Couple of Fat Burning recipes


I found a great blog with some recipes I plan to try out this week...
Check it out:

Flat Belly Recipe: Low Fat Greek Pizza
This one is super easy and quick.
Here's what you need:
1 Boboli (or other pre-baked) pizza crust
1 small can Contadina Italian Style tomato paste
1 cup feta cheese
1 cup mozzerella cheese
2 cups frozen chopped spinach
1 small jar Mariani's marinated button mushrooms or artichoke hearts
1/4 cup oil-packed sundried tomatoes (halved)

Spread the tomato sauce evenly on the crust, thaw the spinach in the microwave
and spread that, and finally the cheeses. Cook according to the pizza crust instructions
(usually 450 degrees for 9-12 minutes), adding the tomatoes and other veggies in the last three or four minutes so they don't burn.

I'll do this one one night for what we call "Breakfast Dinner"
I'll make this for myself and DH and the kids will probably have
eggs, toast and fruit.
Flat Belly Recipe: Hi-Pro/Low Fat Spinach Scramble
• 4 eggs and 8 additional whites
• 2 cups chopped frozen spinach
• 2 tblsp sun dried tomatoes or pesto
• 1/2 cup grated smoked cheese
• Salt and pepper to taste

Saute spinach in a pan on medium with a one tbsp olive oil. Scramble egg mixture and add to the pan. Stir with spatula and add pesto. When eggs are golden and very slightly browned, turn off heat and grate cheese over pan. Serve topped with medium salsa. Serves 4-6

One other thing we'll do this week is grill some chicken and boil a couple eggs
and make a salad with spinach, romain, tomatoes, cucs, and maybe some mandrin

For breakfast, I'm going to try really really hard to eat real oatmeal.. We'll see how that goes.
I found a few ideas of things to add to the oatmeal to make it taste better and to add protein.
