This has been a huge day of treats for me. Finals are approaching fast and caffeine is calling my name (usually from the coffee pot) very loudly. Today, or tonight rather, I decided to multitask with my coffee and combine it with dessert.


Of course since I indulged, my son wanted to as well, but with pizza instead of dessert.


What a funny looking pizza you might say, and you’d be correct! It isn’t as unhealthy as it first appears. Notice the whole wheat crust (shaped like goldfish), which has an abundance of fiber for my little man’s regularity. He actually consumes quite a bit of fiber on a regular basis and although I don’t focus on increasing his fiber intake I do make sure he eats whole grains. This pizza also contains reduced fat cheese and turkey pepperoni. This proves that you can make any dish a little healthier while still tasting wonderful.

Another one of my dishes that I have altered…nachos!

Chips can add calories quickly, but make sure and add vegetables to help fill you up. I love spinach and will add it to almost anything! (spaghetti, smoothies, omelets, you name it) I’ve added it here along with black beans, brown rice, and reduced fat cheese. It was delicious and I don’t feel deprived because I’m able to enjoy my favorite foods in moderation. After all, moderation is key to a healthy life!
