DID SOMEONE SAY PIZZA?
I posted my homemade pizza on my IG story yesterday, and y’all went NUTS over the fact that I was able to eat it & still stay accountable with my goals.
“Wait you can eat that?”
“I wish I could eat like that!”
“How did you do that and still make it healthy?”
Now, listen. If you’re anything like me, pizza is my one love (sorry jason ... jk ily)
But forreal, ya girl LOVES her some delivery Dominoes pizza. HOWEVER, my insides don’t love it. It makes me feel extremely bloated. It makes my stomach hurt. It’s just not worth the misery to me, to be honest. ♀️
So, let me give ya the deets on how I did this, sista!
When I knew I wanted pizza, I thought to myself ‘how can I make this so it makes my insides happy?’ I went through each ingredient and found a way to make it more nourishing.
Whole wheat crust, low sugar sauce, lean protein, veggies, + fat free cheese. Voilà!
The first thing I did in the morning (before I ate anything) was enter in all of the ingredients. This ensured that I allotted the accurate amount of calories for the meal.
Then, I planned my other meals accordingly, using the leftover calories I had for the day. Thus, not going over my calorie goal for the day!
I ate the pizza. Satisfied a craving nourishingly, and went to bed with a full + happy tummy
Key points: THINK about how you can best nourish your body. PLAN ahead. ENJOY yourself.
Healthy eating does NOT have to mean chicken + broccoli every night if you don’t want it to, sweet sister
