«Νοῦς ὑγιής ἐν σώματι ὑγιεῖ». That's the ancient Greek saying which means "a healthy mind in a healthy body" and underlines the necessity for keeping both your mind and body in shape. Greece has a great tradition in sports -considering they were the ones who introduced The Olympic Games- as well as in extra virgin olive oil.
Aegina, a small island at the heart of Argosaronic Gulf, has so many things to love: sandy beaches, picturesque alleys, authentic fish tavernas, traditional villages, the ancient ruins of the Temple of Goddess Afaia. Yet, this island is famous for its pistachios. This remarkable nut which has been called superfood and has inspired every possible recipe, from marmalades and Mojito cocktails to soaps and face creams.
Since I can remember, my grandmother used to tell me: "If you want to live a long and healthy life, eat only what you can grow in your backyard". Well, that sounds rather difficult for someone living in the city, but I think the main idea is eating mostly fruits and vegetables. This is the groundwork of the Mediterranean Diet Pyramid.
The holidays are over and so are festive meals and who has not exaggerated at least once? Well, at least it was worth it. As a result, we are a bit out of it and weighed down by a few more pounds. According to Brian Wansink of Cornell University (NY), January 3rd is the day of the year when according to the scale we are the heaviest. Blame it on cocktails and dinner. But even worse, it will take months to return to our ideal weight. Don't despair and don't wait for the moment of truth when trying on your swimsuit.
Certainly not! So why give value to aesthetics when it comes to a product? The answer seems simple: because nowadays appearance counts more and more. But it is not like that, or at least not so for PHILIPPOS HELLENIC GOODS. What we look at tells us about what the object is. About its essence. It is the same notion that motivates PHILIPPOS HELLENIC GOODS when it comes to introducing a product.
