Italian food focuses on using fresh, seasonal and simple ingredients, resulting in healthy and hearty meals which provide a well-balanced diet. Mediterranean diets are well known for their health benefits, and Italian cuisine is no exception. Incorporating fresh vegetables, olive oil and grains in many dishes, Italian menus offer nutritionally rich meals which don’t compromise on taste. Furthermore, at Casa Italia we use the finest ingredients sourced from Italy, prepare food in the traditional way and have the perfect Italian wine to set off your meal. This ensures you enjoy maximum flavour and health benefits, whether dining at our Italian restaurant or ordering Italian takeaway in Meersbrook or Sheffield.
The following are the main benefits you enjoy from our authentic food:
The dishes at our Italian restaurant are packed full of fibre-rich foods, such as vegetables and grains. Fibre is important for your digestive system and eating plenty of fibre can reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and bowel cancer. With the government recommending we all eat 30g of fibre a day, Italian food is an excellent option to help those in Meersbrook and surrounds reach this target.
Whether dining in or ordering Italian takeaway, our Italian menu includes plenty of healthy fatty acids which help keep your heart healthy and reduce inflammation. This includes monounsaturated fat found in olive oil as well as omega-3 from fish. There is even evidence that drinking moderate amounts of wine can reduce the risk of heart disease, so you don’t have to feel bad about enjoying a glass or two of our Italian wines.
Italian food incorporates plenty of ingredients full of powerful antioxidants, which help protect against heart disease, cancer and other diseases. By using fresh ingredients in our Italian restaurant, including plenty of vegetables, our dishes provide a source of antioxidants for customers in the Meersbrook area, such as vitamins A, C and E. You can also find antioxidants in our range of red Italian wines.
Power of Garlic
As well as tasting amazing, garlic has antibiotic and antifungal properties, helping keep you in good health. It is also good for your heart and may help lower your risk of various cancers. Garlic is a key ingredient in Italian food, allowing you to enjoy all the benefits it has to offer.
