Homemade pizza
Incredible! 5.0/5

Cookbook creator says: My kids love pizza and I usually blow it with eating right when we do! BUT, with this pizza, it is much healthier and less fat too! When made with other vegetable toppings, it is even better for you. (The other pizza in the background has other toppings.)

Chewy Granola & Fruit Bars
(no ratings)

These granola bars are chewy and VERY good. They have a LOT of good healthy ingredients, but they are kinda high in fat and calories for the small piece you get!! There would probably be some great ways to lower the fat, sugar, and calories without losing the great flavor. What suggestions do you have?? Be sure to comment on your ideas for everyone to use! Thanks!!!
