E2 28 Day Challenge - Day 8

by Rachel

I have always been kind of afraid of pizza with no cheese... it just doesn't seem right! But the pizza we had today was so stuffed with veggies that it totally and completely made up for it!
We went to the store lastnight and saw a frozen pizza with no cheese - the veggies were SO sparse it's no wonder I never wanted to eat it!

Day 8

1791 cals (269g carbs, 56g fat, 73g protein, 52g fiber)

Rip’s Big Bowl

Tried raspberries and almonds this time instead of blueberries and walnuts - I think I like the walnuts better in this mix, but either fruit is yum!
Made some for the kids this time too - Paul says they liked it, but they needed some honey added to the mix :)

E2 Stuffed Pita with Cannellini Dip

Lunch was pita using cannellini dip - which I have never had! It's actually really low-cal - a 1/4 cup is only around 60 cals! - but I had a garlic-y aftertaste in my mouth for HOURS after lunch. Not sure what to do about that - I only added one clove of garlic. Maybe just use garlic powder instead?

Baby Field Greens Salad & Supreme Pizza

Pizza was AWESOME! We couldn't find the crust that E2 was talking about, so instead used Trader Joe's Middle Eastern Flatbread - turned out to be an excellent choice! We both had two pizzas, and the kids both had pizzas too (although theirs involved chicken nuggets and parmesan sauce, sans onions/mushrooms). Salad was just greens with olives, topped with a lite vinagrette that I made.

Frozen Blackberries with Soy Yogurt

REALLY liking the soy yogurt - and how many things I can use it for! Plain has always been something to shy away from for me, but I'm learning that it's great because of all you can add TO it!
