The New Mediterranean Diet Cookbook is your guidebook to the ultimate superdiet, an optimised keto diet that emphasises a diversity of fish and plant oils and a rainbow of colourful vegetables-with 100 delicious recipes for everything from snacks to dinner.

The Mediterranean diet has long been touted as one of the worlds healthiest diets, renowned for its ameliorative effects on heart disease, cancer, and other chronic illnesses. However, its heavy inclusion of grains and carbohydrates is a drawback for many. Also shown to have many health benefits, the ketogenic diet stimulates the fat-burning state of ketosis by limiting carbs and emphasising high-fat foods, including dairy and meat, some of which are high in saturated fat. While the keto diet is about the proportion of macronutrients (fats,protein, carbohydrates) in the food you eat, the Mediterranean diet is about specific food types: seafood, colourful fruits and vegetables, olive oil, and other anti-inflammatory foods. This book is about living and eating at the intersection of these complementary diets so you can reap the benefits of both while minimising the pitfalls of each.

While both diets advocate significant amounts of healthy fats and protein, the new Mediterranean approach to Keto significantly shifts the fat profile of the diet. Instead of leaning heavily toward meat, dairy, and animal sources like red meat, bacon, and butter to hit the required fat macros, in this new Mediterranean diet, fat is sourced primarily from fish oils and plant sources such as olive, nut, and coconut oils. This yields a better omega-3 and vitamin D profile. The Mediterranean approach is also more inclusive of colourful vegetables, which yields a better micronutrient profile and higher fibre content. The result is an enhanced Mediterranean diet that stokes metabolism, supports the gut and microbiome, and is anti-inflammatory, anti-ageing, and nutrient-dense.

With The New Mediterranean Diet Cookbook, you'll learn how to balance your macronutrients, what foods are considered the new Mediterranean superfoods, and make tasty dishes to keep you satisfied all day.
