“Lavish” Mexican Pizza Recipe

by DanicasDaily on March 11, 2010

This morning I knew I wouldn’t get a chance to have breakfast until late so I made sure to stop for a Grande FF Decaf Latte with Caramel Drizzle (2.5 pts) to make sure I broke “the fast” :D

When I finally got into work after my morning appointment, I couldn’t wait to dig into breakfast.  My Smiley Egg Whites started out cute, but, turned sorta creepy by the time I took pictures LOL….

1 1/4 c Watermelon/Cantaloupe (1 pt)

1 serving Instant Grits (2 pts)

1/3 c Liquid Egg whites with a “HOT” Sriracha Smile (1 pt)

I ventured out at lunch for a quick 2-3 mile jog/walk to keep my legs loose for the race on Sunday.  I warmed up walking for 10 minutes, then, starting jogging and my left hip immediately kicked in.  GRRR…I tried doing a few 1 minute jogs but decided after the first mile it wasn’t worth hurting my hip again.  So, I walked a total of 2 miles, stretched a bunch and called it good.

I couldn’t wait to get back for the salad I dreamed up last night.  It was entirely centered around my latest obsession ~ The Harvest Grain Salad (4 pts).

Plus 2 oz leftover BBQ Chicken and 1 Sargento Low Fat Colby Square (3 pts).

Crunchy baby bell peppers.

Topped with just a drizzle of Anniie’s Lite Herb Balsamic Dressing.  This salad was so good I was sorta sad when it was all gone :(

I didn’t really wait for the afternoon to bust into my afternoon snack.  I pretty much had it as dessert for my lunch.  It all started with a few tastes of frosting from a chocolate cake my co-worker made (she had me at double the frosting) ~ 2 pts.  So….I HAD to have a few pieces of my favorite ChocoLOVE ~ Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt & Almonds to keep me from eating more cake :D  See the logic ~ chocolate takes chocolate cravings away ;)  (3 pts).

I ran around after work enjoying the 67 degree SUNSHINE before I came home to make this AWESOME, FAST and very ‘”LAVISH” dinner.

And Enjoy it ALL!  You don’t have to share if you don’t want to….The Husband stole 2 slices of my LAVISH Mexican Pizza even though he said he didn’t want any :)

That is sort of one indicator I know a healthy recipe is good….He is totally anti-wheat so if he eats it, you know it’s tasty :D

Dessert was a couple of my LAVISH Agave Cinnamon Chips!  I made up a batch for my guest post on Snack-Girl ~ recipe to be shared with you all soon.

Off to relax and enjoy Iron Chef a movie with my “Oak-Y” Husband.  He finally caved today and saw the doctor so hopefully he will get better soon!

Just one more day…..I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS WEEKEND ~ AHHHH ~ SO EXCITED!  My sis picked up our race packets today!

Night all!

That pizza looks great! I have a lot of flat-outs right now, so I may have to try something similar…

Good luck with the race on Sunday, and I hope the rest of your weekend is fantastic, too.
