I Feel Like A Human Garbage Can | Little Caesar's

OH MY GOODNESS!!! HOW COULD I DO THIS TO MYSELF?

I am so disappointed in myself for caving to the fast food. He comes in with the groceries and Little Caesar's ... I had NO idea how many calories are in this stuff until I entered it into MFP. 2 slices of pepperoni pizza, one bread stick and about 1/2 garlic dip = 910 calories. The kicker is that I feel all sluggish and bloated ... mad at my husband for feeding us that crap ... disappointed in myself because I just did a detox from processed foods. I feel like a human garbage can!!! YUCK :(

Meanwhile, I don't even like their pizza that much. It's one of those lazy cheap foods that I try to avoid because it makes me feel like crap.  

I want my 910 calories back, so that I can try again :)

I meant to make and eat the cauliflower crust pizza ...

CAULIFLOWER CRUST PIZZA RECIPE

 

Ingredients

1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1 egg, beaten

1 teaspoon dried oregano

½ teaspoon crushed garlic

½ teaspoon garlic salt

olive oil (optional)

pizza sauce, shredded cheese and choice of your toppings

 

Making the cauliflower dough

 

Instructions

To "rice" the Cauliflower: Take 1 large head of fresh cauliflower, remove stems and leaves, and chop the florets into chunks. Add to food processor and pulse until it looks like grain. Do not over-do pulse or you will puree it. (If you don't have a food processor, you can grate the whole head with a cheese grater). Place the riced cauliflower into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 8 minutes. There is no need to add water, as the natural moisture in the cauliflower is enough to cook itself. One large head should produce approximately 3 cups of riced cauliflower. The remainder can be used to make additional pizza crusts immediately, or can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.

 

To Make the Pizza Crust:

 Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup cauliflower, egg and mozzarella. Add oregano, crushed garlic and garlic salt, stir. Transfer to the cookie sheet, and using your hands, pat out into a 9" round. Optional: Brush olive oil over top of mixture to help with browning.

Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.

Remove from oven.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust with lots of veggies

To the crust, add sauce, toppings and cheese. Place under a broiler at high heat just until cheese is melted (approximately 3-4 minutes). 

*Note: Toppings need to be precooked since you are only broiling for a few minutes.

New To MyFitnessPal | Lost 34 Pounds Lost

My dream is to lose weight, get healthy and feel great about myself again. I would also like to run for fitness.
 
I AM NEW & REALLY ENJOYING THE EXPERIENCE THIS TIME AROUND
 
I have been to this site quite a few times before signing up. In fact, I joined once and canceled my account just because I felt so overwhelmed by tyring to enter my foods in on a daily basis, plus I really like using Cron-o-meter for tracking because it is a little more flexible for food tracking and I get to see whether I am getting all of my nutrients or need to increase certain foods or take a supplement.
 
None of that matters now I am here at MFP ...
 
I am really enjoying the social aspect of this community and do manage to get the general food information that I need like watching my sodium, sugars and fat.
 
Ok, so I lost 44 pounds over the past 6 months and kept off 34 of it. I was motivated to do this by joining a Weight Loss Challenge while taking an all natural appetite supplement (has glucomannan, cha de burge, caralluma and protein enzymes). It took me two challenges to get to this point.
 
I became serious about getting healthy more than just the weight loss. I did this by learning how to eat better for my body (still working on this but I did narrow down the foods that made me sluggish) and trying to get consistent with my fitness goals.
 
MY DREAM IS FOR BOTH MY FAMILY AND ME  ...
 
The dream is not just lose weight, but to become more fit and flexible again while making a major impression on my children and husband. My baby is only 2 years old, so he is much easier to instill healthy lifestyle changes in. I started putting the types of foods that he threw into the blender. He now helps make his smoothies and gets really fussy when he is not sure whether I am pouring him a cup. It is so cute. Plus, I know that he is getting his fruits a veges each day.
 
My middle child is a teen and my junk food junkie. He is not as open to my lovely green smoothies (especially my Kale Smoothie) or trading rice for cauliflower rice, though he does eat most vegetables I make. I am doing my best to learn how to make these types of changes attractive to him by being a consistent example. FYI, I am thinking that my new cauliflower crust pizza recipe might make him change his tune :)  I can't wait to try it. He is the one that keeps me company while making fruit smoothies and watching me cook. I am hoping these will rub off on him, so that he is doing the same for his children one day. 
 
My husband is a different story. He is not big on green vegetables unless they are broccoli with cheese or peas - which I am not keen on making either because I love my broccoli plain. My weight has been up and down following behind him over the years and his particular food needs (ice cream, meat / potatoes meals / pizza every other night), so I am finally at the point that I am cooking differently for me if I have to (because I want to) opposed to just following suit. I really can't stand eating food that I do not know how it is handled and have had enough pizza to last 2 people a lifetime. It makes me sluggish. It makes me feel like I am feeding my children CRAP becasue I am too lazy to cook. NO! NO! NO!
 
My hubby Is Another Story ... 
 
He is now starting to tell me that I am losign weight. Today, he rubbed his belly and said that he wants to lose weight, too (He is not that big - just the belly). He was even virtual window shopping for bikes with me today ... he was actually looking at the bikes for himself and mentioned that he needed a light one in case he wanted to ride it to the store (which is like 10 miles away)
 
I JUST SMILE TO MYSELF BECAUSE I FEEL CLOSER TO MY DREAMS OF LOSING THIS WEIGHT AND HAVING A HEALTHY FAMILY. IT FEELS GREAT!!!
