Yesterday as I began writing this review I came across an article headline titled, "Mediterranean diet better than statins for tackling heart disease." I thought it was interesting and timely as we've known the Mediterranean diet (MD) to be heart-healthy for some time now, however in this study it was demonstrated to be very effective in preventing cardiovascular death in people with existing heart disease. The more likely the people adhered to a Mediterranean diet, the less likely they were to die. I think a major takeaway is not that medications aren't important, because they most certainly are, but it also underlines just how important your diet can be!The book is organized into two parts. The first part (chapters 1 & 2) provides general background information on what the MD is and why it is good for you. It provides a basic, easy to understand, instruction manual for how to be successful in incorporating the MD into your everyday life. It gives you a concise, but thorough, how-to approach to plan your week, and most importantly, the ingredients that your pantry should have on hand at all times. That can't be understated because the whole idea of this book is to make the MD a lifestyle, not just a recipe book to make a Mediterranean dish from time to time. I really like her approach to outlining this as it is not information overload and doesn't take long to read.The second part of the book is all recipes. They range from breakfast to lunch to dinner, and even includes desserts.I had a chance to make quite a few of the recipes, and each one I found to be easy to understand, easy to prepare, and best of all...delicious!
