A Healthy Adaptation of an American Classic

Posted Jan 22 2009 4:03pm

Lately for quick dinners when my husband has been in class or we’ve been too stressed after our work/ fitness routines to cook, I’ve been making English muffin pizzas for dinner.

I have found they are a great way to get in some healthy fat, as well as a way to eat something I love. Sometimes I use fresh tomatoes, and sometimes I use marinara, but it’s one of the quickest four-food-groups menus I can come up with (whole grain, dairy, oil, veggie).

Double the recipe for two people. For dinner for one, I make mine using:

1 Thomas Light English Muffin
1 tsp EVOO
1/4 c marinara sauce OR fresh tomato
Oregano and garlic powder to taste
1/4 c FF mozzarella cheese (you can use soy mozz or any other cheese you like — full-fat, reduced-fat)

Delicious and simple. I fix side salads and green beans or another veggie and presto, you have dinner in under 15 minutes!

How about you? What’s your favorite healthy way to revamp a family favorite?
