What’s For Dinner?
Lee's Favorite Pizza
(First star is lowest, fourth star is highest)
Atlanta running coach Lee Fidler would rather spend his spare time pounding the pavement than heating up the kitchen, but an athlete has to eat. This is one of his favorite carb-rich, energy-boosting meals that’s quick to prepare and tasty. The vegetable toppings add vitamins A and C, and the cheese adds the calcium equivalent of about a 1/2 cup of milk. To lower fat and cholesterol, use a reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese.
