Enjoyed the Mediterranean Diet when I was in Italy and the South of France. Greek yogurt with a creamy texture.

I've essentially been on the Mediterranean diet for 15 years now. Keep your meals colorful, and make them from scratch. Meats, vegetables, cheeses, oils, fruits and dairy. Nothing processed.

I occasionally have a McDonalds burger or whatever, and I enjoy it, but I feel slow afterwards, whereas with my regular meals I feel fast.

Raw foods, or salads and fruits are always part of the Mediterranean diet.
