51 Grams of Fat

Sunday, September 01, 2013

That's how much fat was in the two slices of cheese pizza I just consumed. What an awakening.

I'm ashamed to admit how much I used to eat pizza, but am proud to say that was the first slice I'd had in a long time. It didn't even occur to me to look before putting it into my mouth.

On the one hand, I'm kind of glad I found out this way. Because that's the last time I'll be eating pizza for a while. On the other hand, I'm kind of irritated because it's not even 3 and I have less than 10 grams of fat for the day.

It'll be a veggie burger and spinach kind of night.

    I think its great that you blogged about it. This is what makes the difference for me, really. The feedback, the honesty. The new beginning.

    I haven't done this in a while, but your post reminds me of a pizza I used to make, which was quite good. I made homemade dough, put on some tomato sauce, and then, instead of cheese, put roasted eggplant (as a paste) on top of the sauce. Instead of meat, I roasted vegetables -- onion, zucchini, yellow squash, sweet peppers, mushrooms. Fresh basil to top.
    Really good -- but probably not to everyone's liking. emoticon emoticon

    Not the end of the world -- that one splurgey mistake won't make or break you!

    To echo the comment below, homemade pizza can really satisfy a pizza craving without breaking the calorie bank. When I'm craving pizza I usually take a whole wheat tortilla, put some sauce on it, some cheese on it (I don't eat dairy at home, so mine's fake cheese, but you get the point), and a bunch of veggies and put it in the oven for around 10 minutes. I cut it into 8 slices and you can eat the whole pizza for around 300 calories! Super satisfying and healthy.

    With that said, I also believe in not totally restricting ourselves -- nothing wrong with the real deal pizza once in a while =)

    Hope you enjoyed the veggie burger and spinach! Could be worse -- those are a few of my favorites.

    I am sure you are talking about a take out pizza from a famous chain. Good thing we can make our own from scratch. Still high in cal/carb, but certainly far less than 51 gms of fat.
