Italian Healthy Eating Guide

Many people across the world wonder why Italians obviously know something that they do not. Looking at obesity around the world, Italy is far below the rest and world-wide Italian restaurants are incredibly popular. You will find that most eat heaped plated of meatballs and spaghetti, slabs of garlic and cheese bread smothered in butter and rich pastas in Alfredo sauces. Aside from restaurant popularity will you find most household cooking Italian cuisine in their own kitchens very often?

We would love to share the secret to eating healthy Italian food eaten the Italian way.
Not ONLY PASTAS AND PIZZAS you will find in an Italian household and in Italy the entire meal does not consist of only pastas. It usually serves as first course in small amount and preceded by either fresh veggies, fish, chicken or meat, crostini and grilled vegetables as main course.
Many COURSES AND SMALLER PORTIONS is something you find even when you eat a light meal you enjoy more than one course of small portions though. You limit overeating a huge plate of spaghetti when you know more courses follow.

LIGHT FARE is another mistake many outside of Italy make with sauces to use an example. Non Traditional Italian cuisine has sauces drowning pasta, heavier creams are used and often will you find that traditionally Italian cuisine will be enjoyed with light sauces and smaller amounts of meat during the week.

A typical Italian breakfast is delicious and small including espresso or coffee with a light brioche, piece of toast or pastry. Our main meals are usually lunch time and lunches include antipasto, vegetable, meat or fish and starter of pasta, rice or soup. During a Sunday meal you will find all of the courses including desert, while weekdays often do not include all the courses.

Dinner times are satisfying, but lighter and smaller which could include cold cuts, soups, vegetables with a small plate of pasta and Italian cheese. It is seldom that Italian eat between meals and snacking are more fruit and enjoying deserts we love nuts and cheese portions while our famous deserts are kept for weekends and festivities in a normal household.

The same goes for our world-famous pizzas something nobody seems to get enough off. In Italy pizza is left for Saturdays and during outings with family and friends. A traditional Italian pizza we would enjoy is higher in nutrients and calories while lower in calories with cheese and veggie toppings.

One thing that is a fact is that Italians regard quality as incredibly important and food continues to play a major role. We love sitting down as family and it is a big daily event for Italian families and we believe that any food that is eaten in moderation is healthy and truly enjoying what you eat is how you must see food.
