Italians love pasta and they eat it every day!

Why are Italians so slim when they eat pasta every day? There are so many answers to this question. One of them is that they pay a big attention to what, when and how long they eat. Instead of using butter they use olive oil for everything not only for salads. They buy their veggies from the market most of the time. In Italian supermarkets, they sell what is in season and all vegetables are organic. They are not a mass producing country and most of their veggies and fruits come from their own farms.

Italians aren’t concerned with calories because they stop eating when they’re full. They eat late but they don’t rush. It is estimated that Italians eat over sixty pounds of pasta per person. Today pasta is everywhere and can be found in dried (pasta secca) and fresh (pasta fresca) varieties depending on what the recipes call for. They have enough time for lunch, to cook a good meal at home instead of eating in a restaurant or fast food. For dinner they usually eat a lighter meal. For example a salad with veggie noodles.

It’s important to include in your diet a lot of vegetables!

A real help to change a cucumber, zucchini, squash, carrot, radish, or regular potatoes into veggie pasta is to use a Spiral Slicer.
