Greece has gotten a lot of credit for its historic dietary choices. «The Mediterranean Diet» isn’t just a trendy weight loss plan or hot topic on The View, it’s actually recognized by UNESCO as a piece of «Intangible Cultural Heritage.» I’m not here to knock an eating pattern focused on olive oil, fresh fruit and vegetables, some fish, poultry and very little to no red meat. But, what kinda gets left out of the whole «eat like a Greek» thing is cheese. Greeks eat more cheese per capita than any country on Earth. Above is a classic Greek salad: tomato, cucumber, red onion, olive with an oregano sprinkled slice of feta cheese on top and a pool of olive oil below.
