Due to the frozen pizza recall last week, we've been forced to get our pizza fixes other ways. Being that most frozen pizzas are not healthy, the silver lining was that this was a good opportunity for all of us to rid our freezers of them anyway.
User steen, not willing to tempt fate by buying any more frozen pizzas, found a fabulous recipe for Power Pizza Bagels from Parenting.com that was too good not to share with everyone!

I am always looking for snacks that are tasty and easy and this recipe for Mexican Pinwheels from the American Diabetes Association is one that you can make ahead of time and bring for lunch at work:
Serving Size: 1 tortilla roll, sliced into pinwheels
Total Servings: 1
Prep time: 15 minutes
Chilling time: 2 hours
2 Tbsp canned fat-free refried beans
1 10-inch tortilla
2 Tbsp diced tomato
2 Tbsp drained cooked corn, cooled
1 Tbsp reduced-fat sharp cheddar (optional)
1/2 Tbsp finely chopped cilantro (optional)

Usually in the Snack Attack Group, we share fab, quick and easy (and healthy) snack ideas. This is more of a concept than a recipe, but I thought it fits the group nonetheless. If you want more snack ideas, check out the group -- User suzanne has been posting some really delicious looking things in there.
You've all seen them in stores: Single serving snack packs, 100 calories snacks, etc. From chips to cookies to cereal, you can buy it in single serving, snack size. I'm all for this theory, but sometimes you are paying extra for something you can do just as easily on your own (which I am not all for). Buy some snack-size resealable plastic bags, and make your own single-serving packets by looking at the serving size on the label for calories. This way you can pick virtually anything you want but still get the ease of having pre-measured snacks. You'll save money and get to eat more of what you want. To go a step further, make your own trail mix.
I am sure one of you guys have a great snack idea for trail mix, so share it with everyone and post it in the Snack Attack Group. I may even choose to feature your snack in my next snacks post!
