🇪🇦 Spain always ranks among the healthiest countries in the world. The Bloomberg Healthiest Country Index, Money UK Index and others regularly place Spain in pole position in their league of healthy nations. Here in Spain, we eat a Mediterranean diet rich in omega-3, fats and protein, which has been linked to a lower risk of dementia, heart disease, and cancer, placing Spain us the top five countries in terms of life expectancy. 🍊 🧀 🥗
✨What are the stars of the Mediterranean diet? ✨
The most famous is olive oil, known as “liquid gold”, which is rich in oleic acid and lowers cholesterol levels. Fruit and vegetables are also an essential part of Spanish recipes as are fresh salads and a variety of hearty stews with pulses, vegetables and meat for the winter months
Within Spain, Valencia often tops the healthy city charts. Its fabulous climate, vitamin-D inducing sunshine, plenty of green spaces coupled with a well-balanced diet and a laid-back and relaxed attitude make it the best place to live. Its residents outlive those of most other Spanish cities, on average reaching their mid-80s. Could it be partly down to their unbeatable paellas?
