Whole Wheat Pizza with Olives

½ cup plain oatmeal, cooked in microwave, topped with:
2 Tbsp chopped walnuts
½ tsp plain cinnamon
5 oz. glass of OJ
Cup of coffee, black

Lunch: Salsa Salad
Roughly ¾ cup baby carrots (chopped up in the food processor)
½ avocado, chopped – yes I eat a lot of avocados!
2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
6 small balls of fresh mozzarella, cut in half
Some scallions
½ cup white beans (to add to the creamy texture)
3 Tbsp roughly of my homemade salsa serves as the ‘dressing’
Water with lemon
Cup of coffee, black

Snack:  Amazingly I did not have a snack – must be due to the high protein, fiber and (good) fats in my lunch – 99% of the time I have a snack between 3-4pm and cannot make it to dinner at 7:30pm without it!

Dinner:  Making up for lost snack calories with Pizza Night!
Homemade Pizza – made with whole wheat pizza dough (Trader Joe’s), Organic no salt added marinara sauce (Trader Joe’s) and full fat mozzarella (used an 8 oz bag for the whole pizza).  And we decided to do half with olives, as you will see in the picture.  I ate three yummy slices of this pizza and loved every bite!
5 oz. glass of red wine

Dessert:   1 Organic Gala Apple & Water

Notes:   Pizza is high in sodium due to all its ingredients so we tried the no salt added tomato sauce and though we noticed it at first, after the second time we completely forgot the difference and love that we were able to make a slightly healthier version, as Friday night is usually pizza night in this house!  The difference between what we had been using and the no salt added version was over 500 mg less of sodium per 1/2 cup serving!

Tips:  Part skim cheese is always an good option too, we go back and forth depending on where I do the shopping and what is on sale.
