What is the Mediterranean diet? Do you know? A reader sent me this picture, from a place in Spain. The picture provides good evidence on how the fuzzy concept of the “Mediterranean diet” can be applied to almost anything.
If the “Mediterranean diet” is about vegetables, fish, olive oil and various other real foods, free of processed junk, then it’s certainly a very healthy diet. But if you, unbelievably enough, mean bread with low-fat margarine on it (as some do), then it’s just as unhealthful as the breakfast in the picture.
What is the Mediterranean diet to you?
