Last but not least are the snails! Snails have long been a source of protein for the Cretans since they were abundant and rich in omega-3 fatty acids (higher concentration of fat than French snails).
In conclusion, we see that for a healthy and balanced diet we need to set an example of Cretan habbits. Less red meat, most frequently fish, seafood and chicken and plenty of fruit, vegetables (boiled and raw), legumes and herbs. The above “rules” will be found in any proposal for slimming, strengthening diet. For the snails we do not insist!
