Keto Mediterranean lifestyle could be the best answer to all the contemporary diseases of humanity. Not only that people in this area live longer and happier, they also prefer organic, homemade and rustic cooking. In fact, the tradition of slow cooking did not change much, not even in the 21st century. If you visit any village in the eastern Mediterranean zone, you will find healthy 90+ years old people working in fields, or taking care of their goats, sheep, chicken, donkeys. Everything is original and authentic. I was lucky to visit a village in the Peloponnesus this summer. People there looked 20-30 years younger than they actually were! Amazing and wonderful experience.
Want to live inflammation free? – Keto Mediterranean is your way to go!
If you are reading my blog regularly, you must have noticed that I keep repeating one thing – goat milk products protect us against inflammation and give many health benefits! But, what can I do, I will never get tired of promoting the life power that even Zeus got from Amalthea. Furthermore, everything you do in your life reflects on your health and strength. Recently, the internet has been bombed with articles and videos about low-carb diet and their potential danger. To this, I have to say: How in the world did our ancients live healthy and long lives with eating predominantly good fats, cheese, olives, fish, and yes – meat! How come people in our islands still eat tons of goat and sheep butter, cheese, full-fat yoghurt and seafood! Their diet is not predominantly plant-based even if they do eat bread.
Dr Ken Berry, I agree with you 100%
To save you reading time, I will just share this awesome video by Dr Ken Berry! As you might already know, he is one of the good doctors promoting the Ketogenic diet and helping hundreds of people regain their health and live better lives.
Keto Mediterranean rustic omelette
A great nutrition expert Michael Joseph wrote an outstanding article on 12 types of cured meat. After reading it, I just got an idea! Yes, cured and dried meat can be healthy and it can still be found on the small farms without added industrial conservatives. How will you know? Simply, look at the colour! If the dried or smoked meat product is brown, rather than red, you got yourself a healthy thing! Most certainly, nitrates and nitrites free! Furthermore, sugar and dextrose-free. What’s most interesting, it will even taste better.
Cured meats have been one of our most traditional foods going back to ancient times.
Homemade fresh Goat cheese
I understand that not everybody lives in the Mediterranean area, but I also know that almost every country in the world has goat farms. If you are not experienced in making fresh cheese at home, all these wonderful farmers will sell you their top-quality fresh cheese. And then, you need to find some chicken farm for the free-range eggs! With all these treasures, you can start making the Spartan breakfast that will give your body superpowers of Greek Gods and healthy mind and soul of our Goddess!!
