Does Blotting Your Pizza With A Napkin Actually Save You Calories? Yes. Yes It Does.
Unless I’m faced with a slice of pizza that is literally dripping with grease, I try to keep whatever is left of my masculinity intact by just eating it without any napkin-blotting alterations. I eat the slice the way the chef intended for it to be eaten. Other than, you know, dousing it in garlic powder, red pepper flakes and a dash of parmigiano reggiano. I mean, come on, I’m only human.
If you do BLOT THAT GREASE, though, you might actually be making the pizza healthier. (Or less unhealthy? I’m torn.) According to the findings below, every time you blot a 324 calorie slice of pizza you are, on average, saving 40 calories. And provided that you’re not some grease chugging weirdo, those are calories you’re likely not going to miss.
Another sick LIFEHACK to make the pizza more healthy — and trust me, you’re going to love this one — is replace the crust with lettuce, the cheese with ripe tomatoes, and the sauce with a light balsamic vinaigrette. Boom. Now your pizza is healthy as fuck. You’re welcome.
