What Do People In The Mediterranean Eat For Lunch?
Traditionally, in the Mediterranean, lunch was the biggest meal of the day and was eaten in the early afternoon (usually before nap time). Nowadays, those who work during the day, eat a smaller lunch and then have their big meal at night. What is eaten for lunch varies greatly from country to country and person to person. In Greece, they might have a Greek salad with bread, in Italy they might have leftover pasta, in Lebanon they might have hummus with vegetables in a pita. A Mediterranean lunch really can be made up of almost anything a Mediterranean breakfast or dinner is made up of. Leftovers are eaten often, sometimes just made into something a bit different.
