THE CRETAN DIET
MEET THE CRETAN DIET AND THE CRETAN PRODUCTS
The local products of the island, such as olive oil, dairy products, honey, endemic plants and various wild herbs, have formed the eating habits of Cretan people and have contributed to the fame of Cretan diet for being the healthiest nutritional model in the world. This explains why the Cretan Diet is the base for the so-called “Mediterranean Diet”.
Above all, the Cretan Diet is a way of life which includes values such as hospitality, family, but also fast and daily exercise. The Cretan Diet is not just what we eat but the way we live our life and cultivate, and this is what we invite you to discover here in the Cretan Gastronomy Center!!
“Don’t look for a pill that can substitute for the Cretan Diet.
There is no such thing.”
Serge Renaud, 1998
