The Mediterranean Diet is one type of healthy diet, that is especially linked to countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea. The diet is very similar to the basic principles that we discussed before. The Mediterranean diet contains a lot of plant-based foods (fruits, vegetables, nuts and cereals) and extra virgin olive oil. It also contains moderate amounts of fish and poultry, and low amounts of dairy products (mainly cheese and yoghurt) and red meat. Another important aspect of this diet is eating together with friends or family. We must not forget that a healthy diet also implies enjoying food, savouring a pizza or a delicious dessert every once in a while with family and friends.
