The Mediterranean Diet Manifesto

As you know I am passionate about the Mediterranean diet, the diet I was raised on, but more importantly I am passionate about presenting the real Mediterranean diet as it once was and not a watered-down version of it. So I present to you the Mediterranean Diet Manifesto.

Here is what we all need to know and remember to do:

    I’m the dean of Perrotis College of the American Farm School of Thessaloniki.
    I would like to have your permission (and help) to reproduce your manifesto as a poster for a public event we are organising end of May titled “Food, Taste & Society.

    Thank you in advance

    I do all of this except for ‘have your largest meal at lunch’ – eating even a sandwich at lunch makes me very tired and I need to be alert to teach. I prefer to eat my largest meal about 8.00 in the evening.

      Try having a mostly vegetable based lunch with a bit of protein rather than than a starchy lunch (like sandwich or pasta), it helps combat that afternoon sleepiness.

    You are just what I have been looking for! For years I have been trying to find the best Mediterranean recipe book to follow a healthy mediterranean food plan. (Only thing is I have a severe allergy to beans and pulses).
    Thank you so much for sharing this!
