“HEALTHIEST PIZZA IN THE WORLD” RECIPE
So I was fooling around in my kitchen the other day and actually made something quite divine. I was able to figure out a way to make pizza with all Blogilates-approved ingredients. That’s right. There was no mozzarella cheese, no oil, no bread. It was low cal, low carb, and highly nutritious. “What!?” you say?
It was totally LEGIT.
“HEALTHIEST PIZZA IN THE WORLD” CRUST INGREDIENTS:
- 1/4 cup dry oats
- 1 TBS ground flax seed
- 1 egg
“HEALTHIEST PIZZA IN THE WORLD” TOPPINGS
- 4 TBS marinara or spaghetti sauce
- 1/2 cup nonfat/lowfat cottage cheese
- sprinkles of frozen spinach
- 1/2 cup chopped tomato
- several pieces of jalapeno
- any other veggie or lean protein you want to add - mushrooms, onions, olives and chicken breast are all great choices
1. In a tin pan, mix up the oats, egg, and flax seed until it covers the bottom of a tin pan. I used a pie tin pan. No oil required! Place in oven at 350F for about 15-20 min until firm.
2. In the mean time, microwave the frozen spinach. Once thawed, pour out excess water and pat dry with paper towel.
3. Also, squeeze the cottage cheese curds with a cheese cloth or a few layers of paper towel. You want to get all of the water out so that it doesn’t make you pizza soggified.
4. Chop your desired veggies.
5. Once crust is firm, take the crust out of the oven. Slather with tomato sauce.
6. Then pile on the cottage cheese and veggies!
7. Place back in oven for about 15-20 min keeping temp at 350F. You can do 375F if you like your crust crispy.
8. Once your ticker dings, take out, slice and enjoy. YOU CAN DEFINITELY EAT THE WHOLE THING :)
About 300 calories for you own whole pizza pie…nearly 30g of protein and 8g of fiber. WOW is right. You need to try this! It’s one of my best creations to date!!!
Reblog and share the joy of clean eating! Seriously guys, this is phenomenal!!!
The kind of lollipops I eat.
Reader Recipe: Carrot Cake
- *400 g of carrots (finely grated)
- *6 eggs (separate egg whites from yolks)
- *200 g sugar
- *1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
- *250 g ground almonds
- *80 g whole wheat flour
- *1 teaspoon baking powder
- *1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- *1 tablespoon rum
- *zest of 1 lemon
1. Beat the egg-whites until stiff. Then mix in 75 grams of the sugar until the egg-whites are completely stiff and glossy.
2. In another bowl beat the egg yolks with the remaining 125 grams of sugar until creamy. Add the rum, the lemon zest, the cinnamon and 4 tablespoons of hot water and keep beating for about 2-3 minutes.
3. In yet another bowl mix the flour with the almonds and the baking powder.
4. Now gently fold the egg-whites into the yolk-mix, then fold in the carrots and then the flour-mix. Put everything in a big spring form and put it in the pre-heated oven on the hot fan setting at 160 °C (320 F) for about 50 minutes.
5. After letting it completely cool, turn out the cake and decorate with a bit of icing.
“At 12 pieces you end up having about 290 calories per piece. Acceptable (cake-wise) in my opinion. ;)” says Clara.
Need ideas for icing? Here’s a “fitness frosting” recipe for those of you that can’t expend the calories for icing:
- *6 or 8 oz. container of vanilla or plain Greek yogurt
- *½ cup of confectioner’s sugar
- *1 tsp of vanilla extract, almond or rum extract for extra sweetness.
- *Allow to thicken in the refrigerator for 30 to 60 minutes before spreading on cake or cupcakes.
- *Keep frosted cake out of sunlight or heat, as this frosting easily melts.

Don’t be fooled…that bowl of “oatmeal” has as much protein as a scoop of protein powder.
I was so excited to try my TVP (textured vegetable protein) as “oatmeal” this morning. What a great way to cut down carbs and up that protein intake for bfast while still enjoying a bowl of warm goodness.
Here’s what I did for this bowl…
-1 ripe banana
-1 TBS steel cut oats (rolled or instant ok too)
-1/2 cup TVP
-Dash of cinnamon
-Water or skim milk, almond milk, soy milk etc.
1. Mix the dry oats and TVP in a bowl and add enough water/milk to generously cover the surface of the ingredients.
2. Place in microwave for 3 minutes if using steel cut oats, less if using rolled or instant.
3. Take out, stir. If you like it mushy add more liquid and reheat.
4. Peel a ripe banana and place right in the bowl. Heat for 1:30 to 2 minutes.
5. Take a spoon and slice the banana into coins. Should be very easy!
6. Stir it all up! Add a dash of cinnamon! If you need more sweetness you can add some brown sugar or dried berries, but I think a ripened and cooked banana is sweet enough!
