What Kind of Flour for the Mediterranean Diet

Best Bread for Mediterranean Diet

The Mediterranean Diet takes its name and food choice from the countries of Greece and Italy. The diet has a focus on eating foods that come from plants, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains and nuts. It deters its practitioners from butter and recommends healthier fats such as olive oil. Sweets and meats should be eaten at a minimum for full effectiveness of this diet.

Lee Household Flour Mill is the perfect addition for anyone on this diet. With the focus on whole grains and food derived from plants, you can grind almost any type of flour that is compatible with the mill. From amaranth to wheat flour, if it came from the ground it will work with this diet. Bread is common for native practitioners of this diet; however they rarely put butter on it, preferring it with olive oil or plain.
