The olive oil–rich, traditional Mediterranean diet has long inspired healthier food choices among Americans. Even today, we continue to learn more about how Mediterranean flavors can revolutionize American menus. The positive health impacts of the olive oil-based, traditional Mediterranean diet—rich in plant-sourced ingredients–has been widely researched. What’s more, abundant scientific evidence indicates that shifting to a more plant-forward diet will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions from food production, mitigate climate change, and cut water usage. Learn more about the health benefits and sustainability of the Mediterranean diet.
This project is a collaboration among the International Olive Council (IOC), The Institute Culinary of America (CIA,) in association with the Menus of Change University Research Collaborative (MCURC).
