I have a confession to make – I need to put down the CARBS!!!!!! I am such a lover of any type of bread, potatoes (any way you can imagine) and oh my cheese grits!!!!! Just pure evil for those who are ab conscious!!
I wish there was a way to just click my heels and the fat around my middle would just melt. Ok, back to reality! I am determined to start in my KITCHEN to help the FAT disappear!!!! I am really PUMPED!!!!
On my weekly trip to the supermarket I decided to be a little creative with selecting a quick meal for myself. I decided to use a whole wheat pita(I convinced myself this was better than the white pita) to create a meal that was not half bad.
Honestly, it is a great meal for either lunch or dinner. Today it hit the spot after my weight training and cardio workout! I still get my carbohydrate but with a whole wheat pita instead of white flour pizza dough. I only buy marinara sauce because there is no high fructose corn syrup.
1Whole Wheat Pita
1/4 cup of marinara sauce
1/2 tsp of EVOO
1/4 cup of baby spinach
1/4 tsp of garlic (dependent on your preference)
1/4 cup of mozzarella cheese
1 plum tomato, sliced
Preheat broiler. Saute the spinach in olive oil and add garlic for about 3 minutes. Add the marinara sauce to whole wheat pita. Next add the sautéed spinach, top with mozzarella cheese and sliced tomato. Bake for 3-5 minutes until cheese melts. (Keep a close eye on it to avoid burning) Add a dash of parmesan cheese and enjoy!
I am a fan of spinach but feel free to use your favorite green veggies!!!! This is also a great meal for kids and they can help out with adding their favorite toppings.
