Two slices of deli ham, 1/4 cup pineapple tidbits, 1/2 cup non-fat mozzarella cheese, tomato paste and Italian seasonings made up this yummy pizza!
My pizza ended up coming in at 280 calories for the whole thing(<---Biz phrase that I shamelessly stole), which isn't bad! The flavors totally met my craving without going over the top, calorie- and fat-wise, and I liked how the Flatout crisped up in the oven. This is a nice way to incorporate pizza into your healthy-eating lifestyle, but it's definitely for thin-crust lovers only. Just for fun, I made the same pizza on a low-calorie, high-fiber wheat tortilla. It wasn't the same, not by a long shot! Although the tortilla got crispy, it did not taste nearly as good as the Flatout pizza. I'll save the tortillas for quesadillas and the like. One other observation: I used a Flatout to make a wrap sandwich for lunch...and I wasn't a big fan. Don't know if it's because I made it the night before so I could take it to work, but it was kind-of gummy. So I'll reserve the Flatouts for pizza and use Orowheat Sandwich Thins for my sandwiches. ingredients would be sweetened - I kind of understand things like jarred spaghetti sauce, because some people like their sauces sweet. But tomatoes? Color me surprised!
Next on my find list was Popchips! I bought a single serving bag - you get a lot of chips for 100 calories. I liked them! They were crisp and flavorful and make a great substitute for regular, or even baked, potato chips. Now, these will most likely not find their way into my diet very often, as they don't quite fit the "eat clean" bill, but if I were dying for some chips, I'd get these.
The last item that I tried was Hershey's Dark Chocolate Kisses. I am not a huge dark chocolate fan - I absolutely LOVE milk chocolate - but having a couple of Dove Dark Chocolate Promises every evening seems to fulfill any chocolate cravings that I have, without me going off the deep end and devouring the entire bag, like I *ahem* have been known to do with milk chocolate. So why did I buy Hershey's when I like Dove? Well, Dove Promises are about 40 calories each, while the Hershey's Kisses are only 20. And I, in my crazy-brain, thought "Hey...I can have four Kisses for the same amount of calories as two Promises!" But guess what? The Kisses are no Promises. They just don't compare. So after I tried four of them (I had to be sure!), I handed the bag over to my
