables (plant foods), fruit, fish and poultry and limit the red meat, dairy and potatoes, etc. The book does include a couple of recipes and sample diet plans but mostly it is just information on what the diet is.

Like how the book starts out with categories of food and explains what is included and what you should be eating. This is not only a book about food, there are many other aspects of the diet. Water and wine and exercise. Many studies are quoted and referenced to prove the lifestyle of the Mediterranean is the best way to go to avoid other health ailments. Common list of herbs, spices and other Mediterranean terms are explained. At a quick glance you can find a breakfast that is low in calories but high in a certain vitamin. Some recipes come with a picture, all contain ingredient list and nutritional information. Especially liked what else we can try with our fish meals.

    Whelp... Love my pasta, veg, and olive oil, but was surprised how little else the Mediterranean diet applies to me once you rule out meat, fish, and cheese. Kind of bummed I suffered through the first third of the book before I realized that. Didn't need a lecture or reams of footnotes, just a cookbook. Thankfully, a freebie.

Stacy Michaels discusses the health benefits of the program, and includes the research that supports these findings. She also offers an eclectic mix of recipes which will take you on a delicious culinary tour of Europe!
