Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza [Recipe]

The cheeseburger pizza isn’t a new invention. Papa John’s Double Cheeseburger Pizza is back on their menus by popular demand! Far from being the worst possible choice when going out to eat, when you look at the nutrition information for a slice of this little piece heaven, you’ll see that the macros really aren’t all that bad! The issue really only comes when you decide to polish off a whole one on your own. 😋

Broccoli Cheddar Frittata | Low-Carb Instant Pot Recipe

Frittata, egg-bake, crustless quiche, omelette or tortilla! Whatever name you call them by, these primarily egg-based dishes are an awesome way to start your day and can be very simple to prepare as make-ahead breakfasts that are easy to grab on the go.

A balanced diet is a taco in each hand, wouldn’t you agree?! ? To say I’m partial to the odd taco would be like saying Yogi Bear kinda likes picnic baskets, or Homer Simpson occasionally eats donuts.
