Buon Anno Nuovo from everyone at Filippo Berio!
The New Year is now upon us and Christmas seems like a distant memory. Having overindulged and overspent in December, January may seem particularly gloomy as a result.
Rather than trying extreme diets, why not adapt your diet to the Mediterranean way of eating by following these 4 simple principles:
- Use olive oil every day instead of butter and margarine
- Eat mostly plant-based foods, including vegetables, fruits, pulses, whole grains and nuts
- Use herbs and spices to flavour foods
- Limit red meat, fish & poultry to at least two times per week.
Studies have shown that those who follow Mediterranean diet not only lead long, healthy lives but risk of developing illnesses such as heart disease and cancer is said to reduce by up to 33%.
