New Flatbread Pizza Idea!

My mom and I created a new flatbread pizza recipe.  I hope you like it!

Veggie Flatbread Pizza

Serves 2.  4 Weight Watchers Points per serving


1 Light Original Flatout Flatbread

3 Creamy Swiss Light Laughing Cow wedges

1/4 c Newman’s Own Mushroom Marinara (or your favorite cream-free marinara)

Veggies of your choice (We used mushrooms, onions, and bell peppers)

1/2 c Kraft 2% Mozzarella Shredded Cheese

Papa Murphy’s Herb & Cheese blend (or other garlic/cheese seasoning)

1 tsp. (or less) Olive Oil (or cooking spray)


Lightly saute the vegetables, just so that they will be cooked through when you bake the pizza.  Spread three wedges of Laughing Cow cheese over the entire flatbread.  Spread sauce over the entire flatbread.  Add the vegetables, then the cheese.  Lightly sprinkle with the herb and cheese blend (I said LIGHTLY.  Using too much of anything with cheese in it will add another point.  If you don’t want to add something with cheese, you can just use garlic or herbs).  Bake at 375 for 10 minutes on the oven rack for a crunchy crust.  Enjoy!

Let me know if you try your own pizza and what toppings you used!

Let’s go to the movies!

Happy Friday everyone! One of my favorite things about going to the movies has always been a big, buttery bucket of popcorn. The more butter, the better. Today, for the first time, my mom and I did not get a bucket of popcorn! We brought our own healthy snacks! It was kind of fun trying to choose what to bring. We chose Chicago Mix popcorn (semi-healthy anyway), apple slices, and Annie’s organic fruit snacks (in lieu of candy). I know they ask you not to bring your own snacks, but they don’t really give you any healthy choices. Popcorn with butter popped in oil, hot dogs, nachos, candy, soft pretzels, and pizza. Those are the options! Maybe one day, they will start offering something healthy. We can hope! What are the snacks you eat at the movies?



Hello everyone! Just wanted to share a quick tip for a low-point snack idea. I am really loving pickles right now. A lot of people just eat them on a sandwich, but they are a really good snack. You can choose dill pickles if you want something salty, or bread and butter pickles if you want something sweet/sour. You can eat them alone, with cheese or lunchmeat, or on a salad. Just make sure you are careful of the ingredients and any hidden sugar or sodium.

I have recently discovered these:


They are locally made, which brings me to another point. Whole Foods has a lot of local brands, which you should really check out. Sometimes they are a little more expensive, sometimes not. You can discover a lot of great new things and support local businesses!

I hope everyone is having a great week! I am feeling better…still working out the changes to my diet. I’ll get there! It is a process!

Let me know if you have any low-point snack suggestions!
