This lunch-sized personal pizza is made using Joseph’s Pita Bread. The inspiration for this came from a recipe posted by My Bizzy Kitchen, except she used her skinny pizza dough to make it. I adapted the recipe she posted just a bit to create a lunch-sized pizza that was quick, easy, and fit my allotted point budget for lunch perfectly. I make this in under 15-minutes and have a hearty salad alongside for a perfect lunch.

Author: Lisa

Ingredients

  • 1 Joseph's Pita Bread
  • 1 wedge Laughing Cow Light Spreadable Cheese (I used the smoky bacon flavor)
  • 1 tbsp whipped cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp nonfat Greek yogurt (I used Fage)
  • Pinch *Farm Dust Seasoning
  • Pinch garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp jalapeno peppers, sliced (optional)
  • 20 g reduced-fat sharp cheddar, shredded (I used Cracker Barrel 2%)
  • 1 tsp real bacon bits (I used Hormel™)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven or toaster oven to 450°
  • Mix the laughing cow cheese, yogurt, and cream cheese together and spread the mixture onto the pita.
  • Top with jalapenos, bacon bits, and the shredded cheese.
  • Bake for 7-10 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and melted. I like my cheese just starting to brown, so be sure to keep an eye on it.

Notes

*Farm Dust Seasoning is my favorite seasoning salt. I found it at a local country store, and honestly thought it was a local thing, turns out it's not. You can get it on here on Amazon or just use your favorite seasoning salt.

My daughter asked me to get her chicken McNuggets while I was out today. 

Can I just say, going through the drive-thru when you're hungry is hard. But I haven't had McDonald's (other than an Egg McMuffin a time or two) since 2019. And I wasn't going to start today...although I do plan to try the strawberry shortcake McFlurry before it's gone! But that's another post!

I decided to ask for a few extra sauces (my favorite is Hot Mustard) and came home to make my own copycat nuggets.

I wish I could take the credit for this piece of culinary genius, but I found the recipe while scrolling Instagram--it was a reel, so I'm not sure who it was!

Copy Cat  Chicken McNuggets
Serves 1 (12 nuggets) 
4 WW Points 
443 Calories 

12.5 oz can Kirkland Canned Chicken, drained
1 egg
65 grams 75% Reduced Fat Cabot Cheddar
1 tbsp grated parmesan 
Seasoning of your choice, I used some spicy ranch seasoning.
Avocado Oil cooking spray 

Preheat oven or airfryer to 400.

1. Mix all ingredients well, shape into nuggets (I got 12 out of this), place on pan spritzed with avocado oil cooking spray, then give them another quick spritz.

2. Air fry or bake 25 min or until golden and crispy, turning them over halfway through. I use the air fry function on my Ninja XL oven. 

I enjoyed these with my favorite McDonald's nugget sauce!

As a side note, the point/nutritional values will be different depending on the cheese you use.

I stumbled across an old journal entry from late 2020. And boy did I need the reminder.

I thought I'd share just in case any of you needed a reminder too:

"Transformation is a process. It takes time, and patience. Sometimes you're gonna hit it on all cylinders, and sometimes you're gonna struggle. In either case the requirement is to show up, and do the best that you can."
(December 13, 2020)

Don't ever underestimate your own wisdom, because most times the only expert you need is looking back at you in the mirror.

I had a bad hair day.. 

I was letting my hair grow because, for like a minute I was loving it long--and then yesterday on a whim I decided that I didn't. 

I sent a quick text to @nikitajohns, the best hairstylist ever, and a few hours later my hair was four inches shorter, my bad hair day was over, and I was ready for spring!

The moral of the story is: making a change doesn't require over thinking--just do it!

My eyes have been bothering me off and on for a few days, I figured it was just a Sjogrens flare, until this morning when I woke up with sore, red, goopy eyes.

So I scheduled a quick video visit with my doctor...
and the winner is:

Bacterial Conjunctivitis (aka) Pink Eye!!

I'm getting some antibiotic drops, but spam me with your best home remedies to soothe sore, achey eyes 👀!

Happy Sunday! 

I don't know about you, but this spring ahead thing has got me all messed up!

I mean, I know it's only an hour but man I feel like I missed half the day!!! 😳

I will not be live on Facebook this evening as I'm getting ready for a quick trip tomorrow and Tuesday. BUT, I still wanted to share the recipe I talked about last week. It's one of my faves and it comes together quickly!!

I especially love fennel and apples together, but it is equally delicious without the fennel. If you skip the fennel (which I do not recommend) just add an additional cup of broccoli slaw mix.

Apple Crunch Slaw
6 servings 
1sp 
75 calories 

3 c broccoli slaw
1 c fennel sliced thin
2 apples julienned, shredded, or chopped
2 tsp Fruit Fresh (sprinkled on apples to keep them from browning)
DRESSING
1/2 c nonfat greek yogurt 
2 tbsp Light mayo
1 tbsp dijon mustard 
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
3 packets Truvia Sweetener 
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp celery seed

Toss slaw and fennel together. Sprinkle apples with fruit fresh and toss together, add to slaw mix. Whisk all dressing ingredients until smooth and uniform, pour over slaw and toss well until coated. #myww #weightlossjourney #wwcommunity #bigfatskinnysalads #eatmoresalad

Happy FriYaY-Weigh! So far this month my weight has not budged--I've been maintaining, which is (arguably) good, but my goal is to lose. 

And there it is,  my weekly struggle between gratitude and disappointment.

With that said, I choose gratitude. These two pictures are almost four years apart. I've come an incredibly long way, and am proud of all that I've overcome.

I am well aware of the work that is yet to be done, but for today, I am choosing to celebrate where I am right now and the strength and courage it took to get here.

What wins are you celebrating today?

Taking care of others can be both challenging, and exhausting.

Which is why making my own care a priority is  absolutely essential. You know, the put your own mask on first thing...and I wasn't very good at it for more years than I can count.

I have always been a supplement skeptic, but have since learned that (much like in life), sometimes a little bit of support goes a really long way.

In addition to eating well, moving, tracking, drinking my daily water, and getting plenty of sleep, I take supplements for:

👉 Hormone and Mood Support
👉 Stress and Weight Management Support
👉 Gut Health Support
👉 Inflammation and Autoimmune Support 

While I know that taking a few supplements will not solve all my health issues, or make me magically thinner, I do know what a difference they have made for me on my health journey.
