Portobello Mushroom Pizza

I love this recipe, super easy to make…and delicious. :)

1 Portobello Mushroom Cap

2tbsp Tomato Sauce

1/4cup Shredded Cheese

Whatever toppings you’d like, get creative!

Calories per serving: Approximately 105 calories per pizza (depending on ingredients used)

Clean the mushroom caps with a damp paper towel. Scoop out the gills and cut off the stems of the mushrooms. Once they’re clean, put the mushrooms cap side down on the plate, spread the 2 table spoons of tomato sauces over the mushroom and sprinkle with cheese. Then I just pop it into the microwave for 2 minutes, and top with whatever I feel like-or eat it alone! So easy, cheap, and for college students you don’t even need an oven (but you can do this in the oven too).

Hope you guys like it!

Yes, no, maybe..?

Would anybody be interested in seeing the pre-planned food diary I’m making for passover? If anyone out there is keeping kosher this year, or is just interested in it for some reason, haha.

Healthy Recipes: Mussels and Tofu Stir-fry

First post, woo! I decided my first post would be about the stir-fry I whipped up out of the blue today. While you’re reading this keep in mind that this is not a single serving, that’s why it may seem like a lot of food. Personally I think this is a satisfying 4 meals. But it depends on the individual. I try not to eat more than 150 calories per meal. But for someone with a higher calories allowance, or even someone who isn’t counting calories but wants a healthy meal idea, this could serve 2-3.

Ingredients:

2tbsp ‘San-J Gluten Free Tamari Soy Sauce’

3cups Baby Bok Choy (chopped)

1 1/4cups Celery (chopped)

1cup White Onion (diced)

1 1/4cups Carrots (thinly chopped)

2/5 package ‘Nasoya Lite Firm Tofu’ (cubed)

200g Mussels (boiled without salt)

This is super easy, just like any stir-fry should be. I put in the onions, let them cook a little bit. Once they were fragrant, I put in 1tbsp of the soy sauce. Then I threw in all the veggies (carrots, bok choy, celery). After those had been cooking for a bit, I put about 1/4 cup of water just to speed up the cooking process and distribute the heat more evenly. Then I threw in all the protiens (tofu, mussels). Before the tofu was fully heated in the pan, I put in the last tablespoon of soy sauce on top of everything and gave the pan a good stir. Then I turned off the stove and let the dish sit for a little. From there I packaged it into 2 re-sealable containers and popped them in the fridge. That’s a good 4 meals packed with protein, fiber and lots of good stuff for you. Woo! Also it only took about 20 minutes, including prep time.

So here’s the calorie breakdown:

2tbsp ‘San-J Gluten Free Tamari Soy Sauce’  (20 calories)

3cups Baby Bok Choy (chopped) (60 calories)

1 1/4cups Celery (chopped) (76 calories)

1cup White Onion (diced) (67 calories)

1 1/4cups Carrots (thinly chopped) (66 calories)

2/5 package ‘Nasoya Lite Firm Tofu’ (cubed) (80 calories)

200g Mussels (boiled without salt) (172 calories)

Total: 541 calories

Total per serving: 135.25 calories

There is so much protein in this dish, and so many great veggies. Just try to lay off the heavy sauces and practice good portion control. I hope you’ll give it a try!
