Diet Confessions - Pizza Alternative

Dr Oz invited a guest on to his show today to talk about her biggest "diet confession".  She said that her biggest weakness has to be pizza.  She says that she orders it several times a week and gets upset at the delivery driver if he/she is late!  Ok, I love pizza and all, but I don't have the delivery driver on a timer! Ha ha..  Well, Dr Oz came up with a great alternative for love for pizza with a Portabella Pizza Pie Recipe.  This looked really tasty and much more agreeable to anyone that is currently on a diet or just trying to maintain their current weight!

Portabella Pizza Pie Recipe

Rather than using a crust for a pizza use a Portobello Mushroom! I already like the sound of this since I love Portobello Mushrooms!  Here are the directions that they flashed on the tv screen today :
  • Bake 5 minutes to dry the mushroom out
  • Add 1 tablespoon of low sugar pasta sauce
  • 1/2 cup of low fat mozzarella cheese
  • Veggie toppings of your choice (I love spinach on pizza!)
  • Bake until cheese is melted
This simple recipe will cut out about 175 calories of a serving of pizza of equal size.  

Popped Chickpeas

Another woman came on to today's Dr Oz "Diet Confession" episode to reveal how much she like salty foods like chips and popcorn.  Dr Oz revealed his remedy for all of us that have a weakness for chips and crunchy foods laden with salt.

Popped chickpeas are a great alternative.  They give you that "crunch" taste and don't have much fat.  They are also high in protein.


Somersaults are sunflower seeds and toasted grains.  Somersaults have less fat, fewer calories, and more protein than potato chips.
