You might think that a pizza without crust, cheese, or tomato sauce is pointless. I guess I agree–you can hardly call a crustless, cheeseless, sauceless dish a “pizza” no matter what it looks like. Enter “meatza”! Meatza replaces crust with a thin layer of seasoned meat upon which you can add your favorite sauce and toppings. For those of us on the autoimmune protocol, it is a fun and healthy way to enjoy something like everyone’s favorite finger food. I’ve served it at game nights to perplexed but delighted guests with nary a complaint. Feel free to use whatever kind of meat you like. Some of my other favorite toppings include prosciutto with arugula and fig preserves or sliced pears (inspired by a really good local pizza I wish I could still eat)!
Find Out Your Genetic Risk
23andMe is the first and only do-it-yourself genetic test. Combined with ancestry information, it’s an incredible value compared to getting all of that data from your doctor, and they’re adding new analyses all the time. They frequently run specials around the holidays, too, with buy-one-get-one deals or $50 off. Not only is it a fun opportunity to investigate your family tree, see the likelihood you’d wind up with your physical traits, and connect with distant relatives all over the world, but it’s an invaluable opportunity to learn about your genetic inclinations toward disease. My own experience was revolutionary, both for me and my husband!
