Posted March 18, 2020 11:03:16The United States has eaten a whopping 25 billion pounds of fruit pizzas this year, according a new report.
And the average American has only been eating about one slice a day for about two weeks, the Washington Post reported on Thursday.
But the average fruit pizza can cost upwards of $25 a piece, according the USDA.
That means the average pizza should be a bit of a bargain compared to other American-style fare.
“What you’re eating is not a meal,” Mark Bittman, director of the USDA’s Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion, told the Post.
“What you are eating is a snack.
The most expensive fruit pizza in the country is around $40.
You can eat a slice for about that.”
He also said fruit pies could also be a great way to get a quick fix on fruit.
“The way we eat fruit is to put the whole slice on top of each other.
It’s a little bit like a salad.
So if you have an apple slice, you can add a little of the salad,” he said.
Bittman also suggested eating the pie after eating some other fruits.
“If you have a piece of mango or a pineapple, it’s the same thing.
If you have two pieces of oranges, you could just put them on top,” he told the newspaper.
The Post noted that even the fruit-heavy food items like apples and bananas are not the most nutritious food.
“You’re eating fruit,” Bittmer said.
“You’re going to have the calories.”
He added that eating fruit does not need to be super high in calories, as the USDA estimates that the average serving of fruit pizza should not be as high as 25 to 35 calories per serving.
The USDA also said that the amount of fruit you eat should not vary much from year to year, since there are plenty of other foods that are equally nutritious.
“It’s all about what’s in the produce,” Bitterman said.
