The benefits of the Mediterranean diet include reduced blood pressure, improved cholesterol levels, and better blood sugar regulation―all cardiac risk factors.

This book, although not fully comprehensive is very useful.
The book focusses on the health benefits of the mediterranean diet and why people from this region live longer. The information looks very useful, presenting the reaearch in easily understandable and combining it with general health tips from eatibg to approaches in life.
I eat and cook mediterranean food for it's simplicity, taste and enjoyment and that is the part that I am most interested in. The author has gathered recipes from the whole range of countries bordering the mediterranean, from Spain to Greece and Turkey which most books cover. She also presents recipes from the Lebanon and from North African countries like Morocco and Tunisia. There is an excellent selection here giving a good overall representation of the area, although a book yhat covers such a vast and diverse region cannot cover each area comprehensively and has to cherry pick the recipes. The author has also covered a wide range of meal types, mains, sides and deserts etc, and also smoothies and my favourite, speciality dips and condiments.
This is a very useful addition to any cooks shelf, particularly if you are new to this type of cooking and are interested in learning more about it's health benefits.
Lots of fab, easy to do recipes and great tips on prepping ahead to save time. Love this book. My new cooking bible.
It is an interesting read, expanding on the many reasons that all of us should be following the Mediterranean diet AND lifestyle, if we want to achieve long-term health and longevity. A variety of recipes (mostly quite simple) that sound tempting are also included.
If you are already a fan of the Mediterranean diet or just want to find out what it's all about in an easy to read format, check out this book!
