I’ve determined that food is one of my ultimate sources of gratification. Supply, taste and the sense of feeling satiated are about as dependable as they come. This isn’t an issue, per say, until one starts abusing the means of fulfilling hunger. Bad food tastes delicious; simple as that.
Cheese? Yes, please. Ice Cream? Doesn’t count as a food, so there is always room. Pasta? Every noodle deserves a quality tummy. So how does one manage to conquer healthy living without feeling completely deprived…or like a role model to sacrifice…or like a poor soul plate shopping as he or she watches everyone else’s mouth enjoy the delicious parts of life? Find amazing alternatives.
If I could love a food as much as my mom, it would be pizza. Maaaybe a bit of an exaggeration…but not really. Cheese is my comida-downfall. Sprinkle, no, smother that on some light sauce, garlic, chicken and black olives, all snuggled together on a sturdy structure of crust, and you have won over FitWit Stephanie’s heart. It is just so customizable and delicious, what’s not to like?! Oh, yeah. The whole calorie/carb aspect, but sometimes that realization gets lost in the aroma and visuals, and one succumbs to its Italian goodness. Sorry to be so descriptive, but this is coming from a recovering pita pizza addict. Well, let’s just say I finally put my health foot down and demanded an alternative that still held the same incredible pizza euphoria. I’ve been a non-stop recipe hunter since moving in with my new roommate, as she loves food, cooking and baking as much as myself, and on my quest I came across a very intriguing idea: Zucchini Pizza Bites.
