The Island of Crete, where the average life expectancy is the highest!

The unique Mediterranean diet is highly appreciated: local extra virgin olive oil and fresh dairy products consumed daily, freshly-picked herbal teas and earth seeds with high nutritional value. In Crete, breakfast time is the ideal opportunity for Greek families to say "Kalimera" (Good morning) and treat neighbours to baked pies or tasty home-dried figs and spread Nutella® on the warm, handmade, crispy "horiatiko" bread.

The Cretans can't resist mixing the sweet flavour of Nutella® with the salty flavour of the local dairy pies. Fruits accompany all meals, especially in the morning and often come in the form of warm apple and pear pies or compotes and smoothies with traditional thick Greek yogurts.
