Fresh and dried fruits, pulses (like lentils), endemic wild herbs and aromatic plants, and rough cereals are consumed in great amounts. Food of animal origin is more peripheral in nature. Dairy products are consumed on a daily basis in moderate quantities as well. The main supply of fat is olive oil, used in both salads and cooking. There is a moderate use of alcohol, mainly wine which accompanies meals, and a light quantity of Tsikoudia at the end of a meal. And, the most common desserts are yogurt with fresh fruit, and pastries based of honey.
