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:

    1. Hi Brenda, Spoke to her the other day. Initially only Spanish olive oil was available or when someone from Greece sent olive oil over to the US. AFter a few years Greek delis opened and they were able to get better olive oil.

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. I love this and plan to post it on my refrigerator as a reminder of good habits!

  4. Thank you for the beautiful cook there recipes for cooking in large exceed 370 Recipes

    Thank you in advance
