Pizza Friday

What better way to celebrate being snowed in than with pizza and beer?!! I know, I know, you’re saying, “Heather, this is supposed to be a healthy living blog, what are you doing?!”

Well part of living a healthy life in my book  is enjoying pizza and beer 🙂 It makes me miss the college days when we were all stuck in the dorm anyways so we’d grab whatever we could and go sledding, then all pile in one tiny room and order pizza and drink beer. Sigh.

Except these days instead of cases of Bud Light I’m enjoying a sophisticated (ha) Rising Moon—Blue Moon’s spring brew. I guess they were hoping the groundhog might not see his shadow?!

With a nice orange slice, of course.

Before I had my own little beer and pizza party I celebrated Nutella Day with a multi-grain English muffin, almond butter, and NUTELLA!! I just happened to have a little sample pack lying in the pantry….I hope processed chocolate spread doesn’t have an expiration date. 😉


nutella and almond butter

Speaking of English muffins—they are a prime example of why you should read Nutrition Facts labels and not just believe the “blurbs” on the front. The “High Fiber” version has considerably less than the “Multigrain” version! (And they’re both made with enriched whole grain flour.)

Off to go watch Twister on tv—such a good movie!!

    I grew up in Kansas so I always felt I could “relate” to twister. I abso-frigging-lutely agree with you on pizza and beer being an important part of healthy living! It’s all about balance!

    I agree with you that enjoying the occasional pizza/beer splurge is a part of healthy living! What’s life without pizza? Certainly not fun, and healthy living is supposed to be FUN! 🙂

    YURMMMMMM!!! That pizza looks so good! I definitely agree that pizza and beer can be part of a healthy lifestyle, if done right!

    pizza + beer = perfection

    Healthy living is balanced living. No one can live on carrots and oatmeal alone — or you COULD but wouldn’t be very happy. 😉 I’ve fallen in love with homemade pizza!

    Enjoy the snow and stay warm and safe!

    Nutella sample packs would be great for me! The entire tub is a little dangerous!

    Pizza and beer is perfect for a Friday night 🙂

    Hey, you know I’m down, I had pizza two nights in a row. Nutella day?? I missed this? no fair.

    Life without pizza and beer is not worth living! 😉

    I adore peanut butter, but Nutella is pretty amazing too. There’s a pizza place near us that has a dessert Nutella pizza on this sweet dough, covered in confectioner’s sugar — SO tasty!

    Sounds yummy to me!

    I love beer and takeout nights! It reminds me of college too!

    Pizza Friday or cookie Friday, it’s definitely a day that needs to be celebrated! Just because you are having pizza and beer doesn’t mean you aren’t healthy!

    Nothing wrong with pizza and beer in my book.
