Savvy Medical studies conducted as far back as the 1940's have shown that the cultures surrounding the Mediterranean Sea have lower rates of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, along with a higher life expectancy than other Western cultures. The key dietary habits of this region, known as the Mediterranean Diet, are now also common throughout the Middle East and Europe, and are based on the principles of balance and satisfaction, not deprivation. This style of eating includes minimal meat and plenty of olive oil and garlic, and consists mostly of grains, fruits, beans, and vegetables. Cheeses and yogurts are also daily essentials of this healthy diet.

Ile de France offers a full selection of the Goat or Brie cheeses that are popular in the Mediterranean region, so don't forget to include us into your daily "pyramid".
