Easy Pesto Tomato Cheese Pizza

Pesto Tomato Cheese Pizza. For me, it’s a healthier pizza that I don’t feel guilty for eating. It’s not greasy and it’s super delicious. My husband even loves this pizza!

If you asked my a few years ago to eat this pizza, I wouldn’t have wanted to because it wasn’t real pizza (and by real I mean pepperoni). I hated chopped tomatoes on my pizza. But as I get older, I learn to like things I didn’t. Crazy how that works, isn’t it?

This pizza is super easy to make.

You can put almost any type of topping you want to give it any kind of flavor you want. From chocolate chip cookie dough, cinnamon rolls, PB & J, to peach or tiramisu, you name it, and there’s probably a recipe out there.

Frozen Yogurt & Blueberry Granola Bites

As a momma, it’s hard to always find something quick to make for a snack before my little one decides to go venture somewhere he’s not supposed to. Even if I have barriers set up, he somehow finds a way to get around them! I’m not really a huge snacker but I do think it’s great for your metabolism to have a few small healthy snacks throughout the day, especially if you’re active. Plus, sometimes you just need that little extra energy to make it through until the next meal. That’s why I made these frozen yogurt and blueberry granola bites.

Berry Peach Smoothie

Smoothies seem to be the new go-to for breakfasts. They are great for grab n’ go mornings. They are easy to make and you can put basically anything you want in them. And for the most part, they’re pretty healthy for you too. Well, this morning I was feeling a smoothie… so I made a berry peach smoothie. Greatest thing?! It only took 6 ingredients! I love simple and quick recipes. We had an a peach that was getting almost too ripe, so I needed to use it right away. Those peaches were from our local Farmer’s Market and you could literally taste the right-off-the-tree freshness.

Homemade Chicken Enchiladas

Mexican food is a popular cuisine in my family. We have it ALL the time, but one of our favorite dishes is Chicken Enchiladas. Now, if you’ve ever been to Mexico or had real enchiladas, these aren’t quite that but these are a “Tex-Mex” version. Still so DELICIOUS.

Homemade Chicken Enchiladas

It’s super simple to make too! All you need is chicken, tomatoes, onion, bell pepper, tortillas and enchilada sauce. I like to make my own enchilada sauce because it tastes fresher but whatever you have on hand works great.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Energy Bars

I had one of those days where you find your clothes in parts of your house where clothes should never be… Somehow I left my running shorts inside my pantry. I clearly know myself well. Eat and exercise, right?! I literally spent all morning trying to figure out where they were and finally just assumed that they were in with the dirty clothes. Low and behold when I get ready to make dinner and open the pantry, there they were. I guess it’s better than finding them in the fridge.

It’s obvious that my mind wasn’t thinking very clearly. It was one of those days where “you-want-chocolate-but-not-too-much-to be-uhealthy” kind of days, but in the back of your mind, you’re really thinking, “meh-who-cares-I’m-going-to-eat-all-the-chocolate-I-want-and-be-happy-about-it.” Tempting…

I ended up settling for these peanut butter chocolate energy bars.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Bars- No-bake and easy to make. They are so addicting and they're the perfect combination of peanut butter and chocolate. http://thelittlemomma.com
