One of the good things about the Plus Size Princess Fitness Challenge is that it forces me to cook. I’m a good cook, its something I enjoy, but sometimes I just don’t have (or make) the time for it.
For those of you who are used to easy meals that you can warm up, sometimes the idea of cooking a full meal can be daunting. My suggestion? Commit to cooking one fresh, clean side to do with your premade meal.
For example, I’m testing out pizza for American Flatbread this week (Download a $2 coupon here). These pizzas are all-natural, with no preservatives, artificial colors or flavors, handcrafted from scratch, made with a 100% organically grown wheat crust and baked in wood-fired ovens.
As frozen foods go, this is pretty top-notch, but I knew I needed a veggie, so I chopped up a head of cabbage and some garlic cloves, heated my skillet with olive oil and sautéed the cabbage and garlic while my pizza cooked in the oven. Even though I was looking for a quick meal, cooking a veggie while my pizza baked took no extra time. Within 15 minutes everything was done, I sprinkled a generous helping of pepper onto the cabbage, sat down and was pleased with my easy/organic meal.
A serving of this pizza is 340 calories. Delish!
