Not sure that this is a truly Mediterranean diet. My mother was from Italy in the region south of Rome. Her people ate carbs (pasta, bread, etc.), but in reasonable quantities. For example, pasta was a side dish, not a full dinner plate. Veal was a staple. In the old country, veal is cheap and plentiful, and they don't have PETA raising a ruckus. Mom didn't have diabetes and she was never overweight.

i agree... the one i kind of go by suggests things like bread dipped in olive oil and roasted garlic... i eat whole grain pasta and brown rice... couscous... polenta... etc...

European veal is different from American veal I think. The difference is how the animal is treated.
