Recommended Posts

This is so encouraging! I'm two weeks post-op, and I'm telling you, the night before surgery, I dreamt about pizza! It's the one thing I miss the most.. oh well!

One day down the line, I'll have to try this!

They are insanely expensive considering you can make a flat bread pizza with the low carb flat out bread for probably $2 a pizza if that.

For 25 grams of Protein and 4 carbs I'm good with it. They have different kinds also.

I found out about the Real Good pizza Co. a few weeks ago and thought I would try it, when someone on BP told me that there were recipes out there that were delicious and easy for the same type of pizza.... the parm cheese and chicken crust.

So instead of spending the money on Real Good, I followed a link that someone left here for the pizza and I made my own crust with my own toppings. I have to tell you, it turned out amazing! The chicken/parm crust was awesome! If you went to know how to make it, I've posted the recipe below. Love the fact that the carbs are almost nothing and the Protein is high in this recipe.

Ingredients

One pound ground (raw) chicken breast - or 3 small boneless breasts, pulsed in food processor
½ cup grated Parmesan
1 cup freshly shredded part skim mozzarella - one cup shredded cheese is 4 ounces by weight
½ teaspoon garlic powder
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Dried oregano
½ cup prepared Pasta sauce
Crushed red pepper flakes
4 or 5 basil leaves, rolled and sliced
Toppings - lets not go crazy with fat - I used Molinari very lean pepperoni in paper thin slices

Instructions
Preheat oven to 450°F and line a baking sheet or pizza pan with parchment paper or foil sprayed with non stick vegetable cooking spray.
In a medium bowl combine the ground chicken with ¼ cup parmesan, ¼ cup mozzarella, ½ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon black pepper, ½ teaspoon garlic powder and ½ teaspoon oregano.
Mound the chicken mixture onto the parchment and pat into flat rectangle or disc. Cover with plastic wrap and evenly press or roll the chicken into a 7x10" rectangle or round. I use a rolling pin to get it very thin. Remove the plastic wrap and roast until golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Tip: make sure your crust is on the crispy side to keep it from having a rubbery texture.
Smear crust with sauce, scatter with ¼ cup Parmesan, ¾ cup mozzarella, layer with toppings and season with a sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes and ¼ teaspoon oregano.
Pop back into hot oven and cook until melted and bubbly 6 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and scatter with chopped basil.

If you like to cook, these are actually quite easy to make from scratch.

I love these pizzas. They have enchiladas too. Every pay check I treat myself to 2 pizzas and 2 enchiladas.

I really liked the pepperoni one, hated the Breakfast pizza. Even though the pepperoni was delicious, I didn't buy them again due to the sodium content. It was the first thing out of a freezer I ate since surgery 4 months ago :P

I wonder if you could use ground turkey instead of chicken? Turkey is pretty cheap where I live. Big turkey farm in town nearby, drives prices down to manageable levels, actually,cheaper than ground beef. Used to love hamburgers and other g.b., But they,don't sit well and hard to swallow. Chew everything down as well as possible with dentures, even though still presurg,my gastritis made me enter "spring training" early, maybe after my surgical "call up to the Major Leagues" I'll have the skill down pat[emoji12]

When I looked into these products I noticed that they are really high in fat - maybe I am wrong?

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
