This All-Chicken Crust Pizza Packs 25 Grams Of Protein, 4 Grams Of Carbs

With so many people tweaking their diets to avoid certain types of food, it’s hard to find something that actually feels good to eat, both before and after.

In fact, in 2016, one out of every two people in the U.S. tried lowering their carb intake. Still, for those working hard to maintain a ketogenic diet, or for diabetics looking to keep their blood sugar levels in check, it’s not always easy to indulge in the not-so-healthy foods we all know and love.

With that said, Real Good Pizza is working to change the game for pizza lovers everywhere. It is the first gluten-free and grain-free pizza made with an all-natural hormone and antibiotic free chicken crust and parmesan cheese. And with 25 grams of protein, and only 4 grams of carbs, this is pizza you can actually feel good about eating.

With Real Good Pizza products in more than 2,000 Kroger stores, whether you’re simply looking to carb down, perfect your keto routine, or are just getting into the habit of healthy eating, Real Good Pizza is hacked to be healthy.

Next time you load up your cart at the grocery store, tear down that mental parameter you’ve built around the frozen pizza section and learn to eat pizza once again.

A Breakdown of How ‘Healthy’ Trader Joe’s Frozen Food Really Is

Mother Jones Food Smackdown

It’d be nice if we could cook a gourmet meal for ourselves every night, but most times that ain’t happening. Quick and easy is always a solid go-to, and if you hit up a local Trader Joe’s, you’ll come across tons of delicious options. But how do these frozen dinners stack up nutritionally? Kiera Butler of Mother Jones has the answers for a few popular picks.

In her latest “food smackdown,” Butler tackles pre-made grub like potstickers, mac ‘n cheese and pad Thai, giving us a general nutrition and taste test breakdown. Here’s  a peek at some of the frozen grub below:

The Chicken Burritos are no doubt delicious and fare well in the calorie department, but they’re pretty heavy with salt.

The veggies on this pizza add some great nutritional value, but again, lots o’ salt isn’t so great.

A solid amount of protein and less salt than other frozen meals make the Chicken Potstickers a guiltless and tasty option.

The polenta is a decent choice considering it’s low-cal and doesn’t contain much sodium, but notice the serving size — it’s really tiny.

Despite its fat content being on the high side, TJ’s Mac ‘n Cheese isn’t as salty as other options here, and word on the street is it’s pretty delicious.
