Letís Eat Pizza

Written by Sue DeFiore

One of my familyís favorite meals is called ďlittle pizzasĒ. We take an English muffin and split it, put some tomato sauce on it, then some low fat mozzarella cheese with some pepperoni slices (hey sometimes you just have to splurge)! However, some healthier toppings would be ham (lean), Canadian bacon, turkey sausage, peppers, olives, or sliced or diced onions.

We toast our English muffins before we startrepparttar process and then pop them intorepparttar 139913 oven untilrepparttar 139914 cheese melts. My husbandís parents had a toaster oven and they cooked theirs in that.

Many years ago a nifty little device came out calledrepparttar Crock Pot. You could cut up a bunch of veggies, meat, and spices, dump them inrepparttar 139912 pot, and it did allrepparttar 139913 hard work. You came home atrepparttar 139914 end ofrepparttar 139915 day and Presto you had a nice hearty meal. Add a salad and some bread/rolls and you were set.

As I visit numerous on line boards and web groups/forums I see more and more people mentioning how they made their meal inrepparttar 139916 crock pot. I am happy to see it is making a comeback. With allrepparttar 139917 press whichrepparttar 139918 obesity crisis and how bad we all eat is getting, it gives me hope for many Americans. Now we just have to worry about how to getrepparttar 139919 rest of them to eat healthier.

I am so tired of hearing from people they donít haverepparttar 139920 time for home cooked meals. I work, I haverepparttar 139921 kids, yada, yada, yada. Everyone has some kind of excuse. However, if you ask these same people if they saw Survivor, Amazing Race or any number of other reality shows, they can reciterepparttar 139922 show from beginning to end. Well, how about using your hands for something other than stuffing your face while you are watching television. Cut up some meat and vegetables. If you really donít haverepparttar 139923 time it will take to cook uprepparttar 139924 meat (anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes depending onrepparttar 139925 meat and how you like it) then buy pre-cooked meat.
