The Mediterranean Diet
The Mediterranean diet is based on the diets of people from Southern Italy. The diet focuses on whole grains, good fats (fish, olive oil, etc.), legumes, vegetables, fruits, and low consumption of any non-fish meat. This diet has become popular because individuals show:
- Lower rates of heart disease and chronic disease.
- Improved weight loss, better control of blood sugar & reduced risk of depression.
- Reduced levels of inflammation, a risk factor for heart attack, stroke and Alzheimer’s disease.
However, following the diet is only one contributor to Mediterranean long living. The key to a longer, healthier life from the Mediterranean diet comes from the mineral rich volcanic soils in which the food is grown. These unique volcanic ecosystems have a profound beneficial impact on the produce grown and the people that call it home.
Our goal is to bring you exquisite elements of this amazing diet into your home, so you can not only enjoy the immaculate taste of Italian cuisine but also feel healthier, happier and fulfilled with the benefits of a Mediterranean diet in your lifestyle.
