11 Health Benefits of Eating Italian Food

The mediterranean diet is essential to Italian Food and provides many health benefits.

Eating a balanced diet is an essential part of good nutrition, improved overall health, and a lowered risk of chronic disease. Italian food is an integral part of the Mediterranean diet — which focuses on fresh vegetables, olive oil, and grains — is an excellent part of a balanced, healthy diet. Eating Italian food offers many health benefits for you and your family!

Manage your weight

The best and our Italian food is made from fresh ingredients and vegetables, including fresh tomatoes, fresh greens like broccoli di rabe and onions. We also have whole wheat pasta and gluten free options. Fresh onions with whole wheat pasta, greens, mushrooms and vegetables is a spring must.

Fiber Foods

Fiber helps regulate blood sugar levels, cholesterol and is good for your digestive system. Vegetables and grains are fiber rich and always present in Italian dishes.

Eating fish is an important source of omega-3 fatty acids. These essential nutrients keep our heart and brain healthy. Two omega-3 fatty acids found in fish are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Our bodies don’t produce omega-3 fatty acids so we must get them through the food we eat. Omega-3 fatty acids are found in every kind of fish, but are especially high in fatty fish. Some good choices are salmon, trout, sardines, herring, canned mackerel, canned light tuna, and oysters.

Heart and Brain

Eating fish is an important source of omega-3 fatty acids. These essential nutrients keep our heart and brain healthy. Two omega-3 fatty acids found in fish are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid).

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Olive oil is rich in omega fatty acids. This healthy form of oil is full of antioxidants and extra virgin olive oil EVOO is used in our kitchen! Olive oil helps to reduce inflammation, protect against arthritis, protect your heart, and fight disease. Olive oil is great for your heart.

Eat your Garlic

Garlic can fight sicknesses and disease. It may lower the risk of breast, colon, stomach, and throat cancers. Also, garlic has been shown to offer heart protection properties! And is rich in vitamins too.

  • Manganese: 2% of the Daily Value (DV)
  • Vitamin B6: 2% of the DV
  • Vitamin C: 1% of the DV
  • Selenium: 1% of the DV
  • Fiber: 0.06 grams
  • Decent amounts of calcium, copper, potassium, phosphorus, iron and vitamin B1

Garlic contains antioxidants that. It against cell damage and aging. It may reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

Garlic has known beneficial effects on common causes of chronic disease, so it makes sense that it could also help you live longer.

The Mediterranean diet is one of the healthy eating plans recommended by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans to promote health and prevent chronic disease.

It is also recognized by the World Health Organization as a healthy and sustainable dietary pattern and as an intangible cultural asset by the United National Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.

This is the real deal

Now I found this hidden gem of a real Italian restaurant. Im upset that I did not know about it sooner. This is the real deal spot on straight from Italy taste, it brings me back. Wow

Yelp

Thought I try this seemingly simple Italian restaurant in Fort Lauderdale. I’m from the north east and lived in Italy so I can be a hard reviewer with Italian restaurants.

I started with a glass of red wine. Also was given bread, cheese and olives to start with. The bread was amazing which is hard to find in Florida. Very authentic Italian bread

I then had prosciutto e melone. I know it is tough to ruin this dish. All I can say it was perfect. The ingredients were fresh. 

I ordered pasta carbonara next. It’s a great dish to test out authenticity. guanciale.. eggs etc. 

It’s was excellent and authentic. 

Only tiramisù for dessert today so I forced myself to try it. 

This is a definite must.. Food is cooked to order. So it’s fresh and classic.
