What am I doing right now?
Not much, just drinking a can of diet ginger ale and eating some sausage crust pizza.
Why am I drinking ginger ale?
Because I saw the most amazing ad for Canada Dry the other day. I joined a Facebook group that shares 1960’s and 1970’s advertising, and this little beauty popped up in my feed. (below) It’s a vintage commercial full of swinging singles sexily sipping soda. The tagline is “Canada Dry. One gulp is for thirst, the other gulps are for kicks.”. Groovy, man.
Also groovy, is this low carb sausage crust pizza.
It’s a “meatzza” if you will. The crust is made from a combination of turkey breakfast sausage, egg, oat fiber and mozzarella cheese. And it’s topped with sugar-free tomato sauce, more mozzarella cheese and any other topping that you like. The sky’s the limit when you’re making a meatzza. And one slice clocks in at just 1g net carbs. Very groovy indeed.
You know what they say about meatzza, “The first bite is for hunger, the other bites are for kicks.”.
