All Mediterra bars are based on the Mediterranean Diet that has been studied and noted by scores of leading scientists as one of the healthiest lifestyles in the world.
Less of a diet and more of a lifestyle, the Mediterranean Diet is a way of eating based on the traditional foods (and drinks) of the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea. Thereâ€™s an emphasis on consuming more whole grains, fruits, greens and healthy fats, and less meat and sweets.
