15 Tasty Breakfast Recipes That Are on the Mediterranean Diet
We’re obsessed with the Mediterranean diet. It has oodles of health benefits, it involves basically everything we already love to eat (veggies, lean meats, fish, nuts and plenty of olive oil), and it means that we can spend all of our meals pretending that we’re lounging on a beach in Sardinia. Plus, with eggs, whole grains and low-fat dairy all fair game, there are tons of great breakfast options. Here are 15 of our favorites.
Baked Eggs and Zoodles with Avocado
How cute are these? (They’re a great source of lean protein, too.)

Yep, your favorite dinner-saving appliance also does breakfast.
