In an effort to lose the pounds the Rowdy and I have been on Weight Watchers for a little over two months. I follow the old points system since I have had success with that in the past. I can't imagine a WW fudge pop being more than 1 point!
Having success while losing weight is great, but it is also sort of self-sabotage for me. I'm doing good, losing weight is a slippery slope of cheating. Now that I am down "x" amount of pounds I can have a Reese's peanut butter cup or a handful of chips....sliding backwards. Ugg!!!
All that to say I am taking a break from WW and doing an Atkins/South Beach/Wheat Belly/Caveman with cows thing!
- 1 T. olive oil
- 1/2 head cauliflower, diced
- 1/2 a bell pepper, diced
- 1/2 an onion diced
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- A sprinkle of Italian seasoning
- 10 slices turkey pepperoni, diced
- Salt and pepper to taste
Sauté the veggies and Italian seasoning in the olive oil until soft and a little caramelized. Add water a little at a time if it seems to dry. The water will evaporate as you fry the veggies. When the veggies are done toss in the pepperoni and sauté another minute or two. Turn off heat and sprinkle with as much cheese as your low carb style allows. If you are an Atkins person maybe you will use 1 pound of cheese. If you are a caveman you will not use any cheese. Apparently cows were not created 6th day. Or if you are like me doing low carb/low fat more South Beachish thing you will enjoy a little cheese!
Excuse my photo! It was an afterthought, after I tasted my dish, with my plate in lap and phone in hand.
