Hawaiian Pita Pizzas By: Lindsey

My husband cooked these tonight and I am telling you they were GOOD! I wish I could eat another one. But that would defeat the point of them being healthy, right? Ha. He did say that he didn't use as much sauce that the recipe called for.


  • 2 pieces whole-wheat pita bread
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 cups low-sugar pizza or pasta sauce, divided
  • 1 tomato, sliced thinly
  • 8 slices deli ham, cut into fourths
  • 1 (6 ounce) can pineapple chunks, drained
  • 1/4 cup low-fat shredded mozzarella cheese


Set oven to broil. Brush pita bread with olive oil, put on a baking sheet and broil four inches from the heat for two minutes. Remove from oven. Spread a cup of pizza sauce over each pita and top with equal amounts of tomato, ham and pineapple. Sprinkle with cheese. Return to oven and broil for three more minutes or until cheese is melted.

Yummy Fish(Or chicken) By: Lindsey

Hey! So, my husband and I(along w/most of my family) are on a healthy kick right now. I am going to post some great recipes that are healthy for you and so tasty! I got all of these from the Body For Life "diet". So, they are Body For Life's recipes.

This one I don't have correct measurements. It is easy and really good!

This serves 2

2 pieces of fish(we used Talapia) or you can use 2 chicken breast
2 lemons
1 tomato
1 Bunch of Broccoli

Put one piece of fish or chicken breast on a piece of foil. Add salt and pepper to the meat. Slice up a lemon and add the slices to the top of the meat(don't squeeze it until after it is cooked). Add one slice of tomato on top. Throw in as much broccoli as you would like in the foil. Wrap up. Put on a pan. Cook on 350 for 25 minutes(the chicken takes you might want to up the temp. if you choose to do the chicken). This recipe is SO good!
