Italian food pros and cons
Great variety. It isn’t just all pizza and pasta as many people think. Red sauce dishes are the most common but there are also gravy and cream based sauces. Not well known vegetarian dishes also like caponata and pasta primavera. There are soups and roasts throughout the cuisines as well.
High in grain and starches. For the carb conscious or insulin sensitive Italian is a poor choice. There are some low carb dishes but the bulk contain rice, pasta, pizza and bread. Carbs are not very good for even the healthiest of us and should be consumed sparingly.
