FOOD SWAP #1 – 200 CALORIE “PIZZA” ROLLS

pizzarollsss

I’m on a real health kick at the moment, and I’m keeping my diet as clean as possible which means cutting out the refined carbs like white bread, pasta and potatoes and swapping them for complex carbs and whole grains. The only problem is, I have a real love affair with pizza. I always make my own from scratch which isn’t as bad a shop-bought options, but those pizza crust calories can really add up and if you’re trying to drop a few pounds like I am, it can be a no-no. I’m not the kind of person that thinks you have to give up what you like to be healthy, everything in life has it’s loopholes and I’ve found the loophole of the pizza world.

Enter the pizza roll! These babies are tasty, fresh, completely customisable and one wrap (if you follow the video) will come in at around 200 calories which means it’s a guilt free option for lunch. Who says you can’t have your cake pizza and eat it?

To make these you will need:

Wraps/tortillas – I used Rye wraps which are thinner but come in at 69 calories. You can use whatever you like but it’s best to stick to brands with as few ingredients as possible!

Tomato Puree

Mozzarella cheese – I recommend using grated for this recipe and use 20g. If you are watching your weight make sure you weigh this as overloading on cheese takes these from healthy to coronary.

Veggies – I used a quarter of a bell pepper, half a red onion and two tablespoons of sweetcorn.

Oregano for that authentic pizza taste, chilli flakes (optional) and black pepper to season.

    I made these tonight Gemma and absolutely loved them. Me and my mum are hooked, as they feel like more of a naughty treat than they actually are and they fit in nicely with the eating plan I am currently on (Slimming World). They fill me up too which is a massive bonus! Thanks so much for sharing these x

    Thanks for your publication on this site. From my personal experience, often times softening upwards a photograph might provide the photography with a chunk of an imaginative flare. Often however, that soft clouds isn’t just what exactly you had in your mind and can often times spoil an otherwise good picture, especially if you consider enlarging the item.

    My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    My wife and i ended up being peaceful Chris managed to round up his reports from your precious recommendations he grabbed from your very own blog. It is now and again perplexing just to choose to be freely giving tips and hints that some other people could have been selling. Therefore we recognize we need the website owner to give thanks to for that. The specific illustrations you’ve made, the simple site navigation, the friendships you can aid to create – it’s all impressive, and it is facilitating our son and our family feel that that matter is awesome, and that is exceedingly vital. Thanks for all the pieces!
