Healthy Global Cuisine: Italian
By Sarah E. Brown
Recent films including Eat Pray Love have emphasized Italian culture’s
decadent food heritage, but Italian food is much more than gelato and
tiramisu. Italy birthed the Slow Food Movement, an international
movement to prioritize local, organic, sustainable agriculture methods
for food production in Italy and beyond. (Source:

fresh, delicious organic ingredients need sacrifice neither excellent
nutrition nor authentic flavor .
