Day 22

Breakfast: When I opened the fridge, I saw that my mom purchased my favorite brand of whole grain bagels! I toasted them and topped them off with natural creamy butter (this was a challenge since I am a crunchy girl) and an apple.

Lunch: After I rumaged through our fridge and freezer, I found enough a ingredients to make a nice little vegetable pizza. I did not call it a vegetarian pizza because anyone can enjoy it.

Vegetable Pizza
  • Whole grain flat bread
  • Pizza sauce
  • Olive or canola oil
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 sliced and halved green bell pepper
  • 3 tablespoons of cooked, leftover spinach
  • 1/2 thin sliced tomato
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • cumin, black pepper
  • Preheat the oven to 425. Lay the flat bread out on a piece of foil and spread with a thin layer of oil
  • Cover the flatbread in the amount of sauce that you like the spread with a layer of cheese
  • Next, take turns alternating the vegetables until there are no more left
  • Sprinkle with more cheese and top garnish the pizza with the spices
  • Bake at 425 for 10 minutes then broil for 2 minutes or until the cheese is a golden brown color
  • VOILA!

A Ground Beef and Sweet Potato Casserole
  • 96% lean ground beef
  • 1/2 Tbsp of olive or canola oil
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup diced green bell pepper
  • 1/2 chopped jalapeno
  • 1 bag of frozen sweet potatoes
  • Natural Colby Jack, Queso, and Monterrey Jack cheese

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Separate the bag of sweet potatoes onto two different trays. 
  • Add oil to a skillet on medium high then brown the meat and vegetables
  • Once the meat is finished, take the fries out of the oven- even though they are halfway cooked
  • To the first layer of sweet potatoes, add the meat mixture, then add sweet potatoes and cover with the remaining meat mixture. Sprinkle with cheese and bake until the cheese is a golden brown
  • Enjoy!
