Spinach and Arugula Pizza for One

spinach and arugula healthy pizzaSome of you may know but I recently told everyone I had borderline high cholesterol.  Not something I wanted to hear.  With that being said and with mouth surgery I recently had, I have decided healthy living is what I want from here on out.

I just downloaded the MyFitnessPal app, which has been going awesome!  I’m exercising regularly and counting calories.  I am back to eating healthy which is nothing new for me, but somewhere along the way, I quit.

Not this time.spinach and arugula homemade healthy pizza

My days have consisted of power oatmeal(recipe soon), Luna Bars, Kashi Cereal, healthy omelets, salads, healthy soups and sandwiches and much more such as this healthy homemade pizza for one!

I love salads and pizza and figured I could throw it all together to make a healthy pizza for one.  This spinach and arugula pizza is wonderful, healthy and low in cholesterol not to mention so simple to make.  Pair this with 4 ounces of plain Greek yogurt (Fage Total 0%  is wonderful) and water, and you have a nutritious lunch or dinner for under 400 calories!  Enjoy.

    Looks tasty (and I love pizza salads, when I go to the pizzeria, it’s what I always order, but it’s a chopped salad they make it with).

    I also love your new logo!!
