A single slice of pizza with vegetables is a fine choice, especially if it’s made with a whole wheat and/or thin crust. A cup of pasta with marinara sauce is all right, too. The problem is, few of us stop there. Ironically, southern Italian food, prepared the traditional way, is among the healthiest in the world. Unfortunately, Italian restaurants are often parlors for the presentation of huge mounds of overcooked pasta and pizza. And even before these arrive, you’ll have ample opportunity to eat bread. So unless you want to overload on carbs and send your blood sugar for a wild post-meal ride, tread carefully.
