The aspiring nutritionist talking about eating pizza…. contradicting? NEVER, because this nutritionist LOVES balance. I love my sweets & treating my body to what it craves. I do NOT believe in denying myself of what I really desire, sounds like self-torture to me, no?
Life is too short to not eat some pizza once in a while! In my case, I may eat it once every two weeks! Yum in my tum, kapeesh?
HOWEVER, when I do eat pizza or any kind of carb & sodium loaded crap I compliment it with some FEEL GOOD foods so my mind is tricked into thinking it is a bit better and my stomach also thanks me!
STEP 1: Purchase a cheap-o pizza.
(I prefer COSTCO’s “KIRKLAND” Brand) Just PLAIN pepperoni & cheese– who doesn’t love a good pepperoni and cheese?!?! It’s $3 a pizza. Yas. (Sorry if you are lactose intolerant! There is always a way to substitute so let me know if you need a hint) I also make sure I have chicken breasts to cook because I will add some to the cheap-o pizza.
Step 2: Slice up chicken & toppings of choice.
Slice up chicken into small chunks/cook chicken (season your fave way). Then slice onions, slice cilantro, slice spinach , avocado– these will be your toppings so more or less depending on how you like it. all the meanwhile, bake that pizza!!
Step 3: Decorate the cheap-o pizza with all the colors of the rainbow!
After the pizza is done, slice it up and sprinkle it with chicken and all of the goodies that you chopped up. I also LOVE to squeeze lemon juice on top…. trust me. 😉
Sooooo, ya. Moral of the story TREAT YOURSELF. ❤
But when you do treat yourself, make sure to add some goodness to it so your body has something to work with.
B A L A N C E. Isn’t it great? ❤
