How many carbs are in a thin crust pizza?

I was amazed that after the years of posting that I've never actually posted this. I felt like I needed to share this after seeing a plethora of posts online about the impossibility of pizza on a low-carbohydrate diet. Again, people are making this stuff, wayyyyyy too complicated. I'll admit I have a weakness for pizza. The addiction is made more difficult by the fact it's one of the easiest things to call up and have delivered to your house. Yet, despite many fast-food companies offering low-carb versions of their offerings, no major chain in the U.S. offers a low carb pizza. Your first inclination might be to order a thin crust pizza, but a medium Domino's Crispy Thin Crust is almost 93g carbs. Even if you manage to eat one serving (1/4 of a pizza), you're still over 20g carbs, and let's be honest, who eats just a 1/4 of thin crust pizza? I don't have an eating disorder for nothing baby!

Everyone swears by the Fat Head Pizza (a cream cheese based crust)…

Keto Hot Chocolate

I'm quite amused at how hard people make the Keto diet sometimes online. What is Keto you ask? It's a simple philosophy of staying under 20g carbs a day. Yes, it's really that simple. You can eat butter, fat, meat, cheese but things like milk, sugar and bread are mostly no-nos. It's really interesting when you start looking at grocery stores for healthy options only to discover even soy and almond milks are sweetened and sugar-free cocoa mix still has a ton of carbs.

However, here in America there's no shortage of options and this is one of my favorites. I buy no sugar added chocolate soy milk. It's 1g net carb and I can find it at my Wal-Mart Supercenter (though they hide it on the bottom shelf back by the crisps and juices [not in the cooler]). I've also found a version at Harris Teeter with no sweetener which then requires me to add a couple of Sweet and Lows, but this brand: Soy Slender already has Splenda in it.

To give it that yummy, creamy hot choc…
