IDEA: If you’re craving pizza and realize that you’re out of marinara, or if you’re just looking to switch things up a bit, try using mashed avocado as a tasty and delicious base for your pizzas.

Not only is it filling, but also you are pumping your body with a natural energy that you can use to attack your workouts or a hectic work day.  Add in some goat cheese and a dash of parmesan, and you’ll be licking your fingers wondering, “how in the world could I eat this this fast?”

Remember to always customize meals to complement your diet and goals. Recommended for hardgainers.
