The New Mediterranean Diet Cookbook is your guidebook to the ultimate superdiet, an evidence-based keto diet that emphasizes a diversity of fish, healthy fats, and a rainbow of colorful vegetables—with 100 delicious recipes for everything from snacks to dinner. The Mediterranean diet has long been touted as one of the world's healthiest diets, renowned for its protective effects against heart disease, cancer, and other chronic illnesses. However, its heavy inclusion of grains and carbohydrates can contribute to obesity and is a drawback for many. Also shown to have many health benefits, the ketogenic diet stimulates the fat-burning and longevity-promoting state of ketosis by limiting carbs and emphasizing high-fat foods. While the keto diet is about the proportion of macronutrients (fats, protein, carbohydrates) in the food you eat, the Mediterranean diet is about specific food types: seafood, olive oil, colorful vegetables, and other anti-inflammatory foods. This book is about living and eating at the intersection of these complementary diets so you can reap the benefits of both. While both diets advocate significant amounts of healthy fats and protein, The new Mediterranean approach to keto significantly shifts the fat profile of the diet to emphasize the monounsaturated and omega-3 fats that health experts agree promote living a long disease-free life. It also includes colorful vegetables, providing a diversity of nutrients and flavor. The result is an enhanced Mediterranean diet that stokes metabolism, supports the gut and microbiome, and is anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, and nutrient-dense. Improve your overall health while enjoying delectable dishes including: Superfood Shakshuka Blender Cinnamon Pancakes with Cacao Cream Topping Green Goddess Salad Pancetta Wrapped Sea Bass Sheet Pan Crispy Salmon Piccata Fierce Meatball Zoodle Bolognese Nordic Stone Age Bread Chocolate Hazelnut “Powerhouse” Truffles With The New Mediterranean Diet Cookbook, you'll learn how to balance your macronutrients, what foods are considered the new Mediterranean superfoods, and how to make tasty dishes to keep you satisfied all day.

This ebook gives the definition, benefits, and recipes in the Mediterranean diet. Pros of eating a Mediterranean diet. • It lets you eat only what you love. The Mediterranean diet comprises a variety of whole, fresh foods, making it easy for you to build some good food options from the diet. The foods that make up this diet just need minor tweaks. For instance, instead of a sausage and pepperoni pizza, you can choose one diet fully piled with veggies. You are free to include a lot of food types in a meal. When you fill-up your meal with fresh foods like fruit and vegetables, they will help you build volume into your meals so that you can consume fewer calories. • The diet is low in saturated fat. The Mediterranean diet saves you from constant hunger since it has a variety of healthy fats in it. The diet limits large amounts of red or processed meats, which helps you consume more monounsaturated fatty acids like nuts, avocado, and olive oil. These fatty acids reduce cholesterol intake, which is high in saturated fats. • The Mediterranean diet lowers the risk of getting cancer. A growing number of studies indicate that people following a Mediterranean diet have a lower chance of getting colon cancer, prostate cancer, and some neck and head cancers. These studies were published in September 2016 in the British Journal of Cancer, in the European Journal of Cancer Prevention in September 2017, and in the Journal of Urology in February 2018 One skillet Mediterranean chicken recipe This recipe is ideal for dinner.
