1. Greek Cuisine
The Greek Mediterranean diet is one of most studied cuisines, as it is healthy yet rich in healthy fats that reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and boost the immune system. In fact, doctors have found that the Greek diet which is packed omega 3s is better than any low-fat diet.
Greeks tend to eat in small portions: bite-size pieces of meat accompanied by slowly digestible carbohydrates. The Greek diet includes lots of dark leafy veggies, fresh fruits, lentils, beans, and whole grains. Healthy favorite dishes include moussaka, a layered baked dish consisting of eggplant, tomato, onion and garlic; and fresh fish which is often grilled with ladholemono, an oil and lemon dressing.
