To be honest there is no perfect diet. It all depends on the individual partaking on the diet and what areas they are specifically targeting. However, recent studies have shown that certain ingredients play a huge role on your consumption and your overall health. Also, Iceland is no longer the number 1 country healthiest country. Guess who made it to number 1? Spain! Most of the foods in the Mediterranean diet emphasizes fruits, vegetables, legumes, seafood and poultry. But there is another reason why eating the Mediterranean diet is healthy. The secret: it is all about the herbs and spices!
