The Power of Pizza

I am still addressing the "Gluten Free and Grain Free" movements (currently by using papaya enzymes to digest gluten and grains), as they relate to my own health and wellness, but in the mean time, I am still enjoying an occasional slice of pizza at Whole Foods………..with no guilt.

Pizza

One of my ongoing treats is the Pizza Oven at Whole Foods Markets. They are made by hand with very wholesome and healthy ingredients.

 

Whenever I want a quick snack that will hold me for a few hours, I will run over to Whole Foods and order a "slice", hang out outside at the whole foods outdoor seating, drinking a "maybe all natural" Izze soda (only fruit juice and sparkling water) and just enjoy the day. I always found it funny that one slice of Whole Foods pizza can allow me to be nourished and content for three to four hours. All other pizzas have the opposite effect, in that I'm starving a half hour later. 

The Whole Foods Pizza over in downtown Portland, firing up another batch of masterpieces

I used to call my Whole Foods pizza a "guilty pleasure", but now I call it an "innocent pleasure". Quality wheat, organic cheese (although I am gradually phasing down my intake of dairy, and they do make vegan pizzas although I never tried them). Topped with fresh organic vegetables, free range chicken and turkey (although I mostly do vegetarian pizza because of my choice go decrease, NOT ELIMINATE, meat ), spices such as basil, chives, and other quality greens such as spinach. All of this allows the body to have a good dose of short term nutrition, and equally if not more important, the pizza taste simply BLOWS AWAY away any other pizza I run across, to the point where I seldom eat any one else's pizza except for Whole Foods, mainly because I don't know what's in those other guy's ingredients and they never seem to taste as good as those at Whole Foods.

It's a good day when your timing is right and at Whole Foods, they are taking the pizza straight out of the oven to your plate. you can still see the oil's and cheese on the surface of the pizza bubbling and boiling. Their pizzas take 10 minutes to cook, and since they are always making a new hand made masterpiece, I've learned to order and come back in 10 minutes right when it's coming out of the oven.
