Whole Wheat Red Onion Turmeric Pizza

Whole Wheat Red Onion Turmeric Pizza!

Nine Months ago I created this blog to share my personal story of losing over 40 pounds and to show the real life picture of what my daily food choices look like that have helped me achieve and maintain my current weight, in hopes to help or motivate other normal people, like me, out there.  I never skip meals and I have at least one snack every single day After a lot of trial and error I figured out the healthy way to eat all day long, never be hungry and lose weight!  I make healthy choices whenever I can, but I am a normal person living a real life and I want to enjoy it, so I indulge in special treats regularly too.   It has been a great journey for me, further motivating me to seek out new foods, new recipes and new ways to prepare and eat more healthily and get more Vitamins and Nutrients (and Energy!)  into my day.   I look forward to continuing this journey by highlighting special recipes, new foods and/ or preparations that I discover or create, alongside any helpful Health information or news that I come across through "Today's Tidbit".  Thanks for joining me on my journey to better health and better living!



Today's Tidbit:  Turmeric has been touted for its many health benefits, and recent studies have revealed another:  fighting dementia, and preventing or treating Alzheimer's Disease.   Check it out:

Whole Wheat Red Onion Turmeric Pizza


I decided to get a little Turmeric into my day by making a Whole Wheat Red Onion Turmeric Pizza (pictured here) for dinner the other night.  My husband and I loved the subtle, nuanced flavor, and the Red Onions were a great compliment.  And it was easy!  I just mixed 1 tbsp of Turmeric into 1 cup of Organic No Salt Added Marinara and spread it on a rolled out store-bought Whole Wheat Pizza Dough, topped it with thinly sliced Red Onion and Part Skim Mozzarella Cheese.  10 minutes at 425 in the oven and it was ready to enjoy!

We will definitely be doing this again, such an easy way to boost the healthfulness of one of our favorite meals!
