Recipe – Pita Pizza

pitapizzaHi y’all!

Today I am going to share on of my favorite recipes with you. And the best part? It’s super easy to make! I’m talking about pita pizza’s. I don’t know about you, but I sure love my pizza. But because I’m on the Weight Watchers program I know there are way too many points/ calories in it. No way I am eating a regular pizza any time soon! This pita pizza will stop your craving and you can make it as healthy/ unhealthy as you like.

What do you need?

  • Pita’s 
  • Tomato sauce (passata di pomodoro)
  • Cheese (I used grated cheese)
  • Herbs (dried or fresh, that’s up to you)
  • Any topping you prefer (I used mushrooms)

pitapizzapitacollageLike I said, this is super easy to make, but I made a step-by-step tutorial…. you know, just in case. So, first step: take out your favorite pita (I prefer biological and organic wholeweat pita’s from the reformstore but we were out of them) and put them on a baking sheet.

pitapizzatomatosaucecollagePut one tablespoon of tomato sauce (passata di pomodoro) on top of the pita. 1 tablespoon is more than enough. Don’t overdo it.

pitapizzacheesePut your favorite cheese on top of your pita. I used normal, grated cheese but you can opt for parmezan or mozzarella. I used a lot of cheese here, so the pic would look pretty, but if you are watching your diet I would use one tablespoon of grated cheese during this step.

pitapizzamushroomsNow, since we are being healthy, the right thing to do is to add some veggies and perhaps a little bit of protein (chicken, tuna, etc.). I used mushrooms today, but you can use whatever you want, just use your imagionation with this one. May I suggest onions, pineapple, tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant, bell peppers or perhaps a little bit of avocado?

pitapizzaextracheeseAdd around a tablespoon of extra cheese onto your topping. This is just to make it look pretty, you can skip this step if you want. Put it in the oven for around 10 minutes on 225 degrees Celcius (or 437 degrees fahrenheit).

Try to vary a little bit through out your weightloss journey and you have an amazing ‘low’ kcal snack/lunch that will suit your needs. If you don’t want to go overboard with your kcal, I would suggest to eat one pita pizza and fill the rest of your plate with cucumber and a little bit of fruit.

I calculated 9 propoints for my pita pizza.

Enjoy your meal or as we say in the Netherlands: ‘Eet smakelijk!’

Weight loss goals – May 2013

weightlossgoalsmay2013

Hi y’all,

I am a little late with this post but I guess Dewey’s Read-a-Thon is a pretty damn good excuse for that! Even though I slept a couple of hours during the Read-a-Thon, I’ve been exhausted throughout the entire week! I really needed a few days to re-energize and get back on track.

My weight loss journey started on June 13th 2012. I decided to lose the weight by using Weight Watchers. For a couple of weeks I could say that I’ve lost 23,1 kg but due to a few lazy weeks I’ve gained a little bit of the weight back. But, I’ve managed to lose some of it again and I now weigh 99,1 kg. Which means I’ve lost 21,9 kg in total! I am still proud of it, can’t help it.

But I need to refocus and lose weight every single week so I can reach my goal weight in a much quicker pace. I am going to study nutrition and dietetics in The Hague to become a dietitian. So, as you can understand I am under a little bit of stress. I don’t want to be the fat girl on the course. Even though I’ve lost so many pounds already, I don’t think I will be taken seriously if I am still obese. My goal is to weigh 85 kg or less on the 1st of September 2013, so let’s get to it!

Here’s my plan for May:

  • Weigh 96 kg or less on June 1st
  • Stick to the Weight Watchers program every single day of the month
  • Drink 1,5 liter of water every single day
  • Eat clean 15 days of the month
  • Go 10 days without Diet Coke or any other sugared drinks
  • Try out 5 new recipes
  • Meal prep twice this month (Weight Watchers Tagliatelle Bolognese and noodles with chicken, vegetables, soy sauce and ketjap)
  • Workout 16 times:

    What are your goals for this month? How are you keeping yourself accountable?
