A Food-Lover’s Trip to Greece
By HÉLÈNE LAURENDEAU / 08 March 2016
In Greece, healthy eating and skilful cooking are a way of life, to the point where its citizens enjoy a longer life and a lower risk of chronic illnesses like obesity, cancer and heart disease. The Greek diet consists of whole grain bread, fresh or dried fruit and vegetables, olives, fresh yogurt, fromage frais and olive oil, as well as water and wine with meals (but not too much). A few times a week they’ll add fish, eggs or chicken to a meal. Red meat appears on their plates only a few times a month.
