Diets are a dime a dozen, but it turns out that there’s one we *actually* love. The Mediterranean diet is more of a guideline than a capital D diet.

It doesn’t exclude any food groups, meaning you can have just about anything in moderation. But the meal plan does focus on plant-based protein more than meat, fish and dairy, plus grains, veggies, fruits and healthy fats. To give you a taste, here are seven dinners to cook this week that are inspired by the Mediterranean lifestyle.
