It’s hard to believe this weekend kicks off college football…I cut the most delicious cantaloupe and strawberries last night. What’s not to love about this time of year…the weather and produce of summer, and the comfort and fun of fall. Ahhhh.. 🙂
But this weekend, fall will be in full gear with football and week 1 of the Prevention Chili Contest! I can hardly wait! 😀
4 pieces of flatbread or flour tortillas
1 cup low fat ricotta cheese
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 1 large zucchinis
1 cup grated 2% mozzarella cheese, shredded
Red pepper flakes to taste
Preheat oven to 450° F.
In a bowl, combine the ricotta, garlic, salt and pepper. Mix until thoroughly combined.
Grate the zucchini and dry with a couple of paper towels, removing most of the released moisture.
Put the grated zucchini in a bowl and add the grated mozzarella. Combine well will a little salt and pepper.
Place flatbread on a wire rack or baking sheet. On your flatbread, spread a layer of the ricotta cheese, divided among the 4 flatbread.
Top with a layer of the zucchini, about 3/4 of an inch thick (or again, just separate between pizzas evenly)
Sprinkle zucchini with red pepper flakes.
Bake in the oven for 12 – 15 minutes, or until the edges of your flatbread are crisp and the cheese has begun to golden. Serves 4.

Result: Delicious! And so simple! These whip together in 5 minutes and only cook for 12-15 — love it! Mr. Prevention and our friend loved them…I will be making again! 😀
It’s my long day today…but I am meeting with 2 local dietitians tonight (over martinis 😉 ) to discuss a marketing and business plan to offer nutrition consultation to local endocrinology and nephrology offices! I’m very excited! Here goes nothing! 😀
Question: What’s your dream job? If you were to go to school for something TODAY, what would it be?
I’ve been toying with the idea of going back to school for nursing. There’s online options and I think it’d be great…but I’m just not sure. I don’t want to be an RN in the traditional sense, but I do want to get into management at some point in my career, preferably in diabetes. I think with being an RD -and- an RN…it would be hard not to succeed! Decisions, decisions!
But first things first…squeezing in a run before work after last night’s workout turned into arm curls with a few wings and beer at Buffalo Wild Wings. The things we do for love…*eye roll* Like I said on Facebook last night…our new proximity to Buffalo Wild Wings is nothing short of dangerous!!
