I’m a huge fan of the bagel – always have been, but they are so high in carbs. Now that I’m all about the Mediterranean diet, I occasionally will have a whole wheat or multi-grain bagel. But I miss the flavors – sesame, poppy, onion, everything!

I have not been able to find whole wheat and multi-grain bagels that are “flavored” other than being whole wheat or multi-grain. Does anyone know where you can find a great whole wheat sesame bagel? or any other flavor that’s also whole wheat???

Sicilian CaponataAlways looking for great recipes for my new way of life, I stumbled upon this site (well, actually my husband did and sent me the links) – http://mediterraneanvegan.blogspot.com/. They have listed some fabulous looking recipes for the Mediterranean Vegan including -

Sicilian Caponata
This eggplant/aubergine based dish has different varieties throughout Italy, most popular in the regions of Sicily, Naples, and Genoa. This recipe is for the vegan-friendly Sicilian Caponata. It can be served as an appetizer on top of bread, on pasta, or as a main dish.
Serves 3-4
What you need:
4 tbsp olive oil
2 eggplants/aubergines, chopped
1 large onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, deseeded and diced
6-8 plum tomatoes, diced
1 carrot, diced (optional)
2 tsp fresh basil or 1 tsp dried basil
1/2 cup green olives, chopped
1-2 tbsp capers
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
raisins (optional)
In a large pan, heat the olive oil. Add everything to the pot and simmer on medium heat for about an hour. Serve!

Spanish Croquetas
You can order croquetas at pretty much every bar in Spain, though they are usually made of ham and cheese or fish. A vegetable variety is rare, but the most common types include mushroom, spinach, and eggplant/aubergine. This recipe is for spinach croquetas, but you can replace the spinach with whichever vegetable you fancy! Note: this recipe requires around 2 1/2 hours of refrigeration.
Makes 10 croquetas
What you need:
2 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp margarine (or 2 tbsp more olive oil)
4 tablespoons flour
1.5 tsp salt
1.5 cups soy milk
2 cups fresh spinach or other vegetable
1 cup water
1 cup breadcrumbs
Spanish croquetas are made of béchamel sauce mixed with filling. So first you will need to make your béchamel. In a medium sized pan, add the olive oil and butter until hot. Add the flour and salt and mix until a smooth paste forms. Add the soy milk and whisk on medium heat until it thickens (around 15 minutes). Then add the spinach and cook for another 5-7 minutes. If using another vegetable, lightly cook it before adding into the béchamel. Put everything in a bowl and refrigerate for 2 hours. After you have refrigerated the batter, you can start forming the croquetas. With wet hands (the water will allow the breadcrumbs to stick to the croquetas), roll around 10-12 croquetas into log shapes around 7 cm long (3 inches). In a small tray, lay out the breadcrumbs and roll each croqueta into the breadcrumbs until it is covered. Refrigerate breaded croquetas for 30 minutes before frying. After you have refrigerated the breaded croquetas, add olive oil to a frying pan until its about 5 cm (2 inches) tall. The olive oil should be a bit smoky when it is ready. Add the croquetas and fry on each side for around 2 minutes or until the outside is crispy. Serve hot!

More Health Benefits of the Mediterranean Diet

I’ve seen the benefits of the Mediterranean diet in my cholesterol, weight and general well-being. But, I just found an article that shows this lifestyle may even help reduce depression. A Spanish study followed 11,000 people who followed the Mediterranean diet closely and found that these people had a 30% reduction in the risk of depression than those whose diet had few of the crucial Mediterranean elements.

There was a whole host of positive benefits that have been found by following the Mediterranean-style diet, including “the diet may improve blood vessel function, fight inflammation and repair oxygen-related cell damage – all of which could reduce the chances of developing depression.” – according to the study, published in the Archives of General Psychiatry journal.

From what I read, it is beneficial to those who MOST closely follow the diet. So, it seems as if you can’t just take some aspects of the diet and enjoy all the benefits, but you must really adhere to the plan to reap all the health rewards.
