Italian low carb diet

Pizza, pasta, and everything high carb–these are what comes to mind when we talk about Italian foods. While these may look sinful to the low carb dieter, one can still get to enjoy Italian food without worrying too much about stuffing on too much carbs. You can try Italian salads, but make sure that you avoid those that make use of pasta and bread. The salad can be eaten as a meal of its own, or you can eat is as a side dish. Look for Italian salads that contain vegetables and Italian cheeses, which are great when combined with Italian herbs and spices. Frittatas, the Italian omelet, are also another low carb dish that you should try. Its ingredients include herbs, vegetables, chicken, and salami – all low in carbohydrate content.

For dessert, you can try the gelato, which is low in carbohydrate content. There are also a lot of low carb Italian desserts out there, so this won’t be too much of a problem.
