Secrets of the Cretan Diet

The Cretan diet is rooted deeply in antiquity. It survived difficult conditions during the island’s conquest by the Arabs, the Venetians and the Turks. Crete maintained its dietary traditions even during the Hellenistic period when the Romans changed the eating habits of the entire Mediterranean.

More than 4,000 years ago the ancient Cretans, the Minoans, consumed the products that today are the basis for the Cretan diet. All of the international research supports the view that the Cretan diet is the best and most characteristic case of the Mediterranean diet. Modern nutritional science indicates that the Mediterranean diet provides for a long life and good health.

They accompany their food with wine from the vineyards and use vast quantities of the elixir of a healthy life, olive oil, from Crete’s golden fruit. Today, Crete enjoys one of the world’s most ancient, delicious and healthy cuisines…
