Mediterranean Diet Meal Plan Ideas

So what’s the basic principle that you need to follow for the Mediterranean diet? Basically, the foods that you need to consume are more on veggies and fruits; legumes, nuts and whole grain cereals. Again, olive oil is a staple ingredient which can be used as a salad dressing, for frying or even as a bread condiment.
Meat can be consumed once a month, but the Mediterranean diet revolves around using mostly fish as your main source of protein. The dairy items include cheeses and yogurts. And who doesn’t enjoy a moderate drinking of wine paired with an excellent cheese slice? This is something that the Mediterranean diet lets you enjoy!
Start with a Great Breakfast
Start your day with a dose of zinc, calcium and vitamins A and C. But this does not have to be a boring breakfast. You will surely love yogurt with the nuts and honey. Simply prepare a ripe apricot pitted and halved. Of course, don’t forget 4 tablespoons of Greek or plain yogurt and the honey.
Prepare a tablespoon of roughly chopped pistachios. The preparation is quite simple so it’s so easy and convenient to prepare. Simply get the first half of the apricot and fill it with 2 tablespoons of yogurt and sprinkle it with honey and then with pistachios.
If you want your ordinary yogurt to get a thick texture, you can sift it through a sieve with a coffee filter on. Then put the container with the yogurt in the freezer for about 6 hours before using it.
