Do you know about mediterranean diet and the base indegridents...?
Yes, I know, I try to eat based on this healthy pyramid.
Mediterranean diet consists mainly of pasta, lot of vegetables, lots of fruits and olive oil.
Olive oil is low in cholesterol and therefore is very healthy.
Basic ingredients are definitely olive oil, tomatoes, nice bread and different spices (chilly, basil, oregano, garlic). Take bruschetta for example. A simple recipe to prepare. Bread, spread the garlic on the bread, fresh tomatoes and a leave of origano. A drop of oil on top of it. It is so fresh and so tasty.
Olive oil is particularly characteristic of the Mediterranean diet. It contains a very high level of monounsaturated fats, most notably oleic acid, which epidemiological studies suggest may be linked to a reduction in coronary heart disease risk. There is also evidence that the antioxidants in olive oil improve cholesterol regulation and LDL cholesterol reduction, and that it has other anti-inflammatory and anti-hypertensive effects
