As in all cases of the Oldways-PT heritage diets, the Mediterranean option is based on a plethora of fruits and vegetables. From artichoke to avocado to sweet potato and shallot. Fragrance and flavors are abundant when building a meal out of the available ingredients.

These options are sure to fit any budget while making any meal feel as elegant as dinner out on the town.
