Frequently Asked Questions
Learn More About the Mediterranean Meal Plan
Pillars of the Mediterranean Meal Plan
The Mediterranean meal plan is rooted in an abundance of fresh plant-based foods including fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, beans, and legumes, with olive oil being the primary source of monounsaturated fat. Fish and seafood follow as a primary source of protein with moderate amounts of poultry, dairy, and eggs to follow. Red meat and sugary treats should be consumed relatively rarely and in moderate portions.
Origins of the Mediterranean Diet
The Mediterranean Diet was identified in the 1960s as research continued to show populations from Mediterranean regions, particularly Southern Italy, the isle of Crete, and Greece, were considerably healthier, with less incidence of disease and longer lifespans than seen in other regions. Studies indicated that the way these populations ate seemed to be the common denominator and through research, the Mediterranean diet was formally born.

Clinical Support for the Mediterranean Diet
Acclaimed by a range of clinical publications, the Mediterranean diet was recently named the #1 Best Diet Overall and #1 Diet for Healthy Eating by the U.S. News and World Report.
Olive Oil, a Good Fat
Olive oil is an important staple in the Mediterranean diet meal plan. Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is a good source of monounsaturated fat, which is shown to improve cholesterol levels. We recommend keeping a good-quality olive oil on hand for cooking your Sun Basket Mediterranean Meal Plan dinners.
Pairing with an Active Lifestyle
As with any diet, physical activity is essential in establishing a healthy lifestyle. Even light exercise, such as walking or yoga, is enough to get your heart rate up and benefit your overall well-being. We recommend finding a routine you're likely to stick to, like a nightly stroll with your family after dinner or a spin class with your best friend.
