Souvlaki, Hummus, Anyone? These 5 Restaurants Deliver Mediterranean Meals Right To Your Doorstep
Did you know that Mediterranean cuisine is a healthier choice?
Aside from burgers and French fries, other American comfort food like chicken wings, and pizza, and pasta comprise our usual food cravings. There are also days when we’re in the mood for some Chinese, or Vietnamese. If you’re looking to change up your food delivery selection this weekend with something that is both tasty and healthy, there’s always Mediterranean cuisine.
Mediterranean food not only satisfies our taste buds, it offers health benefits too. In fact, the U.S. News & World Report ranked the Mediterranean diet as number one on its 2019 Best Diets Overall list.
Health benefits of Mediterranean food
- It may help prevent heart disease and stroke.
Vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and fruits are staples in Mediterranean recipes. Rich in healthy fats, this diet may help you prevent heart disease and stroke in the long run. Hopefully, it will also limit your intake of processed food and red meat. And don’t worry about giving up your alcohol, a Mediterranean diet always makes use of wine.
- It may help prevent Type 2 Diabetes.
According to a 2014 study, following a Mediterranean diet lowers your risk for type 2 diabetes, and “improves markers of diabetes in people who already have the condition.”
- It is a good source of antioxidants.
A research published in 2013 linked the relationship between the antioxidants and fiber content in Mediterranean diet with good mental and physical health.
- It may help prevent cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease.
The Mayo Clinic says that a diet high in fruits, vegetables, and lean protein slows down changes in the brain that may indicate Alzheimer’s disease.
- It may help with weight loss and maintenance.
Because it focuses on whole, fresh foods instead of processed meals, it may help you lose weight in a healthy and sustainable way.
