I’m often asked if you can eat the Mediterranean Diet in winter. The answer is a resounding yes! If my wife and I can eat Mediterranean here in New England, I am pretty sure anyone can do it. We enjoy both winter vegetables that we make winter recipes with, but also summer vegetables that we have frozen or preserved. If you want to know more about how we freeze our vegetables to keep them good all winter check out this article! There is a certain indescribable joy I feel when we are hunkered in because of a snow storm and we are eating pesto pasta from pesto I froze in the summer.
Winter recipes are plentiful when following the Mediterranean Diet. The traditional Mediterranean Diet is that of humble people. Over thousands of years, simple and delicious recipes for soups, stews and other yummy dishes that will warm your bones have been perfected.
Don’t forget that much of the Mediterranean has winter. They also have many of the same winter vegetables that we have. Recipes with carrots, potatoes, squash, cabbage and kale are plentiful in the Mediterranean. Here are 7 of our favorite winter recipes. Enjoy!
