I made the most awesome homemade pizza last night! Okay, I know…big deal, right? It’s a pizza (and it wasn’t even a homemade crust…). But let me tell you, it wasn’t so much that it tasted great (which it really really did…), what makes this the “pizza de resistance” is that one piece of pizza was just 115 calories! By example, a slice of cheese pizza at Pizza Hut weighs in at around twice that — so that made me very happy.
Now, I’m not trying to be the calorie police here, it’s just that I’ve been on this pretty strict “diet” of just 1200 calories a day — and I was running out of ways to make chicken interesting. I don’t eat fish–and I’m not into too many vegetables — so this whole calorie restriction thing has been a bit of a roller coaster ride for me. Not so much in keeping to it, but in finding things to eat that I actually like (that doesn’t cluck.).There’s more to life than chicken, surely?
Everyone is telling me that I’ve put my body into starvation mode, which is why I’m not losing weight, so I went on a mission yesterday to find something GOOD to eat! After a quick search, I found this pizza recipe and voila… a chicken-free dinner that didn’t taste like cardboard!
Here’s a few pics (and as an added bonus, I’m sharing my recipe find below).
Oh, and I might add: Feel free to post your favorite calorie-wise recipe in the comments. I beg you. Anything that doesn’t include seafood, mushroom, green pepper, kale, turnip, olives, eggplant, collard greens, avocado, peanut butter, granola bars…
