Yes…We want to eat whole, natural foods as often as possible.
But guess what!?
If all we are doing is constantly DEPRIVING ourselves and telling ourselves we CAN’T have the foods we love, we are going to end up binging.
That is why I love finding a way to balance cravings with staying on track. It’s why I like making Macro-Friendly versions of the not-so-healthy meals I love.
This helps me satisfy cravings while still making progress and remaining CONSISTENT.
Remember it’s not perfection but consistency that leads to long-term results.
So here is one of my favorite macro-friendly pizza recipes – The Thai Chicken Pizza!

“I’ve always loved Thai Chicken Pizza so wanted to find a way to make it macro-friendly and healthier. It’s the perfect way to curb cravings and keep yourself on track.” – Cori
8 ounces Cooked Chicken Breast
1 Joseph’s Whole Wheat Lavash Bread
66 grams Baby Carrots
18 grams (about 3 stalks) Green Onions
4 tbsps Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce or Tamari
12 g (2 tbsp) PB Fit Peanut Butter Powder
4 tsp Chili Garlic Sauce
46 grams (3 tbsp) Egg Whites
20 grams Shaved Parmigiano Reggiano
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and place lavash on a baking sheet lightly greased with cooking spray. Place in the oven until it begins to crisp and brown.
As it browns, cook chicken if needed or tear up precooked chicken. Shred or thinly slice carrots and chop up green onions.
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add the carrots and most of the onions (leave a few to top the pizza with). Let them begin to soften and brown.
Combine the sauce ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine (soy sauce, pbfit, garlic sauce).
Then add chicken and the sauce to the skillet and heat. Let it bubble and make sure it soaks into the chicken.
When everything is heated through, add egg whites to the skillet. Let them cook and stir in. Then top the lavash bread with the mixture and sprinkle with the cheese.
Place in the oven until the cheese is melted and the lavash is browned to your liking.
Want a diet that allows you to still indulge in the foods you love while finding a balance that leads to long-term results?!
