the way i felt about the buffet is the same way i used to feel about pizza. i never liked to order it for just Sonny and i cause i could easily put away half of the pie by myself. i felt horrible afterwards- full of food and guilt. pizza is definitely one of my fav foods. correction- papa johns pizza. i also love PJ's because they have totally given the consumer the power of CUSTOMIZATION. call me late, but i was elated to see just how detailed things have gotten as far as creating your own pie. i couldn't be happier- you have soooo many options and can still enjoy a nice slice or two and keep your diet in check.
friday nite dinner:
we got the garden fresh (bell pepper, olives, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, cheese) and added grilled chicken on thin crust all for around 220 calls a slice. switching to thin crust alone saves around 60 cals and 16 grams of carbs. it gets better:
- no sauce/light sauce/extra sauce
- can sub grilled chicken for sausage/bacon/pepperoni
- less cheese/no cheese
- thin/wheat crust
- add extra veggies
- square cut for better portion control
and yep, most of the other major pizza chains e.g. pizza hut, dominoes, etc. (yawn) have the same/similar options too, so cut calories, carbs, and fat and customize away.
