...balanced Mediterranean diet

Nutritional Recommendations

Important foods for a balanced diet-that actively participate in the Mediterranean-style Diet and constitute the foundation of the nutritional pyramid.


1. Consume plant-based proteins to drastically reduce the intake of saturated fats and cholesterol, that are always present in animal-based foods.

2. To maintain fat intake at low levels, use limited amounts of olive oil, margarine, sauces, mayonnaise and butter, when cooking vegetables and grains.

3. Use nuts and seeds that are rich in oil to enrich your breakfast or as a tasty addition to soups, pasta, salads, whole-wheat grains, pulses and vegetables.
