Awesome Mexican Pizza!

 In Blog

Just because you’re trying to get in shape doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself of good food. Case in point: the Mexican pizza. Going through a drive thru certainly won’t help, and most Mexican pizza recipes will skip out on the protein and overload you on cheese.

However, we’re going to hook you up with dish that packs a nice 1-2 punch of protein and healthy fats. We’ll use an avocado to make our own guacamole while using ground sirloin as our protein of choice. We’ll want to stick with sirloin here, as other ground meats will throw off the ratio of protein and fats. This pizza is also loaded with fiber, so consider that a bonus.

While you’ll top your pizza with some greens, UEFP clients will still need a side of vegetables to make it a complete meal. If you’re currently eating carbs with your meal plan, then simply skip out on the guacamole because carbs and fats eaten together don’t always go well. Instead, you can have some rice and veggies on the side.
