The Mediterranean Diet has been in the news a lot in the past few years. It has been voted the #1 diet by U.S. News & World Report. Not only was it voted the top overall diet, it was also rated the best healthy eating diet, the easiest diet to follow, the best diet for diabetes, the best heart-healthy diet, and the best plant-based diet. I would also add that, in my humble opinion, it is the best tasting diet out there. But what is the Mediterranean Diet?
