May is International Mediterranean Diet Month. The Mediterranean Diet was “discovered” in the 1950s by Ancel Keys who noticed the low incidence of heart disease amongst Italians, but it was eaten by Italians and other cultures in the Mediterranean since ancient times. It is a healthy diet of whole grains, beans, vegetables, fruit, olive oil, nuts and fish. Oldways, a nonprofit that promotes health and tradition, created International Mediterranean Diet Month to showcase this healthy diet.
