Dear fellow food-lover,

The Mediterranean diet is plant-centered, seasonal, and features local foods and ingredients – in other words, it's a very sustainable way of eating! Here are our suggestions for Mediterranean recipes and cooking habits that are good for you and good for the planet, too.

Happy cooking from the team at Oldways!
