AND NEVER MISS A NEW POST
By Marvin | January 4, 2018 |
Yummy, yummy pizza! Who doesn’t love it? In all variations, it’s one of America’s favorite foods. Normally we would suggest eating pizza as a post-workout meal. Za’ contains a lot of carbohydrates from the wheat in the dough, fats from cheese, and vitamins and minerals from the veggies on top. All of those nutritional factors make our cheesy indulgence an ideal snack to eat after working up a sweat. Unfortunately, when something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Many of us eat pizza too often, and not as a post-workout meal after a heavy lifting day. That means our bodies aren’t running a sugar deficit and don’t need an abundance of carbohydrates. Furthermore, the gluten in the wheat can cause inflammation and digestive problems. To top it off, most of the time the vegetables on top of your slice aren’t the freshest.
So what should we do about this dilemma? Pimp it up as usual and make it paleo! Let’s add eggs and tuna for extra protein and cut most of the carbohydrates out. That way, you can have it anytime, anywhere and most important: without a guilty conscience. Isn’t that freaking outstanding? Let’s get to it.
