Happy Wednesday!! Dang, isn’t this week flying by? It kind of feels like this whole Summer has been doing the same. I mean, it is already July 16th! Where is the time going?
This morning I wanted to share a couple healthier recipes that I really enjoy (thanks to Casey for the inspiration!). Maybe you can try these before the Summer ends? If you do you will have to let me know how they tasted!
This first fun recipe is one that I kind of made up last night. Pita Pizza! I have definitely heard of people doing this but had never tried it myself. Buutt, last night I was really craving some saucey goodness and this popped into my brain to try! Doesn’t it look good?
What you need:
A pita loaf
Any topping you desire! I chose… motzerella cheese, tomato, and green pepper
What you do: All you have to do is set your pita loaf on a baking sheet, spread your sauce on the pita, sprinkle cheese and add toppings. While I built my pizza I had the oven on low broil. After my pizza was all ready to go I put it in the oven and waited about 5 minutes. You will have to experiment with time depending on how crunchy or soft you like your crust. I think this is a must try! Especially if you have kids, it might be really fun for them to make their own dinner. Another great thing about this recipe is that you can eat the whole thing at very low calorie cost. I believe my version was around 180 calories… (pita was 60, sauce was 40, cheese was 80-100… I don’t count veggies because I don’t think they should be counted against me, ha!) insanely awesome!
Next we have the Sammie Shake with a Molly twist. 😉 This is called the Sammie Shake because my oldest sister Sam “made it up.” I have kind of made it my own since learning how she makes hers, so I will share my recipe.
What you need:
1 cup plain non-fat yogurt OR 1 cup organic french vanilla yogurt (Stoneyfield)
1/2 cup frozen fruit.. (I do strawberries or banana)
Honey to taste (if using plain non fat yogurt)
Splash of milk
Two ice cubes
What you do: First off, it is really helpful if you have one of those blenders that blends right in the cup. I have a cheaper one and it works great! So, I take my cup and put 1/2 a cup of yougurt in right away. I recently began using the Stoneyfield organic french vanilla because it tastes good and cuts out the extra sugar from the honey you might have to use if you choose plain non-fat yogurt. I then add 1/2 a cup of whole frozen strawberries and cover that with the other 1/2 cup of yogurt. Throw in a splash of milk, two ice cubes and blend away! If you do choose to use the plain non-fat yougurt, you should add some honey to sweeten it up.. I do not reccommend adding honey with the french vanilla yogurt because it gets realllly sweet! But… my version, which is the french vanilla yogurt way, comes in right around 223 calories. It fills you up and tastes great!
So there you have it. Two recipes for you to try if you would like!
Thanks so much for reading!!
