life without pizza

If the saying “you are what you eat” is true, without a doubt, I would be a greasy slice of pepperoni pizza. I eat pizza at least 10 times a week. I’m aware there are only 7 days in a week so you do the math. I don’t discriminate either, I love all kinds of pizza… homemade, wood oven, frozen. If there is dough, sauce, cheese and pepperoni, chances are I will eat it and enjoy it!

I don’t even know how people live being gluten-free or lactose intolerant. A life without a greasy pizza just isn’t worth living or so I use to think.

All this pizza indulging has not be kind to my waist line. I don’t blame it entirely on pizza but when I look back at my food journal, one 5 letter word happens to jump out daily and it’s not salad.

As my birthday quickly approaches, I have decided that I am giving myself the gift of healthy eating. Until further notice, pizza and I have mutually decided to an amicable separation. We will remain good friends and will work on finding a way to continue being in each other’s lives. Pizza has always been a delicious meal and I will always be thankful to pizza for being so easily available and always under 5 bucks. I will use this time to allow my taste buds the opportunity to experience other flavours and look forward to embracing more mixed greens in my life.

I am not asking for privacy at this time because sh*t just got real. A life with no pizza!?!?!  I’ve never suffered heartbreak like this before so I’ve enlisted the help of Sam Gladish, a holistic nutritionist to guide me during this difficult transition. She has programmed my phone to re-direct all calls to Pizza Pizza directly to her and will be available to work through the daily struggle of figuring out “what’s for lunch?”

The journey started today, the journey of life without pizza.

  1. I’m sad about this, especially because I love pizza and especially, Pizzaiolo and found a location near Bloor/Islington last night (and I think they’ve opened another one on Dundas St W near the Kipling subway stn somewhere); but I understand why you have to do it. Best of luck! Please call me when you’re ready to return to pizza so I can join you! 🙂

  2. Way to go Mar!! You will be thankful and healthy at the same time. Nice pic. on instagram. Looks delicious and has inspired me to buy a ton of fruit today. ox
