@Tony that’s true. Nobody does that. In fact, I’ve noticed some Italians are very serious about eating local products and such, but others would eat sushi all day long, or meat, or I don’t know, fast food.
But in regards to Italian foods, I’v noticed here people eat a lot of pasta, cooked so many different ways! They eat vegetables, lots of vegetables! Which is so great, no wonder they so often live to be 100! They also spice their meals with healthy spices and olive oil, which is very healthy (unlike vegetable oil, from what I’ve heard). And last but not least, they know how to cook their meat! I mean, that ragu Bolognese or Italian steaks - oh my god, mouthwatering! Also, seafood. Lots and lots of seafood. I must say, I’ve learned how to enjoy squid, shrimp, clams and mussels here in Italy, I didn’t even look at them before I came here
