The Greek diet has evolved into one of the healthiest in the world, with its foundations built on simple, nutritious food that offer a host of health benefits. These immunity boosting ingredients help to fight against heart disease, cancers, diabetes, and cognitive decline.
Here are some tips from GRK Fresh Greek’s Business Head Andres Gonzales, on how to get healthy the Greek way, leading up to the holiday season.
The best of GRK Fresh Greek
The Greeks consume their food in the purest form, with a variety of nutrient-rich recipes consisting of raw fruits and vegetables, whole grains, fish, and a small amount of cheese and yoghurt. Dairy products, poultry and fish are consumed in moderation, whilst red meat consumption is kept to a minimum. These elements are key to a balanced, healthy diet.
GRK Fresh Greek offers a range quality produce imported from Greece, including extra virgin olive oil, pure and natural Greek honey and Greek yoghurt, with the highest quality local meats, fresh herbs, vegetables and fruits, in order to deliver an authentic dining experience.
