Today, the kiddos, Hubby and I spent the day together running around town in search of supplies for something exciting we have coming up shortly :). Despite the typical wet Bank Holiday weekend weather, it was great to spend this time as a family and the kids were on their best behaviour. Although, it wasn’t long before the ‘we’re hungry…’ cries were heard. Seriously, you’d think I never feed them.
As a treat, we agreed to take them to Pizza Hut for lunch – all the while I was secretly panicking inside about what *I* would find to eat and whether my willpower would hold out.
Now, I have no issues over treat meals. I’m all for them! But, I have this crazy little conversation in my head with myself (hold fire on the straight jackets!) about whether I truly want [whatever it is]. I work so bloody hard at keeping on track, I would be so disappointed if I was to unravel it all for the sake of a moment of weakness. But I needn’t of worried. OMG, who knew that Pizza Hut had a new low-calorie pizza section?!?!
I ordered the Chicken Delight 500 calorie pizza. It was by far the best healthy-option pizza I have EVER eaten. It was cooked to perfection…
It was like a really, really thin pizza base. Almost tortilla wrap thin. Topped with chicken, red onions, mushrooms and cheese.
The chicken was really moist and tender and not at all dry like often happens. The mushrooms were lightly cooked and the red onion still had some tang. It was good! Admittedly, it wasn’t like an entire pan of pizza, more like a big triangle slice, but hey – it was lunchtime. I’d never normally eat this much midday and most likely I’d survive until my next meal
It was served with a small side of rocket and sliced cherry tomatoes which was nice, as the salad bar only had regular lettuce. I like the pepperiness of rocket. But I still managed an entire bowl from the salad bar, plus a re-fill. I stuck with diet coke, too. (Don’t you just love when they do free refills).
And since this was a healthier option, I didn’t feel guilty when I ‘tested’ some of the kiddos ice-cream factory. Hey, I’m a good mum, okay – just checkin’ it was all okay for them!
