Pepperoni Pizza vs. Spaghetti and Meatballs
Viva Italian Night! What do you feel like? Two slices of Domino's medium hand-tossed pepperoni pizza (440 calories, 8 grams of saturated fat) or a half-portion of Olive Garden's spaghetti with meat sauce and two meatballs (460 calories, 7 grams of saturated fat)? In terms of fat and calories, they're pretty close, but Jibrin recommends the spaghetti as a slightly healthier option. "Processed meats like pepperoni usually contain nitrites, which studies have linked to cancer and coronary heart disease," says Jibrin (they also have tons of salt). The spaghetti has no processed meat and more "real" ingredients.
