Penelope Cruz, of Spanish origins, is the embodiment of the mediterranean woman; dark hair, dark eyes, and a sensuous body. Asked about how she keeps her body in shape, even after her pregnancy, her answer was: by following the mediterranean diet of course!

Loaded with nuts, fish, fruits, olive oil and vegetables, the mediterranean diet improves both mental and physical health.

*Fruits and veggies pack lots of nutrients and should be included in every meal.

*Whole grains are rich in fiber, protein, vitamin and healthy fats. They help lower your blood pressure.

*Nuts, legumes and seeds keep your heart healthy and fill you up.

*Fish and seafood have less calories than red meat, and they’re a source of omega 3.

*Eggs and lean meat are sources of animal protein.

*Olive oil contains disease-fighting antioxidants and heart-healthy monounsaturated fats. Extra virgin oil is best.

*Wine in moderation.

This diet is not as strict as others; sure you have to exercise to stay healthy, but the mediterranean diet also allows you to enjoy sweets and desserts in small amounts.

Let’s not forget that the mediterranean diet is more of a lifestyle, it also means taking the time to savor your meal.
