When we hear the word “diet,” we think calorie counting, restrictions and way too many carrot sticks. But the Mediterranean Diet is the total antithesis—it’s a diet full of ingredients that are popular in Greece, Italy, Spain, Israel and other parts of the Middle East, with a focus on whole grains, veggies, beans, low-fat dairy, nuts, fish, lean red meat and olive oil.
