It’s a question that’s been asked so many times especially with the rise in popularity of low carb diets, keto diets and paleo diets among others, but pasta has been a staple of the Italian diet for hundreds of years without any mention of obesity or weight gain.
What's the best way to enjoy pasta? Let's see what we can learn from the Italians.
All you need to do is add 2 or 3 tablespoons of EVOO per day to a well balanced, nutrient rich diet and this will help to keep your immune system in good working order, fight off infection and save on trips to the doctor’s office, especially helpful during the winter season!
Did you know that a daily serving of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) can lower your risk of obesity?
It makes you feel fuller for longer which means that you’ll eat less and consume less calories throughout the day. This is due to the satiating properties of the monounsaturated fat (the healthy fat). Just ask the Mediterraneans who regularly take a shot of EVOO first thing in the morning. It’s a way of providing the body with pure, clean nourishment before even sitting down to a plateful of food.
