Last week, I told y’all that I bought some new cauliflower-based products. This weekend, I decided to try out another one: Green Giant’s cauliflower pizza crust!

I wanted to see if I could make a pizza with simple ingredients and make it low-carb-friendly as well as have it actually taste good. Here’s what I used:

~Green Giant Cauliflower Pizza Crust

~1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

~1 tsp Italian seasoning

~1/2 tsp minced garlic

~1/4 tsp Kosher salt

~1 cup fresh spinach, chopped

~3/4 cup fat free mozzarella cheese

~4 ounces grilled chicken

 

I mixed the spices and oil first and then spread it onto the pizza crust. I popped that in the oven for a few minutes and then took the crust back out, per the instructions on the box. Then, I added the spinach, cheese, and chicken on the crust and put the pizza back in the oven for about 10 minutes. After that, the pizza was ready!

I think it turned out pretty good! The part of the crust that didn’t have any toppings on it was very “cauliflower-y”-tasting, but other than that, I liked this! I will definitely be trying this again!

Last week, a friend of mine posted a picture of some new products she found at the grocery store. They were a part of the new riced cauliflower line from Green Giant! Intrigued, I bought one of the products to try–the riced cauliflower stuffing!

Stuffing-2

 

This healthy version of the Thanksgiving staple is packed with cauliflower, carrots, celery, cranberries, and tasty herbs and spices! Its super easy to cook (and by “cook” I mean pop the bag in the microwave for like, 5 minutes) and its done!

We had ours on the side of Keto chicken and asparagus! It was actually pretty good! I mean, I don’t think it will completely take the place of stuffing, but it was nice to have a healthier alternative!

I’ve been trying to slim down before our big trip to Disney World this November and I gotta tell ya, its been ROUGH. I’m not one of those people that “forgets to eat” or when they’re stressed, stops eating. I’m the complete opposite. My day is basically distracting myself until its time to eat again and/or shotgunning hidden chocolate because my kids are driving me batty.

Because of this, I’ve been looking for healthy/healthier treats to help me feel like I’m indulging without completely derailing my day.  When I was grocery shopping the other day I came across these:

These cups are filled with apples, oatmeal, and chia seeds! There are also other flavors including pear and maple and peach cinnamon spice. The box says you can enjoy them hot or cold, but I decided it would be nice to have a warm dessert! I popped it in the microwave for 45 seconds and voila!

The first bite I took wasn’t that great. In fact, I *almost* threw it away. But then I stirred it up and plopped a tablespoon of fat free whipped cream on top and it was AMAZING! Now, I will say that this isn’t the *healthiest* of treats–there’s quite a bit of sugar in it and there’s not a ton of protein. BUT, if you’d like to have this rather than a hot fudge sundae, its definitely the healthier of the two!

Finding yummy desserts that not only satisfy your sweet tooth but also help you stay on track are pretty hard to find. The other day I was on a mission to find something that would take the chocolate cravings away and not tip my calorie count over the edge. Dole Dippers came to the rescue!

Dole has a line of chocolate-covered fruit available in the freezer section! Yes, I know I could probably make these at home for a lot less than what I paid but who has that kind of time?! Certainly not this woman! Anywho, I grabbed a box of the dark chocolate covered banana slices and they were AMAZING!

IMG_1038

Each box comes with 6 packs of 4 banana slices covered in dark chocolate. This is exactly what I was looking for! Its delicious, its only 100 calories per pack, and hello–its CHOCOLATE.

Eating healthy on-the-go can sometimes be very frustrating and overwhelming: “What should I eat? Where can I get something that tastes good and has good-for-me stuff? What can I eat one-handed because I know I’ll be multitasking while I eat!”

I can answer all of those questions with today’s Try It!

This little packet is full of organic, good-for-you stuff and you can totally eat it one-handed AND its available at Walmart! Plus, its REALLY tasty!

Here’s the stats on this snack:

momma chia

This specific packet has organic strawberry, banana, and beet puree along with chia seeds (which give that kick of Omega-3s)! I ate this as I was driving around with the kids the other day and it was incredibly satisfying and super yummy! I bought a few more to keep on hand!

The name of the product may look a little familiar; I’ve tried a Good Belly drink before. This one is a little bit different, and no just because of its size! This little liquid packs a punch! Inside are tons of little probiotics and vitamins! This small shot has your daily recommended amounts of: Vitamin C, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, and Biotin! Not only that but its got Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Calcium, and Thiamin!

At 50 calories, the Plus Shot has you covered without being a calorie hog and its tasty, too! That’s something to smile about!

favorite are the nacho cheese https://www.questnutrition.com/collections/quest-chips/products/nacho-cheese-tortilla-style-protein-chips

Trying to eat healthy and lose weight can be such a drag sometimes. You can only eat kale and chia seeds for so long, am I right? And when you’re trying to up your protein intake but want something that’s NOT jerky? Ugh, fuggetaboutit. Thankfully, I found something yummy that will also help me hit my protein goals!

Oh yes, those are PROTEIN chips! Quest Nutrition actually has FIVE different flavors! I’ve tried three so far: cheddar & sour cream, BBQ, and nacho cheese! Just take a look at these stats:

I paired mine with a Chick-Fil-A Chicken Club sandwich (sans bun) and it was the PERFECT meal!

Out of the three flavors I have tried, the nacho cheese are my favorite, but that’s because they tasted fairly close to Doritos!
