So…I love Pinterest. Like…I wish I could get paid for pinning! But it is also an awesome resource for fun and healthy recipes! Although I love fruits and veggies…I love pizza and fried foods too!
So Pinterest has been able to help me find ways that I can keep eating foods that I love but a bit healthier. The easiest and obvious one was baked not fried…and tonight I just had the taste for a cheese stick. I mean, who doesn’t love cheese? So I was lucky enough to to find a recipe that did not seem half bad for Baked or Fried Mozzarella Sticks. Now what I loved about it most was…I don’t HAVE to make 12 I can just make 2! That is enough to make me feel like I had my craving satisfied and not overdose on the calories! PLUS…they don’t look half bad…and I did not use a lot of EVOO so I wonder if they would have been browner if I did…I only lightly covered them. I also used the low-fat not fat-free cheese since I was not able to find any of the fat-free. I may try experimenting with soy cheese next time, but it just looked like the wrong color! Overall this recipe was delicious and I will DEFINITELY be making it again! Here is the recipe:
So today I decided was a rest day. I had an appointment right after work and did not want to rush to the gym. So I decided to take the day off. Overall, I could make use of taking a walk during my breaks to get SOME kind of exercise in…but the food damage was not TOO bad, I was over 100 calories, darn cheese sticks!
On a side note…Trish had pinned a visual motivator for her weight loss journey that I am going to try and make this weekend! Such an awesome idea! Any motivation to keep me on track is worth it! 🙂
