Craving a slice of pizza, but don't have the time/patience to get yourself over to your local pizza joint and wait for a slice? Enter the pizza vending machine. Let's Pizza, a vending machine that creates pizzas from scratch in 2.5 minutes, is coming to the U.S.

The machine, which contains an infra-red oven, is distributed by A1 Concepts, and it's already a hit in Europe, especially Italy. "The machine contains a specially developed bag of flour and a bag of mineral water. Every time you order a pizza, the machine will start making the dough, then shape it into a crust, and top it with organic tomato sauce," A1 Concepts' CEO Ronald Rammers says.

And yes, toppings are available. "We have our own facilities where we produce the toppings and it is possible to create any kind of pizza -- meat, fish, vegetarian, any kind," he adds. The suggested retail price for [an approximate 10.5-inch] pizza is $5.95, which is more than a tasty New York City slice but not so bad for a 10.5-inch pie. Rammers says you'll find Let's Pizza at malls, airports, hospitals, restaurants, hotels, supermarkets, universities, gas stations, bus stations, etc. Would you give it a try?

    easy way for America to get fatter faster.
  • Blueskies hannah 2012/06/14 21:24:27
    Thats a world wide problem caused by eating far to many grains- Carbohydrates- in our diet.

    Stay away from anything made from wheat or or other grains, and sugar. Stay away from vegetable oils!
    Stay away from anything made with or from Corn!
    Eat 4 or 5 apples a day. Use olive oil. eat some vegetables
    Eat as much fish and meat as you want, fatty is ok.
    You won't be fat, and your Doctor will be puzzled at your excellent health.
  • Blueskies Blueskies 2012/06/14 21:28:16
    Just imagine what a bag of Frito's does to you....

    Corn is a great animal food, but it's one of our newest food plants and we are not adapted to deal with large amounts of carbohtydrates.
    The more corn we export, the fatter the world grows.
  • Mellow Blueskies 2012/06/14 21:46:31
    Corn is not even good for most animals. Cows, for instance, do not digest it well, it has actually been known to rot in their stomach and cause them infections. Then people eat that.
  • Blueskies Mellow 2012/06/15 00:12:07
    Really? I never knew that., corn fed beef used to be advertised as the best.
    Years ago I knew some ranchers who would add it to their horses feed as energy food.
    Our problem with corn (I have been told this ) is first its concentrated carbs, and second our bodies can't tell when we had enough carbs except by eating to our stomachs capacity. With meat, and fruit, when we have had all our body needs/wants, our appetite shuts down.
    But you can snack on chips all night.
  • Mellow Blueskies 2012/06/15 03:48:06
    You are right to a degree. I work at whole foods and they educate us on all types of diets and nutritional information. We pretty much have to know all this.

    Grass fed beef is better especially if you are trying to keep corn away from your diet. I hear it even tastes better.

    Your body can't tell if it has eaten enough of anything except to it's capacity. There are little receptors in there that allow you to know then you are full.

    Vegetables have like kale, collard greens, and swiss chard have the highest nutrients of all foods. they are bulky and take quite a bit of time to break down. Meats and dairy are the second lowest nutritional values. Complex carbohydrates are in the middle. Refined sugars and oils are the lowest.
  • Blueskies Mellow 2012/06/18 01:19:26
    Modern medical science now recognise the existence of "Hormones of Satiety" or fullness, which switch off our appetites when we have had enough, but they only work when we fat and protein, and not too much sugar,
    which blocks them.
    Pleasure, Not Fullness, May Be Key to 'Satiety Hormone'

    By Carl Sherman
    October 01, 2009
    The balance between our food intake and energy expenditure is driven in large part by leptin, a “satiety hormone” released by fat cells. When fat stores are hefty, increased leptin acts on the brain to bring eating to a halt

    Interesting. I get my fats from avocados, nuts and seeds.
  • Blueskies Mellow 2012/06/26 00:39:24
    That works. I cheat and just buy olive oil :).
  • Blueskies Mellow 2012/06/15 00:48:17
    Check the results of "Paleo Diet"

    Enjoy- :)
  • Mellow Blueskies 2012/06/15 03:50:36
    Like I said, that is a good diet for some body types, but not all.

    When I eat meat, I get terribly ill. It's not pretty.
  • Blueskies Mellow 2012/06/16 06:55:17
    Well, we are not all the same, thats how we evolve.
  • Mellow Blueskies 2012/06/16 06:58:50
    Veery true sir, very true.
  • Mellow Blueskies 2012/06/14 21:41:17 (edited)
    That only works for certain types, not all. Long time ago I followed a diet almost exactly like this and got super sick. I had hypertension like crazy. So I switched to a gluten free raw vegan diet. (B-12 coming from nutritional yeast.) My blood pressure has normalized, and I feel amazing. I have slowly been losing weight. This, however, may not work for you as bodies react differently to different diets. I agree with the corn thing though.
  • Blueskies Mellow 2012/06/14 23:50:45
    Interesting difference, since we may be related in some fashion (I'm Anglo Norman).
    I wonder if sex does play a part? You know, Women Are Vegans, and Men Are From Mars.. :)..
    I discovered my diet is called the "Paleo Diet" since it resembles human diet before agriculture.
    BTW I do eat oat meal in the morning, along with bananas blueberries, mango's, pears peaches .etc. I eat all I want and never go hungry (except I snack on apples not Fries lol) My weight has pegged to my ideal weight for size and never budges. BUT I have a persistent low level of hypertension, even with medication.
    Do you think the hyper tension was caused by a gluten reaction?
    Try working fresh apples into your daily diet, and before a workout. After a while you will notice a number of subtle benifits
  • Mellow Blueskies 2012/06/15 04:00:52
    Hypertension is often caused by high cholesterol. I would have that checked. If so, try to eat a little less meat and more veggies. Do you eat a lot of cheese? That also can be a culprit. Think of cheese as a seasoning or a garnish rather then an actual food.

    Natural oats contain no gluten, it only has it if processed with wheat, so I do not think it is that. Also try quinoa if gluten is a concern.
  • Blueskies Mellow 2012/06/16 07:04:32
    My blood is clean and cholesterol levels tests perfect, I may have a build up on my veins from bad old habits back in the day..
    Very good suggestions. The only dairy products I eat is vanilla ice cream sandwichs once in a while, my weakness :)..
  • Mellow Blueskies 2012/06/16 07:06:39
    Fair enough, still, watch that cholesterol intake.

  • Blueskies Claire ... 2012/06/14 21:36:22
    I always visulised America as a vast coin operated country of vending machines.
    You can wander around freely and buy every service, buy everything you need or desire by
    inserting the correct amount of coins.
    Just never run out of quarters.
