Live Younger with the Mediterranean Diet

Posted: July 12, 2017

It is well known that the Mediterranean Diet – the traditional diet, that is, not the usual tourists’ fare of pizza and pasta – promotes great health and long life. It has anti-cancer, heart-protective effects and it is also full of delicious, satisfying foods. It’s great for the whole family, it’s not too restrictive, and most dishes are simple to cook.

Here’s some more on the wonderful Mediterranean Diet, and some of the healthiest people in the Mediterranean, in a piece I wrote for the Real Olive Company which was printed in Celebrity Angels magazine. Click on the image to read the full article.

Here in Cornwall the blackberries are just starting, and there are apples to scrump from the track down to the beach - good for counteracting all the pasties and ice cream we've been eating 😬 - so it seems a good time to mention that:

- apples may seem everyday, but they contain thousands of phytochemicals which work synergistically, boosting each other's power. The vitamin C content in an apple isn't very high, for instance, but is worth three 500mg vitamin C pills thanks to the other micronutrients that come with it. And a fresh-picked apple is worth two cold-storage supermarket apples, so now is a good time to be eating them.

- the rich colour of blackberries and other berries indicates high concentrations of antioxidant, antiinflammatory, anticancer polyphenols. No chance of getting scurvy with these around 💜

If you are after a wheat and/or dairy free crumble, I love oats and almond flour for the topping, and Alpro soya custard to go with it.
