Clean Eating Pizza & a Cake Experiment

Turkey Pepperoni Pizza on Whole Wheat Crust Fresh Tomato & French Onion Pizza on Naan Crust Chocolate Red Raspberry Cak

Last night was pizza night.  I finally found the 365 Organic pre-baked whole wheat pizza crusts at a Whole Foods that’s just opened up down the street from me.  Woohoo!  When the very helpful associate brought me right to the crusts, he also pointed out 365’s new Tandoori Whole Wheat Naan bread.  Seeing that they were 260 calories and 5g fiber a bread – four to a pack – I immediately scooped up a couple of packs.  So, my BF got his turkey pepperoni and cheese pizza on his whole crust, and I made my Fresh Tomato and French Onion pizza on the Naan bread.  We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals.

Still in the vein of testing out different ideas for the PB&J party, I decided to make a Chocolate Red Raspberry cake.  I didn’t include peanut butter because I was trying out an entirely new method, at least for me.  It’s apparently been around for quite a while, but I’d never heard of it.  I mixed one can of Diet Rite zero-calorie Red Raspberry Soda into a box of devil’s food cake mix and baked according to package instructions.  How much simpler could you get?!  My frosting idea was a blend of light Cool Whip, sugar-free red raspberry preserves and marshmallow creme.  It was very flavorful but not overly sweet.  My BF, who doesn’t like cake, proclaimed it “really, really good” and was quite happy to know there was more.  Yay!
