Shownotes

Today we discuss the Mediterranean Diet, renowned for its health benefits and inspired by traditional eating habits around the Mediterranean Sea. It emphasizes plant-based foods, whole grains, healthy fats like extra virgin olive oil (evoo), and lean proteins such as fish. Ancel Keys coined the term in the 1960s after observing lower heart disease rates in Mediterranean populations. The diet is more than just food—it's a lifestyle incorporating aspects like conviviality, tradition, seasonality, physical activity, togetherness in cooking, education about food culture, and zero waste. The diet's principles promote heart health, weight management, and overall well-being, offering a variety of flavors and choices adaptable across cultures.
