Pepperoni Pizza Salad

Most of my adult life I was a vegetarian and dabbled in raw and vegan.  I have a true, intimate love for salads as they were a huge part of my eating life for a long time.  Now that I am a Trim Healthy Mama, salads take on a new meaning.  They are chocked full of protein and healthy fats that really trim my waistline and keep me full.  In my veggie days, there's no wonder I (a) wasn't loosing any weight and (b) always felt hungry.

Salad with Pizza Sauce??? No wait... It's good, I promise!


A great way to have this salad is to make sure when you make your Super Speedy Crust Pizza or Fooled Ya Pizza, you save 2 Tablespoons of pizza sauce..... way back in the frig so no one thinks is a mystery food and throws it out! 


Into my salad went all the things that I love on a pizza:
pepperoni
orange peppers
mozzarella
onions
(lettuce of coarse)


Not pictured but would work:
crumbled sausage
green peppers
olives (yuck, I hate olives)
fresh herbs like basil and Italian parsley

...and so on...you get the idea


Pizza Sauce Salad dressing:
2 Tbs Pizza Sauce + Ranch Dressing = Creamy Dreamy Pizza Taste!


Mark my words, when you finish eating this you'll swear you just consumed a naughty pizza and won't even miss the bread!  Promise ;)

My favorite Pepperoni is:

Snickers Smoothie

ONE WORD.... Snickers!  Yep!  Makes your mouth and mind BUZZZZZZZZ!
This recipe was graciously shared to me by a trim healthy mama.  I am always skeptical when something says 'healthy' and has a name brand tagged on it.  Like brownies made with cottage cheese.  Or how about 'Doritos' kale chips!  C+C Music Factory comes to mind with "Things that make you go hmmmmmm!"  
BUT.................
This really has a Snickers-ish flare to it.  And- I love it.   Go all out on your extract.  I have friends that get theirs at Walmart, but quality verses quantity wins me over.  You usually have to use more of the cheap stuff to get that punch of flavor.  My favorite is Bakto.  The other spotlight in this Snickers Shake is Glucomannan.  You can read its wonderful qualities here.

Into your favorite blender add the following:

NO BAKE....Pumpkin Bites {S}

I had a small amount of canned pumpkin left in my frig and created these on a whim. Not to build them up too much, but they remind me of those donut holes you buy in a box. I'm gonna steal the THM saying and say... Own It!! Make this your own. I just made these on the fly, but you can certainly put whatever spin you want on them! I love how the sisters encourage us to be our own chefs! Get creative & Make it work 
NO BAKE....Pumpkin Bites {S}: 1 c baking blend (homemade or THM brand)
1/2 c pure can pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla
Splash caramel extract *optional, if you don't have it's okay*
Pinch of salt
1 Tb almond butter
1/2-1 Tb pumpkin pie spice, depending how spicy you like it
1 Tb coconut oil
Sweetener *the amount is gonna be questionable. There are so many different kinds out there. I make my own which probably can be compared to the Gentle Sweet. I did about 1/3 cup but dumped more in making it like 1/2 cup...BUT...I like super duper sweet stuff. Just taste as you go!  Erythrito…

The Shrinker

A drink that shrinks your waistline, gives you energy, improves your health and fights cancer? What in the world? Yes, it's all true!  Oolong tea can be purchases online, found in Asian markets and I even saw it at Publix.  




SHRINK the FAT...

**** Oolong improves vitality... prolongs lifespan... combats the aging of skin... treats eczema and rashes... prevents heart disease and cancer… reduces high blood pressure... it's a physical and mental stress reliever... strengthens teeth and prevents tooth decay... improves brain power... you get the picture. Best of all it makes a scrumptious drink called the "SHRINKER" and you get all these extras and more thrown in for good measure.  Oolong contains antioxidants that powerfully destroy free radicals. Research conducted by Dr Kenichi Yanagimoto from the university of California, showed that only 15 days of Oolong tea drinking enabled an incredible 50% reduction in free radicals.
Another study conducted by the academy of Tradi…
