Now that I have a bit more calories to play with, homemade pizza has become a weekly staple. We use store bought dough to save some time, then top it with fresh mozz and veggies. It's a great fridge-cleaner recipe!
My bf and I have different tastes, so we divide the dough and make our own pizzas. Last night I topped mine with onions, diced ham, and a plum. De-lish!
2 cups any frozen fruit 1 banana a little bit of liquid (we use light coconut milk or almond milk)
Put all 3 in a food processor. Work with it until it has a consistency kind of like soft serve ice cream. It makes 2 servings. Not sure of the calories, but it is pretty good. Sometimes I put some light cool whip on top.
I also find tomatoes to be an easy, quick thing to have on hand. I love braised eggs in tomatoes...
1 can crushed fire roasted tomatoes 1 onion 3 cloves garlic 4 eggs
saute eggs and garlic in a little olive oil cooking spray. When onion is soft, pour can of tomatoes over top and season as desired (I use Italian seasoning, a pinch of crushed red pepper, and a little salt.) Crack the eggs into the simmering tomato sauce and cover 6-8 minutes (for medium-set eggs.) This is awesome with a high fiber, whole grain bread or a half cup of cottage cheese.
Sorry, don't know the calories offhand...depends on the bread you eat with it, the seasonings you choose and the size of the can of tomatoes. I use Muir Glen Organic Fire Roasted, which is 3 cups tomatoes.
Do you have go to recipes for maintenance? One of my favourites is slow roasted tomato soup. It takes a bit of time, but it's super easy:
1 28 oz can whole tomatoes 1 cup vegetable soup stock 1/2 tsp italian seasoning salt and pepper to taste 1 tbsp brown sugar cooking spray
Remove tomatoes from can, reserving liquid. Cut tomatoes in half and arrange on a baking sheet lined with parchment or foil. If using foil, spray with non-stick spray first. Spray tomatoes with cooking spray and sprinkle with italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and sugar. Bake for 40 minutes at 300 degrees. Remove from oven and let cool for ten minutes. Combine vegetable stock and tomato juice. Add tomatoes and puree in blender or food processor. Heat and serve! Alternately, refrigerate for 24 hrs before heating and serving to let flavors mingle.
