Eating Healthy in Turin
Eating healthy does not have to be complicated or expensive. In Turin, the best and cheapest way to get good quality produce is go to the markets or order directly from local farms. My favourite markets here are the local produce markets and organic markets.
Healthy eating means eating predominantly vegetables, some fruit, and some whole grains, such as rice, barley, oats, quinoa, buckwheat. Protein sources can be animal or vegetal and fats are an important part of all diets as they help in vitamin and mineral absorption, hormonal balance among other things and if you are going to buy anything organic, it should be oils and butter.
Here is a list of the best places to find the above high quality foods locally in the city of Torino. Some of these are physical locations and others are websites you can order from which will deliver to your doorstep.
