I am starting my second round of p90x. And this time my focus is on nutrition. Which is particularly challenging during this holiday season. But so far so good! Especially with delicious meals like this taco flatbread pizza!
For me, the hardest part of eating healthy is not living alone. When I lived by myself in law school, healthy eating was never an issue. I controlled what food was in my fridge and what cluttered my cupboards. Now as husband and wife, grocery shopping is a team sport. Since Matt is a woodworker, he is all about the snack food that’s easy and fast to eat–which basically means unhealthy (but delicious) food that is rather hard to resist.
So finding meals that are healthy but still have that snack-like taste can be difficult. This taco flatbread pizza was an excellent compromise–full of protein, little bit of veggies, and still falls into the pizza family so both Matt and I were happy. This has definitely made it into our recipe rotation.
