Hippocrates once said, “Let food be the medicine and medicine be the food” and it seems like Greek people have been following his philosophy faithfully even from the ancient years.

The dietary habits of ancient Greeks are characterized by austerity, but also from nutritional value, too. With their nutritional choices, they have laid the foundation for the Mediterranean diet that is not only been rich in nutrients but also beneficial and protective for the human body.

Ancient Greeks, due to the favorable Greek climate, were producing and using in their daily diet, a variety of products and fruits, such as barley, wheat, wine, oil and olives. Honey was also one of the necessary delicacies, either as a sweet or as a fruit for energy coverage, while at the same time it was a substitute for sugar, since sugar was unknown to the ancient Greeks.

Today, the Mediterranean diet is a widespread eating habit, originally inspired from ancient Greece and influenced by southern Italy, France and Spain in the 1940s and 1950s. This particular nutritional composition of the Mediterranean diet is characterized by low saturated fat and cholesterol, and high carbohydrate and fiber content.

The basis of the Mediterranean Diet is olive oil, the liquid gold of Greek soil, high in monounsaturated fatty acids and antioxidants. Its systematic consumption helps in cardiovascular and spiritual clarity and strength, glow of the skin and so much more.
