The Mediterranean Diet: Enjoy a Healthier You

The Mediterranean Diet: Enjoy a Healthier You

It is no secret of antiquity that a Mediterranean diet is exceptionally good for you, especially where your cardiac health is concerned. In fact, many scientific and medical communities recommend a Mediterranean diet for longevity and disease prevention. If you are concerned about your long term health or longevity, here are some ways that a Mediterranean diet can help:

Heart Disease

Studies show that many adults who adhere to a Mediterranean diet have a lower LDL or “bad” cholesterol count, and thus are at a lower risk for developing arterial deposits that can lead to heart disease. Doctors also reported that persons who eat a Mediterranean diet on a regular basis demonstrated a lower incidence of heart disease mortality, and mortality in general. So, not only can Mediterranean food make your heart healthier, it can add extend your lifespan.


Experts have found that women who regularly subsist on a Mediterranean diet have a decreased risk of breast cancer, especially when their diet includes extra virgin olive oil and lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, staples in Greek and Italian cuisine.

Neurological Disease

The Mediterranean diet excels at preventing or mitigating the effects of diseases of the nervous system and the brain, such as Parkinson’s Disease and Alzheimer’s. Olive oil and fish contain high concentrations of omega-3 fats that improve brain function and reduce the risk of neurological diseases.

Now that you know the benefits, here is a brief guide to making the change to a Mediterranean diet.

The Mediterranean Diet

Implement a lot of plant-based foods and vegetables.

Replace butter in your cooking with olive oil or canola oil products.

Use herbs and spices to flavor and season your food instead of salt.

Limit red meat to only a few times a month.

Enjoy fish and chicken at least twice a week.

Eat with family and friends.
Seriously. Developing strong family relationships and renewing or maintaining old friendships directly affects both your mental and physical health. Making food about cultivating a sense of community and affection is a deeply rooted belief in Mediterranean culture, and it is a strong foundation for any healthy lifestyle.

Drink red wine in moderation.
Red wine, which is rich in antioxidants, has been linked to longevity and good health in numerous cultures, and it pairs wonderfully with most Mediterranean foods.

Changing your diet may require a major lifestyle shift, but eating healthier is the first step towards being healthier and living longer. Make a healthy start by cooking up some Mediterranean food, or come visit us at Grappa Seattle, and we will get you acquainted. Live the good life with a Mediterranean diet, and enjoy a healthier future.

Dolma, Saganaki, Spanakopita: It’s all Greek to Me

Dolma, Saganaki, Spanakopita: It’s all Greek to Me

We’re biased, but we think there’s nothing better than Greek food. There are so many different dishes to make and experience, and they’re all filled with incredible flavors and the rustic taste of the Greek culture we know and love. Some classic Greek dishes include Dolma, Saganaki, and Spanakopita. If you've never heard of these dishes and you don't know how to make them or what’s in them, we're here to help. We serve all of these at items on our dinner menu at Grappa, but we thought we’d give you a little background information on what you’re ordering in time for your next visit.

Read on to check out this quick breakdown of some of the classics.


Dolma is stuffed grape leaves. They are healthy and delicious, and they're a great finger food to make for basically any occasion. You can buy pre-made dolmas at the grocery store, but what's the fun in that? You can make your own dolmas and they will be much more authentic than anything store bought. They are actually one of the easier Greek foods to make on your own. If you want to keep it really traditional, you can also stuff them with meat like lamb or beef - at Grappa, we keep it true and simple. The dolmas on our menu have rice and tzatziki sauce, and are a crowd favorite.


This is basically pan-seared cheese, and what’s better than that? It is traditionally prepared with Greek cheese like graviera, kefalograviera, and kefalotyri, all of which are hard yellow cheeses. The cheese is dredged in flour, and then pan-seared a very high temperature on the stove.

You can buy these Greek cheeses at a specialty cheese shops, or you can come try ours at Grappa. We use our favorite sheep’s cheese, brandy, fresh lemon juice - and serve it with fresh pita. So simple, yet so delicious!


This is another classic Greek dish. It is a delicious spinach pie made with phyllo dough, spinach, and feta cheese. It can be an appetizer, or can be a side to your main meal. Spanakopita is probably a little more complicated to make, but don’t be intimidated. If you want to try it on your own, you can simplify this recipe by buying pre-made phyllo dough at the grocery store, often found in the frozen section. However, at Grappa Seattle, we make each Spanakopita fresh when it’s ordered, and that includes rolling the phyllo dough - so, please allow 10-15 minutes after you order for this delicious dish to be delivered fresh to your table.

As you can see, these Greek dishes are wonderful and are filled with great flavors. You'll have tons of fun making these dishes from scratch and you'll get some insight into the beautiful Greek culture. However, if you’re not the kind to get adventurous in the kitchen - just come visit us at Grappa Seattle. We have these dishes and so much more - a true variety of authentic Greek dishes that are sure to satisfy your craving for fresh, flavorful, and rustic.
