The Mediterranean diet is one that has caught on with many people and has grown in popularity in the last few years. Fans of this way of eating extoll the many virtues of the diet followed by people in Mediterranean countries, primarily the Greeks. For generations, people in that part of the world have lived happy and healthy lives on a diet that is rich is fresh fruits and vegetables, meats and cheeses from the region, and healthy oils that are high in antioxidants. Proponents of the Mediterranean Diet believe that eating this way is the key to a long life full of vitality.
The foods that make up much of the Mediterranean Diet are refreshing and delicious, and are just the perfect light treat when it comes to snack time. Veggies like ripe, juicy tomatoes and big, plump Greek olives are enough to keep you full and give you the energy you need to get through an afternoon of work. And if you add the flavor that can be found in other Mediterranean foods, you’ll end up with a taste sensation that will more than satisfy your taste buds. Fix yourself some beefy slices of fresh tomato, some large brown Greek olives, some crumbled feta cheese and a sprinkling of extra-virgin olive oil. This snack is portable and delicious, it’s fast and easy to fix at home or to pack up in some Tupperware to take along to work for a midday snack.
