La Passeggiata

La passeggiata is the Italian walk. Italians eat well and stay healthy in many ways:

  • They eat organic natural foods
  • They cook food correctly
  • They eat fruits and vegetables
  • They exercise via walks each day

Walking is one of the best exercises you can do. Humans were explorers and walked a lot throughout their history. Modern humans tend to sit in cars, in front of computers and watching TV. Get up with your family and friends and walk. Walking each day ensures you can still walk as you age!

In Italy you can see people strolling around town after lunch or in the evening as the sun sets. It helps digestion, it brings the family together and its healthy. Everyone does it. It is not only healthy but extremely social. Italians love to see other people and be seen by people. What a great way to meet people in your town. You stroll and stay in touch with each other. You don’t need Facebook to do this in Italy!
