The Mediterranean diet has become increasingly well known over the last few years. Historically, the traditional Mediterranean diet was considered not just an eating plan but a way of life as well. Named for the Mediterranean Ocean that many regions surround, Mediterranean cuisine can vary quite significantly through varying locations. For example, the folk in Tunisia, Greece, Crete, Spain, and Italy, would all eat quite different local Mediterranean foods on a daily basis. However, the Mediterranean diet philosophy remains the same.
Mediterranean Diet Philosophy.
The Mediterranean diet is quite different from a Western style diet. Firstly, fat consumption is not only allowed, it is encouraged. However, we are not talking deep fried chicken or doughnut style fats, but the monounsaturated and omega fats found in olives, olive oil, avocados, nuts, and oily fish. Contrary to popular opinion, these types of fats are not bad for you, and have been medically linked to better cardiac health and lower blood cholesterol levels.
Butters and margarines, are not consumed. Other animal and dairy fats are eaten infrequently. Full cream milk, creams, and ice creams should be avoided. Olive oil is used instead of butter on breads, and both olive and canola oils are used for cooking. These are the fats that are known as saturated or trans fats, and are linked to heart disease, stroke, and obesity.
Herbs and spices are used as tasty alternatives to salt.
Nuts, especially almonds, pecans, hazelnuts, and walnuts, are eaten as snacks.
The Mediterranean diet is not just an eating plan but a way of life. Meals are lingered over and enjoyed. Often in the Mediterranean culture, eating is a social event, and meals are shared with loved ones and friends. Meals in the Mediterranean are not eaten on the run, or solo in the car, nor in front of the TV.

5.0 out of 5 stars Healthy dining and culinary delights.,I have always felt that the word "diet" hurts the appeal of this book. It is not a "go on this and lose weight" diet, but rather "the way the Mediterrean peoples of the world eat" diet. Most healthcare professionals feel that the Mediterrean diet is the healthiest diet there is; however, this book is on a list of my top five cookbooks in a collection of approximately 500 based on how delicious the food is! Try the Greek Salad and the Salad Nicoise, two dishes that are horribly served in diners all over the Northeast, to see how they really should taste. The food is truly wonderful AND healthy. The recipes are clearly written and easy to prepare. I give this book as a present all the time to both my health-conscious friends and my cooking friends. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to cook, to anyone who loves to eat, and to anyone who wants to clean up his nutritional act in 1997. I give my thanks to Nancy Harmon Jenkins for a monumental work and wish everyone who tries it good eating and good luck
