The Lebanese diet mainly consists of fresh vegetables, seeds, legumes, low-fat dairy, nuts, and fruit. Instead of cooking with fatty butter or cream, olive oil is used. While olive oil is still high in fat content, it is full of mono-unsaturated fatty acids which can lower cholesterol and improve heart health. Olive oil also helps in control blood clotting and blood sugar levels.
When eating a Lebanese diet, fresh veggies, fruit and legumes can be consumed in a greater quantity compared to meats and high-fat dairy ingredients which have high amount of calories . Even high-starch carbohydrates are not very common in this class of cuisine. Small amounts of rice and lentils are more common than white bread, noodles, or potatoes.
Lebanese food is extra tasty and appreciated by the palette because of the variety of spices and fresh herbs that are included in so many of the common recipes.
Mint is a commonly found herb in Lebanese dishes, and while this plant may seem like it is just a garnish or an aid to freshen your breath, it is actually helpful with digestion and is full of carotenes and vitamin C.
Your body will love you for having preference for lebanese food .
