FOOD & WINE HERITAGE AND INTRODUCTION TO THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET: Let’s discover the secret of one of the healthiest diets in the world while walking through the Dalmatian town of Omiš. Let’s find out why it is beneficial for health, what the locals eat and how to apply it in everyday life
Considering diet basically means a lifestyle, the Mediterranean diet is one of the healthiest today. The abundant foods have a beneficial effect on the body and the method of preparation and consumption on the soul. It consists of plant-based foods, fish and meat, olive oil and red wine, which are used fresh every day. In Dalmatia, people still prefer buying groceries at markets, from local small producers and fishermen, rather than in large shopping centres.
Like Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Cyprus and Morocco, Dalmatian cuisine combines gastronomic, cultural and natural heritage included in the UNESCO list as part of the Mediterranean diet. Omiš gastronomy also combines food from the sea, river and surrounding hills.
While walking around the town, we’ll learn through stories how the people of Omiš used to eat, and during a visit to the Omiš fresh food market how they eat today. I will be happy to share the answers to questions such as which foods are traditionally used in Dalmatia and in which season, why are they healthy ad how to cook them.
