A warning from King James: “don’t order while starving.”
We’ve all had those moments where our eyes were bigger than our stomachs, resulting in a takeout order that renders us immobile in a pile of regret and self-loathing. When you burn calories like LeBron James, though, it’s a little more excusable. The NBA superstar recently posted a receipt from his pizza delivery order to Facebook, which consisted of a pie stacked with 16 different toppings and a warning from James: “don’t order while STARVING.”
He did, however, tack on a simple arugula salad with seasonal fruit — which he pointed out with the hashtag “#AddedThatSaladThough.” (We would be remiss to not acknowledge that he also added that S’mores Pie, but we are in no position to body shame.)
Despite the laundry list of ingredients, the pizza — which came from Blaze Pizza, a chain that James is an investor in — actually looks pretty healthy. He’s really just using the pie as a (cheesy, doughy) vehicle for lean proteins like grilled chicken and turkey meatballs and tons of veggies and herbs.
Whether or not those flavors all work together is a different story, but hey, if it works for an NBA championship winner, it works for us. Also, we may be burying the lede here, because $7.95 for all that? Just goes to show that without additional topping fees, there is no limit to what we can achieve as a nation.
