so how do you track pizza? we have a local place whose pizza we love, and tonight rob went in and got one. fortunately we like thin crust and not a ton of cheese and this place really loads on the veggies. their crust is extremely thin and uber crispy--i would LOVE to be able to make pizza crust like that--but i have never mastered it. i actually think you need a giant pizza oven that gets really hot to get that lovely SNAP in your mouth when you bite down.
so i had no idea how to enter this in the tracker. found an entry for a frozen thin crust margharita pizza and entered two servings of that--should be close.
SIX HUNDRED CALORIES.
have no idea if thats right or not--but the amount i ate probably is pretty close to that--so i am going with it. if its all correct i still ended up within my range--but just barely. i was amazed to see that i hit all my nutritional targets today--even protein.
so i may be over somewhat--but i am in the neighborhood. it works out really well--i eat on the low end of my target range throughout the week, and then let it spike up to the high end on the weekend. i can splurge a little if i want to--eat a larger portion or have a higher calorie breakfast--not feel bad about it.
a couple times this week i actually had to EAT at the end of the day to get within the low side of my calories. that felt beyond weird. edys slow churned frozen yogurt is great--its a nice little 100 cal. dessert that feels a lot richer than that. no artificial sweeteners, some calcium and some protein. i can put some fruit on it and get another fruit serving too. the strawberry is really good. and the cappucino chocolate chip is great too--but slightly higher in calories.
