Low*ish* Calorie Pizza

I mean… if you are desperate enough any pizza is good pizza! This is a recipe for a low calorie and low carb pizza.

Start with these tortillas, they are 50 calories and 4 net carbs

Dip a basting brush in olive oil and cover the tortilla. Sprinkle the tortilla with garlic and onion powder. Then take 1/4 of a cup of spaghetti sauce and cover the tortilla, 30 calories and 4 net carbs.

Sprinkle 1/6 a cup of mozzarella over the sauce, that is 40 calories and 1 carb. Space out 6 pepperoni, one in the middle and 5 around, 60 calories and no carbs

So in total for one pizza you are looking at 180 calories and 9 net carbs! That is pretty fantastic, we usually eat one pizza and a salad to get our greens.

Somehow we failed to get a cooked picture…. but it tastes amazing!

Shrimp Tacos

Hello all!! My husband and I are back on the weightloss wagon. He is down 10lbs and I am down almost 5, I have lost an entire 1.5 inch off my waist!

We are mainly focusing on our diet, “abs are made in the kitchen” and I am doing some strength training at least 5 days a week.

We are doing a low carb, not a no carb diet. We have had A LOT of salmon and broccoli these last 4 weeks! So I have been looking for something new to try and I found…. SHRIMP TACOS!!!

In total this meal is less than 350 calories

You get 4 of these bad boys!

So I started with a large bag of raw shrimp

I took this picture in the freezer… cloudy

I made homemade taco seasoning with salt, pepper, chili powder, paprika, cumin, onion powder and garlic powder. For a kick we added this habanero lime seasoning

It’s got a bite!

I diced up half a head of green and purple cabbage and I covered them in fresh lime juice. It was a salsa of sorts. For the sauce my husband mixed up mayo and sriracha. We only had miracle whip, I would not recommend it… it tasted weird and watery; but spicy!

You get 4 of these!!

Now just piece them together! Some salsa, 4 shrimp and sauce on each tortilla. It is a delicious, easy and filling meal.

I hope you like the recipe! Do you have any that you love???

Gordon Ramsay Steak Sandwich

This weekend my husband and I made an amazing meal based off Gordon Ramsay’s ultimate steak sandwich. I have the video linked above, so I won’t list everything in the original recipe, only what we did different.

It doesn’t look like much, but it is so amazing

We actually used pork instead of steak, we cooked it in olive oil, thyme, salt and pepper. For the salsa I used jarred jalapenos instead of fresh and my husband had the genius idea of adding sauerkraut.

The food is cooking

The final difference is the bread, the original recipe called for ciabatta bread, but I HATE ciabatta. So we sliced up French bread and toasted it.

Terrible lightning, but the sandwich is piled

All in all it was an amazing twist on his great tasting recipe, barely had any leftovers!
