Hellenic Mediterranean Diet

It may be the most renowned and balanced diet. Although it has its roots in the traditional dietary patterns of the Mediterranean countries, it has long surpassed the geographical boundaries of this region. In November 2010, it has won a place in UNESCO’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity; this makes the Mediterranean products even more popular to all over the world.

What characterizes the Mediterranean Diet is the fact that it is much more than a simple diet; it is a way of life. It is the simplicity of recipes. It is the purity and variety of raw materials. It is the consumption of seasonal fruits and vegetables. It is the use of herbs such as oregano, thyme and fennel, which give a special flavor to food. It is the daily physical activity that helps people be healthy and fit. It is the quality not only to our food but also to our life.
