Beginners' Mediterranean Diet Meal Plan

Nuts and Dried Fruits

Nutrition-rich nuts are filled with fiber, antioxidants, protein, unsaturated fat and omega-3 fatty acids. 

Fruits and Vegetables

A little banana is popular snack. But I love a little citrus fruit or a handful of berries for a bright, mood-boosting option.

Beans and Chickpeas

Legumes and pulses are rich in plant-based protein and fiber and low in fat, so they can help you feel fuller longer.

Some manufacturers add a thickening agent to yogurt, which does not provide the same benefits.

Greek Yogurt

This is a bit of an outside-the-box Eastern Mediterranean snack.

Early Harvest EVOO and Za’atar Snack

A small bowl of early harvest extra virgin olive oil and another bowl of za'atar spice.
