cauliflower dough pizza
servings: 8 (1 slice), calories: dough on it’s own is around 55 calories per serve, with sauce it is about 60 calories per serve and the rest depends on toppings.
i added ham on half of mine cause my boyfriend isn’t vegetarian :3.
ingredients:
cauliflower dough:1 cup of riced (or mushed) cauliflower1 cup of low fat mozzarella cheese1 eggsome oreganosome parsleysome basil
sauce:1 can of whole tomatoes1 tsp of italian herbs
topping:whatever vegetables you like and meat if you want it (though a lot less calories without it) personally i had spinach, capscicum, onion, shallots, mushrooms and 1 sliced tomato and a little bit of cheese on top.
directions:
preheat the oven to approx 230C (450F).
boil the cauliflower until soft enough to mash. once soft drain and put in a bowl and then either mash or grate (i mashed it).
add the cup of cheese and the egg and either put it through a processor, just mix it with a spoon or use a beater/chopper on it. i used a chopping/beater cause the processor didn’t work ^^ it just means it will be a lot smoother and not have chunks of cheese in it.
cover an oven pan with baking paper and smooth the cauliflower dough into a pizza shape, sprinkle with some organo, parsley, and basil and place in the oven for approximately 15 minutes.
while the dough is in the oven cut up your vegetables for the top. open the can of tomatos and drain it with a strainer so you only have the whole tomatoes left. put these tomatoes through a blender/processer/or chop until small enough to make into a sauce.
heat the sauce in a small sauceman over low heat and add some italian herbs and a small amount of corn flour to thicken, bring to the boil.
once the dough is ready remove, and spread the sauce over it. add your chopped up vegetables and a little bit of the low fat mozzarella cheese on top. put back into the oven until the cheese is melted and serve!

make your own subs

i love subway the same as everybody else but it worries/confuses me that a sub roll with just vegetables, cheese, and dressing can equal over 300 calories D:
so, for my lunch today, i made my own!

ingredients:

half of a sub roll (wheat or white) (about 100 calories when halved)
low fat sliced cheese (only use one slice) (only about 20 or so calories)
fillings (lettuce, tomato, onion, mushrooms are my favourites)
topping (only choose low fat caesar or mayonnaise instead of the full fat stuff)

just heat the bun with the cheese on it in the microwave for 30 seconds or so and fill it up. it’s yummy, cheap, and should (unless you use more fattening toppings or cheese) have only 150 or under calories in it.

quick and easy snack - grilled pineapple
there are heaps good for a quick snack, as a side, or maybe as a topping for something like a ham steak (dad used to do this all the time for me, ham steak is approx 85-100 calories).
calories: approximately 30 calories per pineapple slice.
ingredients:
canned sliced pineapples or just a plain pineapple cut into slicesyou’ll need a grilled (i own a george foreman grill so i’ll use that)
directions:
take out as many slices as you’d like to eat or for other people.
simply put it under the grill until it’s nicely grilled and slightly crispy.
enjoy! this is a perfect way to spice up fruit and sometimes you just crave something warm instead of a cold snack especially during winter!
