In my last article I told you about a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine describing the benefits of the Mediterranean diet. The study, "Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease with a Mediterranean Diet"showed that adhering to the Mediterranean diet ? fresh fruits and vegetables, fish and sea food, legumes, white meat ? supplemented with extra-virgin olive oil ? resulted in 30 percent decrease in the risk of developing stroke, myocardial infarction (heart attack) or death from cardiovascular disease. It was then, in a moment of weakness that I promised to reveal a recipe of a Mediterranean dish in which olive oil is a star!
