Veggie pizza and chicken pita wraps

"Healthy Snacking Options"
By: Vanessa ValenzuelaVeggie pizza and chicken pita wraps

Regular store-ordered pizza can actually be healthy because it can supply the body with calcium, carbohydrates, protein, B vitamins, vitamin A, and vitamin C. Unfortunately, today’s “premium” flavors in extra servings of cheese and processed meat can load each slice with sodium, saturated fat, cholesterol, and hundreds of calories. If your child loves pizza (who doesn’t?), good news is that you can make your own healthy baon version that’s more filling but with less fat and calories per serving than store-bought pizza. 

Veggie pizza

You need:

  • 1 whole grain pizza crust (you may also use pita or wheat bread)
  • 1 small pack tomato pizza sauce
  • ½ cup cheese, grated, preferably low fat or light variety
  • Hefty servings of the following vegetables, sliced thinly: fresh tomatoes, button mushrooms, green bell pepper, onions, olives, broccoli, spinach, zucchini, and pineapple

Procedure:

  1. Place flat pizza crust, pita, or wheat bread on top of a serving dish.
  2. Spread pizza sauce on the pizza crust, just enough to coat the whole surface. Sprinkle a thin layer of grated cheese on top.
  3. Evenly distribute the vegetables then bake in an oven or oven toaster for about 10 minutes.

 

Chicken pita wraps

This low-calorie baon idea is actually a great suggestion for teens and young adults who want to watch their weight yet enjoy a restaurant-style dish.

You need:

  • 1 whole chicken breast
  • ½ white onion or scallion, sliced thinly
  • Pita bread
  • 2 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Procedure:

  1. Rub a little salt and pepper on the whole chicken breast. After a few minutes, grill or bake meat until cooked.
  2. Slice cooked chicken breast into strips and place on pita. Add thinly sliced white onions and roll pita bread.
  3. You may also pack the ingredients separately so that your teenager can just assemble the wrap during meal time. Pour hoisin sauce into a small container and pack as a sauce for the chicken wrap.
Other possible ingredients you can add to make your chicken wrap more filling would be lettuce, cucumber, tomato slices, feta cheese, and corn kernels. If you do not like hoisin sauce, try other light salad dressings like vinaigrette or honey mustard.
