Red wine Red wines are produced by destemming and crushing the grapes into a tank and leaving the skins in contact with the juice throughout the fermentation. The skins yield many of the antioxidants that can make wine healthy. Certainly wines, and especially red wines, are a popular feature of Mediterranean cuisine and dining. The secret is moderation: in true Mediterranean style wine is consumed to be enjoyed with friends, not to get drunk. In fact, we know that up to two drinks of wine per day reduce heart disease risk by about 30 per cent. Drinking more than two drinks of wine per day though causes a steady decrease in the benefits for the heart. A glass of wine with your meal as you enjoy it with friends, however, will…

from the editor

Have you ever made a diet resolution? Most of us have, at one time or another, decided that three months of bingeing on nut-filled chocolate and Netflix is having a deleterious effect on our waistline and health. In response you may have decided to sign up to some extreme form of dietary denial. That may have taken the form of a paid subscription or just a commitment to living on grapefruit and quinoa for six days a week*. Being overweight is not a good thing, and health requires good nutrition. So some of the extreme measures you may have resorted to are understandable, but the thing about extremes is that they are, by their nature, unsustainable. Your diet is simply the food you consume, and the best diets for weight maintenance and health…

Olive Oil Olive oil is intrinsic to the Mediterranean style of eating. When choosing olive oil you must opt for “extra-virgin”. Extra-virgin olive oil is made from the first pressing of olives. The oil is extracted by the traditional cold-pressing method, where no solvents (chemicals) and no heat are applied. The olives must be crushed within 72 hours of picking for the oil to be classified “extra-virgin” as this will minimise breakdown of nutrients. Some producers will do the crushing within a few hours of picking, which is labour-intensive and costly but produces the best oil. The result is an unrefined oil derived from the first pressing of the olives with a delicious and delicate flavour.…

black bean beauty

Black beans are full of goodness, but fibre is probably one of the greatest assets of this awesome legume, given that the benefits to our digestive system are second to none. From one cup of cooked black beans your body gets around 15g of fibre, which is well on the way to the recommended daily intake of 25–30g per day for adults. More specifically, although all legumes contain a certain amount of starch, black beans contain a large proportion of resistant starch. Resistant starch is a form of starchy fibre that can’t be digested in the small intestine, and passes through to the colon where it is then fermented by bacteria. This process of fermentation produces metabolites, short-chain fatty acids, gases and small amounts of organic acids and alcohols. These metabolites,…
