100% Mozzarella Makes all the Difference

At Palio’s Pizza Cafe, we pride ourselves on using 100% real mozzarella cheese. It is just a part of the fresh ingredients we use in our Italian classics that gives them their wonderful taste. I bet you would be surprised to learn a few interesting facts about cheese.

Evidence of cheese being made dates back to 6000 BC. That’s a really really long time ago!

Studies have shown that the use of cow’s and goat’s milk to make cheese traces back to Mesopotamia.

Supposedly, Mozzarella was first made when cheese curds accidentally fell into hot water in a cheese factory outside of Naples.

There are over 2000 varieties of cheese in the world. Mozzarella is the favorite around the globe and the most consumed. Glad to know our love of this cheese is shared worldwide.

Cheese can be produced using a variety of milk, including cow, goat, buffalo, horse, and even camel. Umm… not sure we are adventurous enough to try it all.

Traditionally, mozzarella was made from buffalo milk (mozzarella di bufala) but most commercially available mozzarella today is made with cow’s milk.

Oh, and some cheeses have an added health bonus, they help prevent tooth decay! It does this by promoting the flow of saliva which eliminates sugar and acids from the mouth. Mozzarella is one of these cheeses – and people say pizza isn’t healthy!

Well, hopefully, you learned something new and can wow your friends with your impressive knowledge of cheese. At the very least, you will be prepared for a random cheese question on the new HQ App game! Come by Palio’s and enjoy one of our many pizzas made with 100% real mozzarella cheese! – Yummy!

Sticking to Your New Year’s Resolutions

Every year people across the globe make resolutions to workout, eat healthy and stick to a strict diet. Sadly, every year people across the globe fall short of meeting their goals.

 

We are dedicated to our customers because without you Palio’s wouldn’t be growing like we are today! So, in an attempt to give back a little, we have come up with a few suggestions that may help you stick to your resolutions for healthier living!

 

Let’s start with the workout.

No matter if you are just wanting to get back into the swing of things or if you’ve never been and are looking to start, pre-scheduling your gym time for the first 2 to 3 weeks will help! If you will pick the days and times you know you can make it to the gym and put them in your calendar for at least 2 weeks and then force yourself to commit to going, by the end of those initial 2 weeks, you will be WANTING to go to the gym! It is all about building that routine.

Do not try to push yourself too hard when you first start out. Maybe just dedicate 30 minutes to the gym. Split that time between cardio and light weights or machines. Don’t feel like you have to compete with the gym regulars who have muscle on top of muscle. Just remember, everyone in the room with you had to start somewhere. We have all been beginners!

 

Now for the dieting!

Eating healthy is great and fairly easy to do, so DON’T PANIC! It is when people try to implement extremely strict diets that are a complete departure from their normal eating habits that they end up giving up. Start by implementing more vegetables into your diet, limiting the sweets you eat, and cutting back on eating large portions in any one sitting.

Try implementing healthy snacks of small portions into your routine between breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Then when eating meals, try not to eat as much in any one of those times. It is all about balance; don’t deny yourself something you are craving, just don’t over-indulge in it. Cheat meals are completely okay. Just remember, you can have the unhealthy food, just try to be mindful of portion control! Never let yourself feel defeated for having a treat, though! Stick with it.

 

Palio’s has some great food options too that are perfect to fuel a workout and help you stick to your dieting goals. With amazing salads available, you can eat healthy and still have a flavorful meal. You can order one of our signature pizzas and treat yourself once a week and still not feel guilty about over-indulging!

 

We wish you nothing but continued success in 2018! Stop in and see your favorite staff at Palio’s, tag us in your progress pics on social, and remember we are cheering for you!

Palio’s Tips for Easing the Pain of Partying Too Hard on NYE!

Everyone loves to celebrate on NYE but few enjoy the pain that comes with a New Year’s Day hangover! We understand this dilemma, which is why we have put together a few tips for curing or at least easing the pain of your hangover!

If you just remember the 3 P’s, you can help make your day much more tolerable!

 

Palio’s

That’s right, food is key! We know you may not feel like eating much, but getting something heavy in your stomach is an important step to making you feel better. We recommend our Meat & Cheese Deluxe! Eat a bit, get some more rest, and then finish it off. Once you have some food in you, you will be more up for tackling the day!

Pickle Juice

So it sounds a little weird, we know! But pickle juice has a lot of electrolytes in it which will help you recover from the dehydration that is causing your pain and cramps from the hangover. TV’s Dr. Oz swears by this remedy. He recommends drinking a ¼ cup of pickle juice first thing in the morning when you wake up after a night of drinking too much.

Pedialyte

If drinking pickle juice turns your stomach, another great way to replenish those electrolytes is found in the kid’s aisle at your local drug store, Pedialyte. Pedialyte is like a supercharged version of Gatorade without all the sugars. In our experience, a glass of this in the morning really helps to stop the headache and the soreness you feel in your body.

 

While there are a ton of tips and tricks to follow to help ease your hangover, we have found that these 3 offer us the most support. Of course, rest is also needed, which is why Palio’s delivery is perfect! You can have your pizza or pasta delivered and never leave the comfort of your home!

We hope all of our customers have amazing New Year’s Eve celebrations and that 2018 brings you nothing but happiness! Remember, if you are planning to celebrate the ball drop, please do so responsibly. If you are drinking, do not drive! Take advantage of one of the many ride-share services!

Tackle Black Friday Shopping Like a Pro!

Thanksgiving means spending time with family and friends, reflecting on all the blessings in your life, and getting ready for BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPING! At Palio’s, we care about our customers, so we have taken the time to come up with a list of a few tips and tricks to help you make the most out of your Black Friday experience!

 

Make a Plan of Attack

The first thing you need to do is check the ads and figure out what stores are your priority. Depending on what you are shopping for will determine how early you need to be there and the type of crowd to expect. Check circulars, websites, social media pages, and pay attention to the commercials to see what types of deals are out there!

 

Once you know what stores you want to hit up, route your day out. Determine what the best order is to visit the locations and save yourself from driving all over the place. Some stores will open early or stay open late to accommodate the crowds. If you are concerned with the items you want selling out, it is best to hit the stores that carry those particular items first.

 

Stay Organized

Staying organized is key when it comes to Black Friday shopping. On a day where chaos overtakes most department stores, it is important that you keep on top of everything you have and want. It is best to make a list of items and where to find them before you begin. It is very easy to check things off as you purchase them. This will help you make sure you do not forget anything.

 

Carry Snacks

On a day where you will be pushing through crowds and standing in long lines, it is smart to have a snack on hand. To help you keep your energy up and from fatigue getting the best of you, a snack will come in handy.

 

Be Kind

As annoying as dealing with crowds may be, we all benefit from being kind to one another. Try not to let frustration get the best of you and cause you to take your anger out on those around you. While getting the best deal on a product is nice, it is not worth losing your self-respect over.

 

Fuel Up at Palio’s

Black Friday shopping is a big undertaking, make sure you stay fueled up! We are talking about both your vehicle and your body on this one. Make sure you get gas for your car before you begin driving around to the different sales. Also, stop by Palio’s for lunch to make sure you have plenty of energy to handle even the biggest of crowds. One of our pizzas will be sure to hit the spot!
