I Swear I Had A Title…

22 Feb

I was at work talking to SB about recipes, points and random food things and had a brilliant idea for a title for today’s post – the title would be the start of an equally brilliant post and I was so sure I wouldn’t forget the title (because it was that good) that I didn’t write it down, email it to myself, nuthin. Well, the joke’s on me cause I can’t remember that title, or the post topic…I got nuthin except that annoying sensation when you know something is lurking on the edge of your brain and on the tip of your tongue but you just can’t access itΒ – I hate that!

I keep circling around in my brain, trying to remember everything we talked about and what topic and title could have jumped in to my brain from it…the circling it seems is for naught…since hey, still nothing coming in to my head! lol.

Well, let’s start yapping about something else and see if it comes back to me…

I have left over pizza shells that I gotta use so dinner tonight was pepperoni pizza, yum! Now sure, not as good as “real” pepperoni pizza but this wasn’t so bad. shrug. I bought Yves Veggie Pizza Pepperoni, it is meatless pepperoni pieces specially meant to be used as pizza toppings.

Fake Pepperoni: 48 grams = 2 points

So, here is the thing with fake pepperoni, it smells like the stuff you’d feed your cat or dog as a treat – when I opened the package I cringed when I got a whiff, ugh. I thought for sure I was gonna hate the stuff cause how can you like something that smells like that? Regardless, I put them on the pizza, shoved that sucker in the oven and quickly sealed the unused fake pepperoni in to a ziploc bag – no more smell, yah! πŸ˜‰

Once it is warmed up it no longer smells gross, which was quite the relief I tell ya! lol. Oh, and 48 grams is 2 points, that is 16 slices or so and I only needed 31 grams of pepperoni (it’s all that would fit on the pizza) so you get some protein with a pepperoni look and kinda flavour/texture for very few points – since real pepperoni is way high in points the fake pepperoni has a definite edge over the real stuff when it comes to calories. πŸ˜€

I find that learning to eat healthy isn’t about complete sacrifice so much as compromises – I compromised on the pepperoni so that I could have the general pizza experience, and that general pizza experience will stop me from caving and ordering a real pizza from Panago and blowing way more points then any sane person ever should. And hey, if the day comes where I absolutely have to have the real pizza from Panago I’m not saying I won’t have it, but knowing that I have a healthier option makes it easier to not neeeeed the higher caloried foods…that probably doesn’t make much sense but it works for me…lol.

So here is what I ate today:

1 Quakers Hearty Medley Banana n Nut package = 2 points

1 cup carrot soup = 2 points

1 jell-o rice pudding cup = 2 points

1 pizza shell = 5 points

30 grams shredded light cheese = 2 points

31 grams Yves veggie pizza pepperoni = 1.5 points

1/8 cup pizza sauce = 0.5 points

1 piece bread = 2 points

1 cup grapes = 1 point

1 Jaffa Bar = 2 points

Total Points Eaten = 20.5

It was either be a bit over or a bit under (my usual predicament lol) and I chose a bit over cause hello? Jaffa Bar! lol πŸ˜€

I didn’t mean to eat so few veggies and fruit today, it just sorta happened…I find that new Quaker’s Hearty Medley’s Oatmeal is so filling I don’t want my mid morning snack (which is always fruit) so I am losing a fruit serving there and well hey, I was going for a traditional pepperoni pizza experience tonight so I wasn’t gonna cover the pizza in veggies, lol. I will make it up tomorrow. πŸ™‚

Oh, and no, I wasn’t trying to save points by cutting back on my pizza sauce, hello? That’s not a high point item so it’d be dumb to sacrifice that…I just ran out, sadness. shrug. I’m gonna hafta buy more cause I want to use up the pizza shells and you can’t have pizza without sauce…altho, I’m thinking at least one pizza needs an alfredo sauce or that creole dijon sauce just to spice it up a bit. πŸ˜›
