It is important that we take care of ourselves and watch what we put into our bodies.

I eat quite healthy. I became a vegetarian at twelve, turned strictly to a vegan diet at fourteen, then went back to vegetarian at eighteen, and now once again I am back to a strictly vegan diet.

I had returned to a permanent pure vegan lifestyle for a few years now (no poultry, seafood, or dairy). Throughout it all though, I never went back to eat any type of red meat or pork for about thirty-three years now. I did not even have any desire to.

All I eat is fresh fruits, grains, vegetables, legumes, and nuts.

Whatever I consume has to be plant-based. I stay away from table sugar and salt and unhealthy fats as much as possible and I do not cook with any of those ingredients at all.

I had gotten a taste for a pizza last week.

Pizza, in general, is not a very healthy snack coming out of a pizza parlor or a frozen food aisle and should be avoided or consumed very sparingly due to its artery-clogging properties. It is too cheesy and greasy, a bad option to raise cholesterol levels. A homemade pizza can be healthy if prepared with the proper and well-portioned ingredients.

I would not dare to have ate a dairy/animal derived pasta dish, nor would I have been tempted to indulge. The idea is totally repulsive to me. Nonetheless, there is a pizza on the healthy side minus the salt and if not eaten too often.

It is the Vegan Harvest American Flatbread Pizza that I discovered some years ago.

It is quite expensive now but it was on sale at my local Stop & Shop last week for $5.99. Sometimes there is a buy one get one free deal. Whole foods also sell this non-GMO Organic vegan pizza.

The regular price is $8.99 which is far too much, especially for the size of the pizza. Altogether, I purchased eight. Three boxes for me and five more for my family who also loves this pizza.

I had not had any of the vegan pizza in a long while now so I delved into my pies as a treat, and definitely not to make a habit out of it even though the product is totally vegan (the mozzarella cheese alternative is made from tapioca starch and coconut oil), not containing any cholesterol or trans-fat.

It also only contains 1g of saturated fat and 1g of added sugar (2g of sugars altogether). The sodium content on the other hand is quite high, but like I said I do not make a habit out of eating the pizza often.

This pizza is so delicious and I always enjoy every bite of it!
