Everything in Moderation
This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Freschetta. All opinions are 100% mine.
Since I've been on a journey to healthy living and lost 45 pounds people immediately assume that I deprive myself of good food. That is not true. I am a true proponent of everything in moderation. I certainly indulge and when I do, I go all the way. If I want to eat chocolate, I'll eat Godiva. If I want ice cream, I'll go to a specialty shop or eat a premium brand. I am a native New Yorker and New York is known for its pizza. Here in the South, it has been difficult to find good pizza and I generally don't eat it unless it is a brand found in the frozen food section or I make it myself. Before yesterday, I'd only had pizza once in the last six months and I crossed my fingers hoping that the Ferschetta roasted portabella, mushrooms and spinach pizza I was trying would be worth the indulgence.
I'd been sent a pizza kit from Freschetta and was excited to try it out. Unfortunately my pizza stone arrived broken but I decided to channel Tim Gunn and "make it work".
The pizza crust turned out nice and crispy and the taste of the pizza was truly delicious. To put it in context, because my husband is both lactose intolerant and doesn't like tomato sauce he rarely (if ever) eats pizza. He saw that the Freschetta pizza did not have a red sauce and he just couldn't resist the urge to try it. He absolutely loved it and believe me when I tell you that an endorsement from him is huge, he is an extremely picky eater.
So, my verdict is Freschetta knocked it out the box. I do not regret indulging in this pizza that rivals good New York pizza and the calories were totally worth it. At 310 calories a serving, 12 grams of protein and 11 grams of fat it actually is a great choice. I rounded out the meal with a nice salad and some fruit. This is certainly a meal that I will be repeating soon, probably tonight!
