The Most Recommended Foods For The Mediterranean Diet

By Robert J. Matthews

Avocados

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

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. 

Berries

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.

Garlic

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.