Great! Normally I’d have to boil steel cut oats for 30 min on the stove to get a nutty yet mushy consistency but today I was feeling experimental so I microwaved them for 3 min. I’d suggest using rolled oats in the microwave for this recipe if you have them. My taste buds are pretty weird so I liked the super crunchy appeal of the microwaved steel cut oats.
The oats mixed with the TVP created an overall oatmeal taste. I am so happy that I can eat this for bfast and be full longer. 1/2 cup of TVP has 22g of protein! Whenever I eat regular oatmeal I get hungry quickly because of the carb content. This is revolutionary!
I love TVP! So far I have used it as a grain replacement and as a meat substitute. Versatility to the max!
Whey Protein Crepes Recipe
*1/2 cup egg whites (I use Egg Whites Intl. liquid egg whites)
*1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder or flavor of your choice (EAS brand from Costco is pretty good, but currently searching for a go-to brand!)
*2 TBSP Whole Flax Seeds (ground is ok too)
*¼ cup berries of your choice
* 1-2 TBSP of almond milk if too sticky to spread
*Stevia to taste
1. Mix the egg whites, protein, flax and stevia together and cook in a pan like an omelet. Spread thinly. If you find this is too pasty, then add some almond milk. Cook on med to low heat.
2. Fill the middle with the berries of your choice and fold the top over.

1 Ingredient All Natural Banana “Ice Cream” Recipe
You are going to be so pleased with this…all you need for this concoction is a couple overripe bananas and a food processor.
Take your overripe banana, peel, and cut into small chunks or coins. Then freeze. Once frozen, whip out your food processor and blend it all up for a few minutes. Keep scraping down as it may get stuck. That’s it! You’ve got a sweet and custardy treat that seriously tastes like ice cream! If you’re only using 1 medium banana, then your ice cream is about 100-120 calories.
To add more flavor you can also add honey and peanut butter while blending.
Have fun! Let me know how yours turns out.
Have a Happy 4th of July Weekend!
Miracle Noodle Teriyaki Green Beans, Edamame, & Pork Dish
Oh so yummy! This was SUPER FAST to make. I think it literally took like 5 minutes to throw this whole thing together. I spent more time taking pictures than cooking. I should win an award for fastest healthy chef ever.
*1 serving french cut green beans (Trader Joes) or you can use any green bean
*1 serving edamame, shelled (Trader Joes)
*3-4oz of ground meat (I used pork because I had that laying around)
*1 TBS Teriyaki sauce or to taste
*1 packet of Zero Calorie Shirataki Miracle Noodle
1. Drain your Miracle Noodles into a sifter and run under warm water until fishy smell disappears. (Don’t worry about the smell, it is nothing harmful!) Let sit and dry while cooking other ingredients.
2. Throw the frozen green beans and edamame into a big frying pan. Once halfway cooked through, throw in your ground meat. Push around for a little bit then add the terayaki sauce.
3. Once the meat is cooked through, dump Miracle Noodles on! Taste. Add soy sauce or more teriyaki to your preference.
So done! It tasted great. Most of the time, I don’t plan my meals and just throw together whatever I have laying around. Edamame cooks beautifully and tastes very buttery. Tons of protein too in those little guys! The answer to a quick healthy meal is some nutritiously fresh ingredients and a happy sautee-er.
HOLY GUACAMOLE! Healthy Chobani Greek Yogurt Guac Recipe!
I didn’t know you could mix avocados and greek yogurt. Now I do. And I like it.
*1/2 cup Chobani Nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt
*1 ripe avocado
*2 small tomatoes
*2 garlic cloves
*1/4 tsp cumin
*salt to taste
*paprika or tabasco sauce to taste
*If you have cilantro, put it in there! I was out:(
(Recipe adapted from Chobani Kitchen)
1. Chop up your veggies and place in a separate bowl.
2. Mash your avocados. Leave the whole seed in there and add lime juice immediately to prevent browning. Now add in the greek yogurt.
3. Mix together you veggies and your guac. Sprinkle your cumin, salt, and paprika or tabasco sauce in there and keep taste testing until you like it.
4. DONE! Eat!
Nice and chunky. Smoothy and creamy.
I didn’t have tortilla chips/I don’t eat them anymore so I made a taco lettuce wrap instead. It was so good! Just sautee some lean ground turkey, then add black beans, salsa, and guac over an iceberg lettuce leaf.
Super yummy! Great summertime meal.
