Too Good to Be True… A nutritionally-balanced pizza you can eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner sounds too good to be true, right? A Glasgow University scientist, Mike Lean, claims otherwise. He says the pizza contains exactly 1/3 of the recommended amount of calories, protein and carbohydrates, plus vitamins and minerals an adult should consume daily.
Seaweed is used in the pizza’s crust to lower the dish’s sodium level. Also added are “magnesium, potassium, folates, vitamin A and extra red pepper in the tomato sauce for a boost of vitamin C,” according to a recent article. In theory, because it contains 30 percent of your balanced nutritional value for the day, you could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner with no negative health effects.
The key: in theory. Everything is good in moderation—and pizza is no different. Instead of giving in to the hype, opt for a Healthy Eats-approved pizza that’s good any time of day (just don’t make one for every meal!). Plus, do you really want a scientist creating your food?
