Health, well-being and healthy weight: the TOP 10 of the best Mediterranean spices

This article is part of the LIBSHOP white paper: Mediterranean diet for strong health, the summary of which you will find here. We have often been told that we should eat 5 fruits and vegetables a day. If this method aims to push us to turn more towards products from agriculture and not towards processed products, poor quality protein or even hydrogenated fats (crisps, pastries, sandwich breads, foods fried…), then it seems laudable in order to move towards a healthy lifestyle. But once this stage has been reached, we often tend to become accustomed to the same products, in more or less healthy quantities. We sometimes take the opportunity to consume high quantities of certain fruits rich in fructose daily, morning and evening, rather than green vegetables, root vegetables or legumes for example, which have less impact on blood sugar levels. In the same way, when we think of fruits and vegetables, we do not necessarily think of “plants” in their entirety, and even less of spices, herbs and other condiments that are often shunned, out of ignorance or laziness.

Autumn and winter vegetables

Autumn and Winter vegetables, by Libshop. Vegetables will be a valuable source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, all protective micronutrients that your body needs to face winter! Be careful to distinguish fibrous 100% vegetables from “energy” vegetables such as squash, potatoes, sweet potatoes, Jerusalem artichokes, cassava, parsnips or yams, which contain starch, a source of carbohydrates which will give energy to your body. These will be more beneficial if they are cooked in the oven, steamed or in water, and possibly cooled, particularly with regard to potatoes, so as to lower their glycemic index. This is also how most Mediterranean populations consumed them in the past. Like, share and mention those who might be motivated to eat more vegetables!

Discover in photos the paradisiacal region of Yahchouch, in Lebanon

The village of Yahchouch is one of the 7 villages surrounding the Jabal Moussa nature reserve, part of the UNESCO biosphere reserve network. Etymologically, the word Yahchouch comes from the Syriac Aramaic and means "The wounded god", in reference to the Syriac God Adonis who died in the Ibrahim River which passes through the village of Yahchouch. Moreover, speaking of the Ibrahim River, we can admire it from the Yahchouch valley, as evidenced by the photos of exceptional beauty. It is also possible to reach Lake Chouane from Yahcouch, to extend the visit. Here are some photos of this magnificent region.
