Here at Rich Thomas we believe food provides us with one of life’s greatest pleasures.
When we’re enjoying a meal, our taste buds react to different flavors which sends pleasing messages to our brain. Whether it is by dining on comfort foods like mashed potatoes or apple pie, or indulging in aphrodisiac foods, such as chocolates and oysters, which boost our serotonin levels, most us have had experience improving our mood with food. While we love delicious deep-fried delicacies as much as the next person, we also like feeling good and eating healthy, nutritious meals is key to that feeling.

Greek cuisine has been the champion of healthy cuisine for many years, so much so that it lends itself to one of the most well-regarded diets out there, the Mediterranean Diet.
