So this is what I have been up to for the past 6 months....I have been shrinking. I had gastric bypass on December 9, 2015, and I am thankful to say that I am down 99 pounds. Praise the Lord, only about 40 more pounds to go! I am in no hurry though. I am just happy to be off insulin and blood pressure medications. My husband is happy I don't snore anymore.
I never expected to be in a situation where I have to remind myself to eat. My day used to revolve around where and/or what I was going to eat that day. So, I have had to develop other hobbies that do not include eating. More on that later.
While I am almost never hungry anymore (yeah!), I will admit that every once in awhile I want a big, fat, greasy slice of pizza. My tiny new pouch simply will not tolerate bread right now, much less a whole slice of pizza. So, off to Pinterest I go, searching for alternatives. I found this little gem. Wonton wrappers are a great alternative to pizza crust. So I baked some of these yummy wonton wrapper faux pizzas.
I preheated my oven to 350 and sprayed the wrappers with cooking spray, I then sprinkled a small amount of mozzarella cheese and placed a couple of pepperoni on each. I baked for about 8 minutes, then carefully blotted the extra grease off. I then returned them to the oven to finish crisping them up. Easy peazy! I did not use marinara sauce, as I was afraid it would make them soggy. Let me tell you, they were delicious! They more than satisfied my desire for pizza. I could only eat one, but my husband son loved them and finished them off. So there you go, a new bariatric friendly food for me and a great snack for us all.
