We often hear that Mediterranean food is good for our health. I personally think that this is due to it’s high vegetable content.
We can’t deny the fact that vegetables are full of vitamins, water and minerals which is exactly the stuff that our body needs to stay healthy, keep functioning properly and fight all those common, ugly and nasty diseases including cancer.
Here we go … another fantastic, healthy, low calorie and slimming recipe!

Although I do very much prefer coconut oil for cooking. The grape seed oil and “plastic bag” idea makes my life very simple.
