Last Saturday was “cheat day” for Chuck and I — a day when we get to throw caution to the wind and indulge in foods we normally wouldn’t on our new healthy eating plan. So … what did we do, you ask with bated breath?
We stuck to our healthy eating routine. Yep, while my family chowed down on salad and pizza from Imo’s, I whipped up a healthy, hearty Mexican pizza for Chuck and I, which I’ve dubbed:
“It Can’t Get Much Easier Than This” Mexican Pizza
1 Fabulous Flats multi-grain, stone-baked pizza crust [We purchased ours from Whole Foods.]
1/2 cup refried black beans
2 chicken chorizo links [We purchased this from the meat counter at Whole Foods.]
1/4 cup chopped jalapenos
1/4 cup salsa
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. Saute the chicken chorizo links in a small saute pan until cooked through.
3. Top the pizza crust with the black beans, chicken chorizo, jalapenos, salsa, and cheese.
4. Bake for 20 minutes.
Told ya … it can’t get much easier than that. The pizza was very tasty and very filling; we cut it into four large pieces, and one was plenty … it left me full and satisfied. And each piece has only 9 Weight Watchers points, which left me room for an evening snack.
Hmm … I thought it was supposed to be a lot harder to change one’s behaviour?
