The Mediterranean food, we serve have traditionally been consumed by the Muslims and Orthodox Christian communities of the east and south of Mediterranean Sea or Middle Eastern in the Arab region. The healthy type cooking originated mainly from Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine that includes Jordan & Israel, Turkey and partially Greece, Egypt, Iran and as far as Sudan and Yemen
The Mediterranean-eating recipe we serve is typical focused on simple cooking and includes all the foods you already eat, just in different proportions. The method consists of meats, poultry, fishes, dairy, vegetables, legumes, seeds, herbs, spices with moderate amounts of meat. Meats, poultry, and dairy are consumed in small portions regularly and the portions are smaller than typically consumed in a Western diet.
Olive oil is the most prevalent fat or oil used in the preparation of the foods and the source of dietary fat used for cooking, baking, and for salads dressing. The calcium in feta cheese and yogurt are important for bone and heart health, exceptionally butter and fats other than olive oil are consumed infrequently and fish is not typically battered and fried in Mediterranean cuisines.
According to the Mayo Clinic Blog, “the heart-healthy Mediterranean is a healthy eating plan based on typical foods and recipes of Mediterranean-style cooking.”
