Many of you must have heard the Mediterranean diet is super healthy; you can live longer and not gain as much weight as other countries do. Why is that? Besides olive oil, Mediterranean cuisine doesn’t involve many superfoods, and large portions are plentiful. The key here is that a combination of vegetables, fruits, beans, whole grain bread, some white meat, dairy products, and healthy fats (like avocado of course) play a big role in dishes.
Another key is that the cultural emphasis on homemade, from-scratch meals cuts out many processed foods. Though we all enjoy a big slice of pizza and TV during our meals, this isn’t a common evening in the Mediterranean countries! So start your healthy (and super yummy) new eating routine today with this amazing Greek AvoToast.
