Although avocados have not historically been incorporated into the Mediterranean diet, they complement its flavorful and nutritious structure.
Analogous to olive oil, this nutrient-dense fruit is loaded with monounsaturated fatty acids that promote cardiac health and aid in the reduction of bad cholesterol.
Buckwheat, contrary to its deceptive terminology, is a gluten-free pseudo-grain and not related to wheat.
Groats made from the hulled grains of the buckwheat plant are prepared in a manner akin to that of rice and possess a hearty, nutty taste.
A Mediterranean Diet does not prohibit the consumption of any foods as "bad"; rather, it promotes and endorses all of them.
However, if we were to select a few of our preferred options, we would classify them as berries.
Herbs such as basil, parsley, rosemary, and thyme are well-liked in this area for their numerous health advantages, including anti-inflammatory and digestive enhancement.
