Reap the Benefits of the Mediterranean Diet—And the View
Peloponnesians have appreciated the health benefits of their Mediterranean diet (high in veggies, fruits, whole grains, olive oil, nuts, and fish) for centuries. These days, the fish soup at Thalassinos (shown) in the seaside town of Marathopoli, as well as the fresh fish (especially the red mullet) and wild greens at Diamantis, in the port town of Gerakas, prove that healthy can also be delicious.
