Who doesn’t love a good pizza?! I know I certainly do! That being said, pizza can be a little tough sometimes. I feel like we get pigeon holed into thinking it was something that has to be ordered, and is only good when it’s loaded with tons of cheese, high sugar sauce and sausage. At least I used to think that. And that gets tough/stressful/uncomfortable when you’re trying to eat a little healthier and be more mindful of what you’re putting into you body and feel your best throughout the day. Again- at least it was for me.
However, with a lot of trial and error, I realized Pizza can be really healthy, delicious, customizable and gourmet! If you do it right you can even eat it for lunch and not feel weighed down and heavy for the rest of the day.
Take this pizza for example. I used a high protein wrap, oil spray, seasoning and loaded it with veggies and topped it with a little feta cheese. Delicious. I promise.

Pizza for lunch? I say YES! Who’s with me? Here’s one of the ways I do it to avoid feeling weighed down and heavy afterwards. Trust me, I love a Chicago style deep dish with a cold refreshing beer as much as the next person, but I save it for special occasions/treats. Doesn’t mean I can’t still eat what I want, when I want it! Might just need some tweaking 🍕 . This pizza is loaded with veggies, protein, and flavor. I have a blog post up with a few different pizza options that might tickle your fancy… link in profile/comments Let me know if you need help finding a way of eating that helps you feel nourished, satisfied and energized to accomplish all that you want to accomplish❤️. I’d love to help!
I also love loading up my pizza with all kinds of veggies like spinach, mushrooms, peppers and even jackfruit if I’m feelin’ a BBQ pizza! Anyhow, I just wanted to post a bit on how to make pizza a little healthier and easily worked into a mindful eating plan. Don’t worry! More to follow…
