Pizza, a health food? Here's the 411
So where did these guys come up with so many nutrients? First, they added some seaweed into the bread. Sound a li’l fishy? Well, seaweed actually has pretty good taste, lots of vitamins and very little sodium. One of the main problems with most frozen foods is their high sodium content – the average frozen dinner contains way more salt than you need in an entire day! Then to sneak in some extra vitamin C, there’s also red pepper mixed in with the tomato sauce. And there are lots of other add-ins that contain vitamin A, folate, and other good nutrients.
Here’s the thing: this dynamic duo is marketing their pizza as a complete meal that contains everything you need for a healthy lunch or dinner. But they didn’t mention anything about its fiber content, or about the fact that it’s still a processed food. It’ll be interesting to see if this health food takes off, and if it does, how Dr. Lean’s and Mr. Maclean’s newest ideas – things like curry, and fish and chips – do as well.
