Mediterranean Diet - Recipes&Cooking tips

I prodotti della dieta mediterraneaThe United Nations Education, Scientific & Cultural Organization (UNESCO) for short normally bestows accreditation on cities, works of art or educational projects but for the first ever time they have actually decided to award a diet and a way of eating that they feel should be appreciated and valued as an important part of evolutionary human learning.
The Mediterranean diet was awarded a Immaterial Human Heritage title and much was made of the point that it goes back for hundreds of years and every single country touching the Mediterranean can claim a healthy Mediterranean diet.
The Mediterranean diet constitutes a set of skills, knowledge, practices and traditions ranging from the landscape to the table, including the crops, harvesting, fishing, conservation, processing, preparation and, particularly, consumption of food. The Mediterranean diet is characterized by a nutritional model that has remained constant over time and space, consisting mainly of olive oil, cereals, fresh or dried fruit and vegetables, a moderate amount of fish, dairy and meat, and many condiments and spices, all accompanied by wine or infusions, always respecting beliefs of each community. However, the Mediterranean diet (from the Greek diaita, or way of life) encompasses more than just food.
