The Mediterranean diet has been recognized as one of the healthiest ways to eat.1 Research indicates that this healthy eating pattern is associated with a number of nutritional benefits, and reduced risk of chronic diseases like heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes.2 While olive oil, fish, and vegetables are some of the foods that commonly come to mind when thinking of recipes for a Mediterranean diet, eggs have always played a supporting role in Mediterranean dishes as well.
Eggs appear as ingredients in both simple and complex dishes, providing richness of flavor and contributing important nutrients. They are best enjoyed in tandem with fresh vegetables and fruits, whole grains, nuts, oils, seafood and meat, and fragrant spices which come together to make Mediterranean recipes everyone would enjoy.
