Mediterranean cuisine has gained worldwide popularity in recent years for its blend of flavor and nutritional value. The Mediterranean diet does not ban nor reject any one food group such as meat, dairy, or grains. Rather, it incorporates the best of each category in moderation. Mediterranean cooking uses olive oil in place of unhealthy fats. With just the right blend of spices, this healthy alternative is not at the cost of flavor. This could be a reason why people who choose a Mediterranean diet are less likely to develop high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes.
When you think of Mediterranean food, favorites like hummus and tabbouleh probably come to mind. Yet there is still a multitude of less well known dishes from the Mediterranean that are ideal for a balanced diet.
