Health and cooking

Wellbeing and health are very much influenced by lifestyle and in particular from the diet. A correct diet can greatly increase the likelihood of preventing disabling and deadly degenerative (or "chronic") diseases, now widely spread in Western countries, almost like a modern epidemic.

This section will discuss which diseases we can prevent and even cured with the diet and why it is recommended for good health to avoid milk and to avoid eggs, which are animal foods whose consumption poses the same problems as meat consumption (fish included).

Eating healthy does not mean sacrificing the tastes and the pleasures of the dining table, or to have less choice of dishes and ingredients: this is well explained in the section New foods in the kitchen, which contains many useful tips and ideas. The list of seasonal products helps us month after month to know what are the seasonal vegetables and fruits, to choose the freshest, tastiest and most economic!
