The Mediterranean diet is well as an healthy diet alternative. I have launched a 28 day gluten free-Mediterranean intermittent fasting program. It incorporates colorful fruits and vegetables, hearty fish — plus a splash of flavorful olive oil and perhaps even a glass of red wine — among other components characterizing the traditional cooking style of countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea. Although historically rich in grains, this diet is easily made gluten free.

Mound the potatoes in the center of your serving dish, put a mound of beans at each end, put mounds of tomatoes and mounds of tuna around the beans.
Put the egg halves strategically around, and then an anchovy that’s been curled up on top of each egg.
