7 Benefits of the Mediterranean Diet + Your Shopping List

Posted by Terra's Kitchen on Mon, Mar 26, '18


All of the meals at Terra's Kitchen are created based on the principles of the Mediterranean diet. While it's typically referred to as the Mediterranean diet, it's really a lifestyle. Inspired by the countries that border the Mediterranean Sea, the lifestyle focuses on colorful fruits and vegetables, nuts, heart-healthy fats (like olive oil and avocados) and minimizes red meat, sugar, and saturated fat.


Fortunately, there is no deprivation in eating like you live in the Mediterranean! Consume fresh fish, olive oil, almonds, avocados, fruits and vegetables, tea, and yes -- red wine. (In moderation, red wine has shown to reduce inflammation and have antioxidant properties. Cheers!) Flavor will never be lacking because herbs and spices are abundant. Common herbs and spices like ginger, rosemary, turmeric, nutmeg, oregano and cayenne all have anti-inflammatory properties. Just limit processed foods, saturated and trans fats, and refined sugars. (Remember: Dark chocolate has antioxidants!)
