Yesterday I wasn’t hungry when I woke up (snacking at the movie theater late the night before) but by lunch time I was craving fresh produce. I had a heap of it! I made a huge spinach salad with strawberries and feta, though I was wishing we had goat cheese :( and on the side a whole yellow bell pepper, sliced. Hello nutrients! Didn’t I tell you the theme of the month is Eat With Color?
Afterwards I decided to have a slice of toast with almond butter and cinnamon for “dessert”. Man I do miss chocolate though LOL.
That evening, I was fortunate enough to be invited to a blogger tasting and tour over at Naked Pizza in Brighton. I was super excited because I’ve only ever been to one other blogger meet up, but never one in Boston! We started off with a little chat about the company – they started in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina to get more jobs for those who were rebuilding their lives there. Naked pizza really wants the best for the employees and their customers!
Then we were off to tour the kitchen. They start with a 10 grain crust, using oats, brown rice, buckwheat, quinoa, amaranth, teff, spelt, tapioca, and two kinds of wheat, plus they add prebiotics and probiotics. Talk about good for you! No refined grain crusts here :)
After working the dough, they add their tomato sauce which only has 4 ingredients: tomatoes, water, fresh basil, and a dried herb packet. The cheese they use is also part-skim.
They’ve got all kinds of toppings. From freshly cut veggies to hormone and antibiotic free meats. Their pepperoni is even nitrite free – so they add extra paprika to give it more red color!
Into their oven it goes. Wham bam, from working the dough until it’s put in the box takes only 7 minutes!
We enjoyed so many different varieties of pizza. Regular and thin crust. Meat and veggies.
Thank you so much Naked Pizza!
I am definitely going back here next time I want pizza :)

Now I’ve got to get back to studying for my Nutritional Epidemiology midterm. EEK!
