Totally a football day today.
So diet or not.. it's football day. And football demands football food.
What is football food you ask?
It's delicious. It's at least slightly greasy. It's American comfort food.
Now, football food is bad for you. Ninety-nine percent of it is swimming in grease or heavily processed goodness. Like the beloved Velveeta plus Rotel combo. Classic.
I have no idea what goes into that alleged food product, but I suspect it is either made by the gods or some underground crime syndicate looking to create a new, edible drug.
Anyway.. PIZZA for dinner!
Now, pizza is usually pretty much crap when you look at it nutritionally. Especially for those of us with a gluten issue of any kind.
Pro-tip: Hell's Kitchen Pizza in Manitou Springs, CO has excellent G.F. pizza. Only them. Everyone else can only pull off a "meh" pizza or a "guess I'll eat it because they upcharged me $5 to make it GF".
Tonight's dinner and the pizza bell without actually being pizza. It's got a bit of greasy deliciousness but still manages to add some healthy parts from the ol' food pyramid in. I'm going to need to research the food pyramid after posting this. I just realized that I have NO idea what the current one looks like or if it's even a pyramid anymore. I could get behind a "Food Sphere". Just sounds fun.
- Shredded meat of 1 small spaghetti squash
