Freskos’s updated menu is full of healthy foods ideal for people looking to eat right in 2021. Studies have revealed that the Mediterranean diet can reduce the likelihood of cardiovascular disease. The diet has also been recognized by the World Health Organization and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans as a healthy and sustainable diet to follow.

An important aspect of the Mediterranean diet is the consumption of whole grains, fruits, healthy fats, and vegetables on a daily basis. When following a Mediterranean diet it is also vital that fish, eggs, poultry, and beans are eaten on a weekly basis. The diet also includes moderate intake of dairy products with the exception of Greek yogurt. An important element of the diet is also that red meat consumption must be limited. Freskos’s dishes, such as its classic Greek and Horiatiki salads are both full of vegetables.

In order to limit red meat consumption, the Mediterranean diet recommends substituting plant-based foods for red meat. Poultry, eggs, dairy, and seafood can be used to complement the plant-based foods.

With the Mediterranean diet, it is also important to reduce saturated and trans fats, which can lead to heart disease. Instead, healthy fats, such as olive oil can be substituted. Olive oil along with nuts and seeds contain monounsaturated fat, which lowers total cholesterol as well as low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels. All their souvlaki meats are marinated in olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, garlic and oregano.

Start or end the day with their healthy imported Greek yogurt topped with a choice of fruit, nuts, Greek preserves or honey.
