The Mediterranean diet, savored in countries like Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey, and Israel, is rich in seafood, olive oil, nuts, whole grains, pulses, and fruits and vegetables, and it’s a style of eating that promotes everything from heart health to diabetes prevention. It’s also easy to follow and versatile as you’ll see in this roundup of 25 Mediterranean recipes from some of my favorite healthy living bloggers on the web.
