Mediterranean lifestyle: more than an eating style

We like to think that our products, like our Mini Grissini with Rosemary, will let you appreciate the Mediterranean diet. As you’ll read in this abstract, it is a lifestyle!

The benefits of a traditional Mediterranean lifestyle don’t stop with food. There are other reasons why this region traditionally scores high on measures of health. “The Mediterranean culture embraces the importance of eating and cooking with family and friends,” says Katherine McManus, director of the Department of Nutrition at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Cooking and eating with your family or friends can also be an important component of a healthy lifestyle.

Last, but not least, physical activity is key to the Mediterranean lifestyle. Dancing, biking, or a simple walk are all ways to be active each day.
